Comet Lovejoy near star Polaris...1260 days since it's resurrection on the Sun Dec 16th, 2011
Dec 16th, 2011

COMET LOVEJOY SURVIVES: Incredibly, sungrazing Comet Lovejoy has survived its close encounter with the sun. Lovejoy flew only 140,000 km over the stellar surface during the early hours of Dec. 16th. Experts expected the icy sundiver to be destroyed. Instead, NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory caught the comet emerging from perihelion (closest approach) apparently intact:



Lovejoy is fading but is still, remarkably, bright enough to be seen with a pair of binoculars.

It is now drifting serenely up towards Polaris, the Pole Star, and that means it is very easy for even the most inexperienced comet hunter to find: if you know where to find Polaris, you can find Comet Lovejoy as it heads away from Earth and returns to the cold, lonely depths of the outer solar system. It wonít grace our skies again until the year 15382!

And it shall be holy:
And the house of Jacob shall possess their possessions."

Comet Lovejoy will be in Ursa Major the Big Sheep Pen full of Godís Good Sheep.

Comet Lovejoy (C/2013 R1) was officially discovered in line with Orionís Belt (the 3 Crosses on Calvary) on September 9th, 2013

Very interesting. It says that it is lined-up with
the Polaris star--which the "Big Dipper" points to
traditionally, right?

Well, where exactly is it in the solar system, has it
left the edge of the last planet's rotation or is it
still present? Just wondering because the last thing
I knew, it was passing Jupiter and that was a couple
of weeks ago. Thanks for the information.

cheers

 Quoting: christian

Terry Lovejoy discovered more than one comet.

The sungrazing comet C/2011 W3 (Lovejoy) disintegrated 2 days after it's closes approach to the sun and would be (if he had survived) at a distance of 13 AU in the constellation Monoceros in the southern sky.

The comet you are talking about, C/2014 Q2 (Lovejoy), is the fifth comet discovered by Terry Lovejoy and has nothing to do with the sungrazing comet Lovejoy.


Comet Lovejoy will be in Ursa Major the Big Sheep Pen full of Godís Good Sheep.

Comet Lovejoy (C/2013 R1) was officially discovered in line with Orionís Belt (the 3 Crosses on Calvary) on September 9th, 2013
 Quoting: christian

And again you got the wrong comet. C/2013 R1 (Lovejoy), the fourth comet discovered by Terry Lovejoy, is now at a distance of 5.5 AU from Earth in the southern constellation Ara and was never near Ursa Major.


Please get you facts straight and don't post bullshit like this.

hey now, that's not nice.
to be honest, it's hard to get them mixed up because for some reason they keep naming several of them Lovejoy. I've lost count of how many, but if I remember correctly at least four or five Lovejoys. (mixes me up sometimes too).

the article was actually a great reminder because of the Lovejoy that grazed and survived earlier in the year. And now it's near one of the most important stars relevant to the balance of our system! symbolic, don't you think?

I agree, it's easy to mix them up - but if I make a post about this matter, I should do some research beforehand to avoid a mix-up.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 68817180

That one, C/2011 W3 (Lovejoy), survived only two days, disintegrated and is no more (even if he had survived, it would by now 13 AU in the southern constellation Monoceros, nowhere near Polaris) and this was in December 2011.


And now it's near one of the most important stars relevant to the balance of our system! symbolic, don't you think?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 68817180

The one near Polaris is C/2014 Q2 (Lovejoy).
