The first radio observations of comet Elenin

PostDateIcon September 9th, 2011 | PostAuthorIcon Author: Leonid Elenin

American radio astronomers report that did not detect any water coming from any remains of comet Elenin. Amy Lovell observed it for 7 hours on Sept 7 using the Green Bank Telescope (it is not yet in the Arecibo declination window) and did not detect any OH line above the noise level of 2.4 mJy. This puts a limit of a few times 10molecules/second on the gas production rate, which is about 100 times less than earlier predictions. This data may confirm disintegration proccess in comet’s nucleus which stareted on mid August. The next radio observations may be carry out on October by Arecibo radio observatory, of course if we will see comet Elenin on images from SOHO spacecraft.

Will the REAL Planet X Please Stand Up? Another Nibiru Candidate, Brown Dwarf “258 Tyche” Eludes Astronomers

Will the REAL Planet X aka Nibiru Please Stand Up?

In 2011 deep space objects, asteroids, planetoids, gas giants and newly discovered  comets are converging in public awareness as the ancient [ Planet X ] Nibiru legend suddenly takes on new relevance. New space discoveries are coming at astronomers so fast it’s hard to keep up. In December 2010 the discovery of Comet Elenin fascinated astronomers, as it was Russian amateur astronomers Leonid Elenin who made the discovery. An asteroid one miles wide is plummeting toward earth as well, keeping observatories on their toes. Now NASA scientists are trying to ascertain just exactly WHAT ELSE is lurking deep within the Oort Cloud, and just exactly how big the object might be. Move over Jupiter. The possible, although doubtful, discovery of a gas giant four times the size of our largest planetary neighbor would throw all current astronomy textbooks into the dustbin, rewriting the known facts about our solar system once again.

You know how you sometimes can sense that something is present even though you can’t see it? Well, astronomers are getting that feeling about a giant, hidden object in space.

And when we say giant, we mean GIANT.

Evidence is mounting that either a brown dwarf star or a gas giant planet is lurking at the outermost reaches of our solar system, far beyond Pluto. The theoretical object, dubbed Tyche, is estimated to be four times the size of Jupiter and 15,000 times farther from the sun than Earth, according to a story in the British paper The Independent.

Astrophysicists John Matese and Daniel Whitmire from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette think data from NASA’s infrared space telescope WISE will confirm Tyche’s existence and location within two years.

The presence of such a massive object in the solar system’s far-flung Oort Cloud could explain a barrage of comets from an unexpected direction, according to a December article at Space.com.

Its 27 million-year orbit could also explain a pattern of mass extinctions on Earth, scientists say.

Brown dwarfs are cold “failed” stars; their dimness and lack of heat radiation can make them hard to detect. Gas giants are huge planets – like Saturn, Jupiter and Neptune – that are made up of gases and may lack a solid surface like Earth’s.

Whitmire told The Independent that Tyche will probably be composed of hydrogen and helium and have colorful spots, bands and clouds like Jupiter.

“You’d also expect it to have moons,” he said. “All the outer planets have them.”

Tyche was first hypothesized in 1984 as Nemesis, a dark companion star to the sun. It’s been the subject of astronomical research and debate ever since. In July, another Space.com article said the celestial evidence suggests Tyche could not possibly exist.

To distinguish it from the Nemesis star theory, Matese and Whitmire are calling their object Tyche, after the good sister of the goddess Nemesis in Greek mythology.

Their research is published in Icarus, the International Journal of Solar System Studies.

Up telescope! Search begins for giant new planet
Tyche may be bigger than Jupiter and orbit at the outer edge of the solar system

By Paul Rodgers
Sunday, 13 February 2011

If you grew up thinking there were nine planets and were shocked when Pluto was demoted five years ago, get ready for another surprise. There may be nine after all, and Jupiter may not be the largest.

The hunt is on for a gas giant up to four times the mass of Jupiter thought to be lurking in the outer Oort Cloud, the most remote region of the solar system. The orbit of Tyche (pronounced ty-kee), would be 15,000 times farther from the Sun than the Earth’s, and 375 times farther than Pluto’s, which is why it hasn’t been seen so far.

But scientists now believe the proof of its existence has already been gathered by a Nasa space telescope, Wise, and is just waiting to be analysed.

The first tranche of data is to be released in April, and astrophysicists John Matese and Daniel Whitmire from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette think it will reveal Tyche within two years. “If it does, John and I will be doing cartwheels,” Professor Whitmire said. “And that’s not easy at our age.”

Once Tyche has been located, other telescopes could be pointed at it to confirm the discovery.

Whether it would become the new ninth planet would be decided by the International Astronomical Union (IAU). The main argument against is that Tyche probably formed around another star and was later captured by the Sun’s gravitational field. The IAU may choose to create a whole new category for Tyche, Professor Matese said.

The IAU would also have the final say about the gas giant’s name. To the Greeks, Tyche was the goddess responsible for the destiny of cities. Her name was provisionally chosen in reference to an earlier hypothesis, now largely abandoned, that the Sun might be part of a binary star system with a dim companion, tentatively called Nemesis, that was thought responsible for mass extinctions on Earth. In myth, Tyche was the good sister of Nemesis.

Tyche will almost certainly be made up mostly of hydrogen and helium and will probably have an atmosphere much like Jupiter’s, with colourful spots and bands and clouds, Professor Whitmire said. “You’d also expect it to have moons. All the outer planets have them,” he added.

What will make it stand out in the Wise data is its temperature, predicted to be around -73C, four or five times warmer than Pluto. “The heat is left over from its formation,” Professor Whitmire said. “It takes an object this size a long time to cool off.”

Most of the billions of objects in the Oort Cloud – a sphere one light year in radius stretching a quarter of the distance to Alpha Centauri, the brightest star in the southern constellation – are lumps of dirty ice at temperatures much closer to absolute zero (-273C).

A few of these are dislodged from their orbits by the galactic tide – the combined gravitational pull from the billions of stars towards the centre of the Milky Way – and start the long fall into the inner solar system.

As these long-period comets get closer to the Sun, some of the ice boils off, forming the characteristic tails that make them visible.

Professors Matese and Whitmire first proposed the existence of Tyche to explain why many of these long-period comets were coming from the wrong direction. In their latest paper, published in the February issue of Icarus, the international journal of solar system studies, they report that more than 20 per cent too many of the long-period comets observed since 1898 arrive from a band circling the sky at a higher angle than predicted by the galactic-tide theory.

No other proposal has been put forward to explain this anomaly since it was first suggested 12 years ago. But the Tyche hypothesis does have one flaw. Conventional theory holds that the gas giant should also dislodge comets from the inner Oort Cloud, but these have not been observed.

Professor Matese suggests this may be because these comets have already been tugged out of their orbits and, after several passes through the inner solar system, have faded to the point that they are much harder to detect.

So if it is real, Tyche may not only be disrupting the orbits of comets, it may also overturn an established scientific theory.

NASA’s Second Close Encounter With a Comet

2.13.11 Repost Courtesy of the New York Times:

Article By KENNETH CHANG
Published: February 13, 2011

The last time NASA visited the Tempel 1 comet, it was with fireworks, on July 4, 2005. On that day, the Deep Impact spacecraft slammed an 820-pound projectile into Tempel 1, excavating a plume of ice and dust.

NASA

The Tempel 1 comet was photographed by NASA’s Deep Impact spacecraft in 2005.

On Monday nightValentine’s Day — NASA will return to Tempel 1 but will not bombard it. This time, a different spacecraft, Stardust, will zip past at more than 24,000 miles per hour, taking 72 high-resolution pictures of the comet’s surface.

Stardust will make its closest approach, within 125 miles, at 11:37 p.m. Eastern time.

Tim Larson, the mission’s project manager, said NASA was not deliberately scheduling its missions to coincide with holidays. “That’s just how the orbital mechanics worked out on these,” he said, “although it makes for great P.R.”

Tempel 1 will be the first comet to be seen at close range twice, and scientists will make a then-and-now comparison — one that they expect will reveal a change in topography and tell them more about the inner workings of comets.

“Here’s a chance where we can see what has changed, how much has changed,” said Joseph Veverka, a professor of astronomy at Cornell and the mission’s principal investigator, “so we’ll start unraveling the history of a comet’s surface.”

For example, photographs taken by Deep Impact in 2005 showed areas that looked old and others that seemed much younger. But the snapshots did not tell the ages of any of them. “We have no idea whether we’re talking about things that have been there for a hundred years, a thousand years, a million years,” Dr. Veverka said.

In the five and a half years since Deep Impact’s visit, Tempel 1 — whose orbit brings it as close to the Sun as Mars and as far away as Jupiter — has completed a full orbit.

Stardust was launched in 1999 and arrived five years later at its primary destination, a comet named Wild 2, where it collected particles of dust. Stardust then looped back to Earth and released a canister containing the comet dust, which parachuted back to the ground.

The spacecraft, still operating well, continued onward, and NASA decided to use it for a return visit to Tempel 1. (Deep Impact, meanwhile, also extended its scientific journey, visiting another comet last November.)

One more puzzle that scientists may be able to solve with the second look at Tempel 1 involves depressions that look like the type of craters caused by impacts. The depressions, though, could have been caused by explosions that were a result of underground ice that converted to gas.

The scientists will now be able to compare the depressions with something they know is definitely a crater — the scar left by Deep Impact. “Simple question,” Dr. Veverka said, “direct answer.”

BREAKING:  NASA’s SOHO Satellite Imagery Captures Large Celestial Body Adjacent to Our Sun, Photos, screenshot, video:

 

This celestial object is the same size and distance from the sun as the “second sun” which people around the world are capturing on video.

 

To be on the safe side I also grabbed a screen shot of the entire web page on NASA SOHO, before they find this object in the photo feed and yank it down. Here it is below. Make a screen shot or PDF of this post and also send this page far and wide. We have to keep putting the truth out there, no matter what the “official story line” is. Any emails or comments trying to get me to believe that this huge object is either Venus or the moon will be deleted. It’s too huge to be Venus, and the moon is rotating us here on earth 93 million miles away from the sun.

 

NASA Satellite imagery clearly conflicts with their own PR story about nothing being out there. This object was photographed close to the sun. It’s the same exact size and proportion as the “second sun” that people all around the world are now recording on video and in photos. See large photo close up above this screen shot.
Live Webcam from the Neumayer Research Station in Antarctica for 9.26.11 – what is this sun-like object which flashes by, and it is apparently in full eclipse? If it’s just a sunrise then tell me so. Please someone with an astronomy background, can you weight in? Here’s the link:

Comet Elenin “big Media” News Stories [ or is it actually disinformation? ] 9.19.11

 

Doomsday Comet Elenin Goes Out With A Whimper

 

Doomsday Comet Fades Away

 

The most recent photos of Comet Elenin

 

[ Preface:  There exists great confusion about the difference between Comet Elenin and Nibiru. There also exists great confusion and disparity of opinion as to exactly what Nibiru is, and exactly what Comet Elenin is. I have now examined nearly a hundred articles, videos, essays, blogs and theoretical amateur astronomy predictions concerning these two objects and almost none of them corroborate. This is not good. When I am writing about these objects, which I often write about in the same post, I am writing about two different objects.

 

Rudimentary fifth grade astronomy teaches that comets are miniscule compared to the size of planets, likewise a brown dwarf star may be planet sized, and those sizes vary. We frankly do not know how large a comet can become. Comets are erratic, they can be composed of ice, or gases, or both and they can be composed of gases which would be poisonous to people. Comet Elenin is now reported to be fading and is no threat to human populations on earth.

 

About Nibiru and the small second sun:

 

The North Wales video footage below IS NOT COMET ELENIN. I believe it is of a smaller second sun which is now well within our solar system and can be seen in daylight. This visible second sun may or may not be Nibiru. Zecharia Sitchin maintains that Nibiru IS NOT a brown dwarf star, but is a planet on a long elliptical 3600 year orbit, which he stated will not be back in our solar system until the year 2060 – 2065 or later. Others like Marshall Masters [ see below ] insist that Nibiru is a binary twin, another smaller star or sun, which is a companion to our own sun and is now rapidly approaching our solar system.

 

This might give the reader just a few additional facts to work with in trying to do what I am doing, which is to wade through hip deep fields of kook theory, amateur astronomy hysteria, layman speculation, government disinformation, and rumor mill nonsense  – trying to get at the truth about what it is that people all over the world are now seeing in the sky and recording on videotape. I now have dozens and dozens of those video recordings posted on this blog, and my two others:  Photonic Portal 2037 and All Nibiru 247.

 

So …. before you begin mouthing off about how wrong I am on this or that, comprehend this. I’m not trying to be “right” about the flavor of the week internet rumor. I, like you, am looking for the truth. I want to know WHAT this second sun is, that people are seeing everywhere. So much for Nibiru commentary.

 

About Comet Elenin:

 

In the past 14 days I have seen the rumor that Comet Elenin has disintegrated, is breaking up, and right afterward it was posted in the next days that people had proof that it was intact and the “breaking up” story was disinformation. Can you see, based on “www dark comedy” like this, how difficult it might be to produce factual reporting?  Truthfully, apparently even the experts do not really know what or where these objects really are, else they do know and they are on a bender to spray the internet with as much confusing disinformation about Nibiru and Elenin as possible.

 

Be patient with me, and I will be patient with the process as the truth tries mightily to bubble up out of the froth of unintentional stupidity that is out there. Thanks and God bless. – Chase ]

 

Breaking video update September 17th 2011 from North Wales The remarkable home videos taken below clearly capture a small second sun accompanying our own sun. This second sun can now be seen in broad daylight. These are two more historic and significant videos.

Hopi Blue Star Kachina Prophecy Examined by Marshall Masters

 

This post shot to the number 1 position in views in the several days it’s been up, indicating people are urgently wanting to be updated on what to expect from Comet Elenin. It’s been viewed nearly 90,000 times in 9 days. I’ll be adding more updates to this page as I find them.

 

Below are two video updates from Marshall Masters on Comet Elenin. Marshall covers alot of ground in the first 39 minute report, and you should watch it from start to finish. He discusses these important known historical and scientific facts:

 

  • =>Planned NWO sponsored disinformation campaigns designed to keep the world public from knowing the truthful facts about Comet Elenin

 

  • =>Comet Elenin as a possible “harbinger” comet, a.k.a. the possibility of the fulfillment of the Hopi Blue Star Kachina prophecy, followed by the fulfillment of the Red Star Kachina prophecy as well

 

The Hopi predicted the blue star kachina would be traveling with “nephews” – as it turns out, Elenin is traveling with other objects in parallel transit toward earth.

 

  • =>The history of four other recent comet fly-bys since 1910 and how the world and scientific public has reacted to them

 

  • =>The July 30th discovery that Comet Elenin contains a considerable amount of hydrogen cyanide, a known poison, which was last used to execute a prisoner on death row in 1999. Hydrogen cyanide is known by it’s peculiar “almond” smell. Comet Elenin presents the possibility that earth might fly through it’s tail, thus exposing the world population to possibly toxic levels of hydrogen cyanide poisoning. In 1910 the fears and concerns surrounding Halley’s Comet were similar, and people reacted in fear, purchasing gas masks and anti-hydrogen cyanide pills from profiteering “snake oil salesmen.” There are some similarities in the levels of public fear and concern surrounding Comet Elenin.

 

The bible codes for Comet Elenin contain several interesting intersections

 

  • => Comet Elenin as a giant “cosmic capacitor” due to it’s large hydrogen cyanide content. Comet Elenin’s dielectric conductivity and how it might behave electrically as it passes by the earth

 

  • =>The sudden disintegration of Comet S4 Linear in 2000 right before it passed over the plane of the ecliptic

 

  • =>The sudden brightening of 17P Comet Holmes in October of 2007 to a size larger than the diameter of our own sun, with further scientific speculation as to whether Comet Elenin might behave in the same way on [ of all dates, eerily ] 9.11.2011, when it reaches perihelion and comes the closest to our own sun, at which time it will also pass between our earth and the sun across the plane of the ecliptic

 

  • => In August of this year Comet Elenin began to brighten suddenly, becoming larger in diameter than the planet Jupiter, taking many astronomers by surprise

 

  • => The “distance” factor – Comet Holmes passed earth in the vicinity of the orbit of Mars. However, Comet Elenin will be passing closer, in the vicinity of the region between earth and Venus

 

  • => A forecast of the time periods between now and January 16th 2012 when the most probable danger from Comet Elenin’s passage might occur, along with periods noted where the danger level, or “threat level” from Elenin will begin to subside

 

  • => What the average person can and should do to prepare

 

I also encourage everyone to get on the internet and do your own research. I could watch Elenin videos 24-7 at this point and not see them all. And a girl does need her beauty sleep from time to time. Here’s Marshall’s latest …. See also http://yowusa.com and http://yowusa.com/videos/

My earlier post on the discovery of Comet Elenin is below:

Copyright 2011-3011 By Photonic Portal, All Rights Reserved.

Amateur Russian astronomer Leonid Elenin apparently discovered a new heavenly body, Comet Elenin, aka [ C/2010-X1 ], which has been named after him, on an 18″ diameter reflecting telescope. Or did he? There’s an apparent international news blackout on this recent astronomy discovery. Other amateur astronomers wonder why, and are now weighing in with their opinions. At least one video states the comet will be visible to the naked eye by August of 2011. Adding to the uncertainty is the fact that the actual closest distance  that Comet Elenin will pass by the earth is being re-calculated frequently, and gets smaller with each recalculation.

Earth may possibly pass through the debris tail of Elenin, and if the comet is dragging a mass of small rocks and other debris gathered in it’s tail by gravity, our world would be in for quite a pummeling from the debris field during the week of October 18th 2011.

I’m sure by now many are openly speculating as to whether Comet Elenin is Nibiru. I’m still perusing citizen journalist videos on this topic. Below are a few of those.

As of January 27th 2011 comet Elenin was still well outside our solar system’s enormous outer Oort Cloud. Are there any accurate predictions available regarding what might happen as the comet passes through the Oort Cloud, dispersing and disrupting the orbits of billions of asteroids and sending them tumbling toward the inner solar system, pulled by the Sun‘s immense gravity?

One video below shows Earth passing through the tail of Comet Elenin in November of 2011.

I am now on a “news quest” for more information on Comet Elenin and I’d like to know why American media has little  to say about this discovery. Below are some recent discoveries:
