Comet ISON trajectory changed?

Comet ISONInteresting information came through user Virtual Astro He writes that Ison looks almost undamaged. But, it seems, has tainted its orbit. Perhaps this was due to the gravitational effects of the sun.

NASA scientists have failed to predict the trajectory, and they incorrectly stated that the comet ISON collapsed and died during a meeting with the Sun. Read the rest of this entry »

Earth is future Comet century

 ISONIn the coming days, the bare eye can observe important astronomical event of the century we quickly approaching bright and beautiful comet ISON (C/2012 S1), which is called comet century. November 28, the comet will be at a coldness of 1.1 million km from the Sun, that is 150 times closer to the luminary than the

Earth. Solar ISON attraction will accelerate to 380 kilometers per second, and the sun will warm the surface up to +2760 ° C. Read the rest of this entry »

Comet ISON or a fresh doomsday date

ISONComet ISON century was twenty eighth of November will approach the Sun as close as possible 1.1 million km. Media does not advertise this news. And for good reason.

Many scholars argue that this comet will be visible even in daytime. Its brightness it can outshine even the moon. If scientists are not wrong in their predictions, then the sky we can see two moons at once. Read the rest of this entry »

Comet Encke, flying tail first

flying tailThe morning of the 12th of October. There is a hypothesis that the Tunguska meteorite was the largest fragment of Comet Encke Every 3.3 years Comet Encke, going the way of the solar system in an elliptical orbit from outside the orbit of Mars , close to the Sun and is inside the orbit of Mercury . It was discovered in 1786 by astronomer Encke and is now one of the most-studied comets. This is her 59th return to the Sun, recorded in the documents. Indeed, the comet Encke had to open a few thousand years earlier. Read the rest of this entry »

When will Comet ISON field cameras satellites STEREO?

ISONMany amateur astronomers wonder, where are the pictures of the comet ISON from aboard space solar observatory STEREO? In fact, just yesterday on the official website of the comet mission was to start the camera view “HI2” ship “STEREO-A.” The path of the comet ISON through the field of view “HI2” ship “STEREO-A” on October 10 (left), 23 November 2013 (right). But it has two answers: 1 Spacecraft are on the other side of the sun and this leads to the fact that high-resolution frames arriving on Earth delayed 2-3 days. We have just received the footage from there. Two In the part of the frame where there will be a comet, permeation barely falls short of the brilliance of a comet. At the edge of the picture big aberration, significantly reduces the quality of the image. Read the rest of this entry »

What we face in the face of a comet ISON?

ISONI have to this day never heard of it , but that’s weird. For what that hour I received several messages just for her, this new cosmic threat. All anything , I might not be interested in that information, but that’s … Official sources prefer to ignore this fact . For those who like me, not in the subject , I will explain that the comet was not discovered ISON ” Hubble ” how anything without air defense forces , and amateur astronomers Vitali Nevski and Artyom Novichonok September 21, 2012 by 40cm . Refletora installed at the observatory ISON (International Scientific Optical Network, the International Scientific Optical Network ) near Kislovodsk . Read the rest of this entry »

Apparatus studying Mars take a look at the comet of the century

MarsOver the next year, near the Red Planet will fly two comets. The news itself is neither good nor bad. But it has raised fears of scientists who fear that the particles of cosmic wanderers can damage satellites of Mars involved in surveillance for and study of its surface. Currently, the orbit of the Red Planet is three operating spacecraft-NASA Odyssey mission and the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO), as well as the European Mars Express. Also, two existing rover currently exploring Mars surface itself- it’s Curiosity and Opportunity. All of these spacecraft will be able to observe the comet ISON, which is closer to Mars this year, and behind her, and C/2013 A1 in 2014.
