Re: 17P/Holmes - Enigma 'Comet'
I seriously stared at this thing so long, I had no idea what it was and it freaked me out. I started hunting online and I figured out it was this. Its about 7am in Iowa USA. It is CRAZY bright! I thought the spikes from it were just ecause of my window glaring but I walked outside and it was still there!?!?!? This was crazy amazing to see. I annoyingly woke up about 8 people who were equally impressed. It looks amazing. We have a completely clear sky here. I called my fiance in a city and he could see it too (I happen to be home on a farm visiting my parents so I can see it really well due to the lack of lights here)

Sound´s very exciting, thanks for your interesting report amanda!

I wish I could see it, we still have the typical high fog which normally prevails for days. :(

I am curious if it has brightened even more since ... your description suggests that.

When you've read into the "electric universe" theory, this comets behaviour becomes even more interesting..

The only thing that springs to mind is that there is more energy flowing through our solar system hf

I think if you look northeast after sunset, and use the map above to identify the constellations, you should see it.

OK the simulation is linked to on spaceweather anyway:
[link to ssd.jpl.nasa.gov]

It appears that Holmes basically stays within Jupiter's orbit all the time and has a almost circular orbit itself, it comes near the sun every seven years. What a strange comet IMO, more like a mini planet with an off path ...
 Quoting: FreeFlow



you see how close that Comet comes to Mars?

what would happen if it hit Mars?

It appears so from the default angle, it is well above the planet's plane, you can see that if you you change the settings by scrolling the vertical bar on the side.

And it's on its way out already so that opportunity was missed anyway, lol.

Re: 17P/Holmes - Enigma 'Comet'
It's still developing:

STRANGE COMET: Astronomers around the world agree, Comet 17P/Holmes is one of the strangest things ever to explode in the night sky. It's a comet, yet it looks like a planet with a golden core and a green atmosphere:
[link to spaceweather.com]

Chris Shur of Payson, Arizona, took this picture last night using his 12.5-inch telescope and a Canon XTi digital camera. "The comet was yellow and green, very bright in the viewfinder," he says.

Yesterday, Comet Holmes shocked sky watchers with a spectacular eruption, brightening almost a million-fold from 17th to 2.5th magnitude in a matter of hours. The comet is now visible to the naked eye--even from light polluted cities--high in the northern sky after sunset: finder chart.

The golden hue of Holmes' core is probably the color of sunlight scattered by comet dust, while the green fringe likely signifies an atmosphere rich in diatomic carbon and cyanogen (substances found in many green comets). There are reports that the fuzzball is expanding and taking on a lopsided shape--the first signs of a tail? Amateur astronomers are encouraged to monitor developments. After sunset, point your backyard telescope at the extra "star" in the thigh of Perseus.

MEGAOUTBURST
HOT NEWS: Comet 17P/Holmes shocked astronomers today with a spectacular eruption. The 17th magnitude comet has brightened by a factor of five hundred thousand or more during the past 24 hours becoming a naked-eye object in the evening sky. Look for a golden 2.5th magnitude fuzzball in the constellation Perseus after sunset. "This is unbelievable!" says Iranian astronomer Babak Tafreshi. "I was amazed to find Comet Holmes so easily with the naked-eye in the light-polluted skies of metropolitan Tehran."

Re: 17P/Holmes - Enigma 'Comet'
that is a mind snap... first we hear from the Russians that we will be getting super cosmic energy in waves...then Michael Tsarion says to expect it with the emergence of Pluto...or the FULL MOON...that is already fat and full, but not expected until the 26th (scroll down the space weather page) and the astrologers are predicting it is a "window of consciousness"... how about all that for "coincidence"?

i don't think it's a coincidance, and theres much more going on than you have even mentioned. thread should definitly get bumped and pinned.
