Re: Comet Lovejoy survives perihelion!
I've been looking all over, and likely missed it, but.... When exactly is perihelion? Is it today, the 15th, at 7:00pm EST? I'm tired of looking and not finding the answer.

Thanks!
 Quoting: Wotansdottir


Whoops, of course I find it right after asking.


this is the prediction..

[...]Astronomer Gareth V. Williams computed a preliminary orbit for the comet, which indicates that perihelion (closest approach to the sun) will occur at 7 p.m. EST Dec. 15 (00:00 GMT on Dec. 16) at a distance of 548,000 miles (882,000 km) from the center of the sun, meaning that the comet will skim a mere 115,000 miles (186,000 km) above the solar surface, putting it into the special classification of a "Kreutz Sungrazer."

"If one understands that socialism is not a share-the-wealth programme, but is in reality a method to consolidate and control the wealth, then the seeming paradox of super-rich men promoting socialism becomes no paradox at all. Instead, it becomes logical, even the perfect tool of power-seeking megalomaniacs.

Communism or more accurately, socialism, is not a movement of the downtrodden masses, but of the economic elite."

Re: Comet Lovejoy survives perihelion!
Could someone please tell me when the best time to look for this Comet is?

I live in the EST time zone. Also which direction to look.


Thank you very much, really cool thread and I hope I have a chance to see this and have a few beers.

the pictures below are an enlargement of Comet Lovejoy from the 00:54 LASCO C3 image on the link above..

I thought it was sort of interesting due to all the right angles at the head of the Comet

SOHO should be coming into contact right around now. We have 2hr pass which should be enough time to get a few realtime images

Not unless it manages to survive perihelion, and even then, not right now. The only way you or I will see it for the next several hours is through the various sun-watching satellites.
