SEEKING THE TRUTH 

VICTORIAN UFO ACTION

Meteor Showers 2013

There's a notable yearly meteor shower happening called ‘Taurids’ - UFO Researchers should know of these events. See my listing at the end of this page...http://www.davidreneke.com/tonights-sky/

 

Here’s some info – The Taurids are extremely long lasting (September 25 to November 25) but usually don’t offer more than about 7 meteors per hour. However, the Taurids are well-known for their high percentage of fireballs – exceptionally bright meteors. The other Taurid shower – the North Taurids – should add a few more meteors to the mix, but the forecast calls for the North Taurid shower to be raining down the most meteors a week from now, or in the second weekend of November 2013. Luckily, the thin waxing crescent moon will set at early evening, leaving dark skies for the peak night of the South Taurid meteor shower. The South Taurids are expected to produce the most meteors in the wee hours just after midnight on November 5. Remember, even a single bright meteor can make your night!

 Elenin, the facts

Is Earth's impending doom close at hand?

It starts out innocently enough: a small speck against a field of background stars, barely noticeable in the image data. But… it’s a speck that wasn’t there before. Subsequent images confirm its existence – there’s something out there. Something bright, something large, and it’s moving through our solar system very quickly. The faint blur indicates that it’s a comet, an icy visitor from the outermost reaches of the solar system. And it’s headed straight toward Earth.

Exhaustive calculations are run and re-run. Computer simulations are executed. All possibilities are taken into consideration, and yet there’s no alternative to be found; our world will face a close encounter with a comet in mere months’ time. Phone calls are made, a flurry of electronic messages fly between computer terminals across the world, consultations are held with top experts in the field. We are unprepared… what can we do? What does this mean for civilization as we know it? What will this speeding icy bullet from outer space do to our planet?

The answer? Nothing.

Nothing at all. In fact, it probably won’t even be very interesting to look at – if you can even find it when it passes by.

(Sorry for the let-down.)

 

There’s been a lot of buzz in the past several months regarding Comet Elenin, a.k.a. C/2010 X1, which was discovered by Russian astronomer Leonid Elenin on December 10, 2010. Elenin spotted the comet using a telescope in New Mexico remotely from his location in Lyubertsy, Russia. At that time it was about 647 million kilometers (401 million miles) from Earth… in the time since it has closed the distance considerably, and is now around 270 million km away. Elenin is a long-period comet, which means it has a rather large orbit around the Sun… it comes in from a vast distance, swings around the Sun and heads back out to the depths of the solar system – a round trip lasting over 10,000 years. During its current trip it will pass by Earth on October 16, coming as close as 35 million km (22 million miles).

 

Elenin's orbit via the JPL Small-Body Database Browser

Yes, 22 million miles.

That’s pretty far.

Way too far for us to be affected by anything a comet has to offer. Especially a not-particularly-large comet like Elenin.

Some of the doomy-gloomy internet sites have been mentioning the size of Elenin as being 80,000 km across. This is a scary, exaggerated number that may be referring to the size of Elenin’s coma – a hazy cloud of icy particles that surrounds a much, much smaller nucleus. The coma can be extensive but is insubstantial; it’s akin to icy cigarette smoke. Less than that, in fact… a comet’s coma and tail are even more of a vacuum than can be reproduced in a lab on Earth! In reality most comets have a nucleus smaller than 10km…that’s less than a billionth the mass of Earth (and a far cry from 80,000 km.) We have no reason to think that Elenin is any larger than this – it’s most likely smaller.

Ok, but how about the gravitational and/or magnetic effect of a comet passing by Earth? That’s surely got to do something, right? To Earth’s crust, or the tides? For the answer to that, I will refer to Don Yeomans, a researcher at NASA’s Near-Earth Object Program Office at JPL:

"Comet Elenin will not only be far away, it is also on the small side for comets. And comets are not the most densely-packed objects out there. They usually have the density of something akin to loosely packed icy dirt," said Yeomans. "So you’ve got a modest-sized icy dirtball that is getting no closer than 35 million kilometers. It will have an immeasurably miniscule influence on our planet. By comparison, my subcompact automobile exerts a greater influence on the ocean’s tides than comet Elenin ever will."

"It will have an immeasurably miniscule influence on our planet. By comparison, my subcompact automobile exerts a greater influence on the ocean’s tides than comet Elenin ever will."

– Don Yeomans, NASA / JPL

And as far as the effect from Elenin’s magnetic field goes… well, there is no effect. Elenin, like all comets, doesn’t have a magnetic field. Not much else to say there.

But the claims surrounding Elenin have gone much further toward the absurd. That it’s going to encounter another object and change course to one that will cause it to impact Earth, or that it’s not a comet at all but actually a planet – Nibiru, perhaps? – and is on a collision course with our own. Or (and I particularly like this one) that alien spaceships are trailing Elenin in such a way as to remain undetected until it’s too late and then they’ll take over Earth, stealing our water and natural resources and turning us all into slaves and/or space munchies… or however the stories go. (Of course the government and NASA and Al Gore and Al Gore’s hamster are all in cahoots and are withholding this information from the rest of us. That’s a given.) These stories are all just that – stories – and have not a shred of science to them, other than a heaping dose of science fiction.

"We live in nervous times, and conspiracy theories and predictions of disaster are more popular than ever. I like to use the word cosmophobia for this growing fear of astronomical objects and phenomena, which periodically runs amuck on the Internet. Ironically, in pre-scientific times, comets were often thought to be harbingers of disaster, mostly because they seemed to arrive unpredictably – unlike the movements of the planets and stars, which could be tracked on a daily and yearly basis."

– David Morrison, planetary astronomer and senior scientist at NASA’s Ames Research Center

The bottom line is this: Comet C/2010 X1 Elenin is coming, and it will pass by Earth at an extremely safe distance – 100 times the distance from Earth to the Moon. It will not be changing direction between now and then, it will not exert any gravitational effect on Earth, its magnetic field is nonexistent and there are no Star Destroyers cruising in its wake. The biggest effect it will have on Earth is what we are able to learn about it as it passes – after all, it is a visitor from the far reaches of our solar system and we won’t be seeing it again for a very, very long time.

I’m sure we’ll have found something else to be worried about long before then.

"This intrepid little traveler will offer astronomers a chance to study a relatively young comet that came here from well beyond our solar system’s planetary region. After a short while, it will be headed back out again, and we will not see or hear from Elenin for thousands of years. That’s pretty cool."

– Don Yeomans

Comet Elenin Update and November 2011 Asteroid's Close Approach

 

© 2011 by Linda Moulton Howe

Updated with MP3 audio in Interview.

 

“ ... there is no evidence for a Planet X. There is no evidence for Nibiru.
 Neither one of them exist. So, there is absolutely nothing to be
concerned about with regard to Comet Elenin.”

- Don Yeomans, Ph.D., Manager, Near-Earth Object (NEO) Program,
NASA Jet Propulsion Lab, Pasadena, California

 


On August 6, 2011, NASA's Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory
 (STEREO) spacecraft used its wide angle HI-2 camera with a green filter
to image small Comet Elenin. Its closest approach to Earth is on
October 16, 2011, at 22 million miles (35 million km) - too far to have
 any appreciable effect on our planet. See STEREO website.

 
 
August 26, 2011   Pasadena, California - Comet Elenin is a long-period comet discovered by Russian amateur astronomer Leonid Elenin eight months ago on December 10, 2010. Comet Elenin will make its closest approach to the Sun on September 10, 2011, and then a month later on October 16th, Elenin will be closest to Earth at a distance of about 22 million miles, or not much closer than the planet Venus. Those are the facts.
 
Yet, the internet is filled with headlines about Comet Elenin actually being a planet-sized object called “X” or “Nibiru” on a doomsday path to collide with Earth. The name “Nibiru” is derived from the 1976 book, The 12th Planet by Zecharia Sitchin. He hypothesized that an ancient Sumerian cuneiform tablet described our solar system with twelve planets, but the twelfth planet was on a severe elliptical path in which it orbited our sun only once every thirty-six hundred years. It is not clear why small Comet Elenin has been picked out by apocalypse mongers, but all the misinformation is frustrating to astronomers and the manager of NASA/JPL's Near-Earth Object (NEO) program in Pasadena, California.

Since 1998, Don Yeomans, Ph.D., has been overseeing the NASA/JPL efforts to locate all objects such as asteroids in our solar system that are a kilometer or larger - big sizes that could do a lot of damage to Earth in a collision. So far, he and his team have found 90% of those. Now he is looking for smaller objects that could impact Earth. Comet Elenin, he insists, is never going to collide with Earth.

Don Yeomans, Ph.D., Manager, Near-Earth Object (NEO) Program, NASA Jet Propulsion Lab, Pasadena, California:  “Comet Elenin is rather a modest comet. I don’t know why it’s getting such plug in the internet. It’s not a particularly bright comet. It will barely, if at all, be visible to the naked eye in its closest approach. It’s not even making that close of an approach! So, it’s a very modest-sized comet, perhaps a mile in diameter in terms of its solid portion. It’s not putting out a lot of gas and dust. It’s not going to be spectacular. It’s not going to be impressive. It’s not getting close to the earth. So, it’s just a very modest, wimpy, little comet.
 
DO YOU AT THE NEAR-EARTH OBJECT PROGRAM GET QUESTIONS FROM THE GENERAL AUDIENCE ABOUT THIS COMET AND WHY PEOPLE ARE ASSOCIATING IT WITH THIS NIBIRU PLANET IDEA?
 
Yes, we do get questions like that and we try to address them in a sober manner and try to explain to these folks that there is no evidence for a Planet X. There is no evidence for Nibiru. Neither one of them exist. So, there is absolutely nothing to be concerned about with regard to Comet Elenin.
 
WOULD IT BE POSSIBLE IN 2011 FOR ANY PLANET-SIZED OBJECT TO SNEAK UP ON THE SOLAR SYSTEM WITHOUT ASTRONOMERS KNOWING?
 
(laughs)  An object the size of a planet would have been visible long ago, and it’s not. Its affect on the other planets would have been noticed long ago, and they are not. So there is no evidence whatsoever about a planet sneaking up on the Earth. It is just not possible and there is no evidence for it. And just because people are saying these things on the internet does not make it true. In terms of Nibiru and Planet X and a planet sneaking up on the Earth, there is NO evidence!
 
RIGHT. WHERE IS COMET ELENIN AS WE SPEAK IN MID-AUGUST 2011?
 
Well, the comet is currently headed to its closest approach to the sun, or perihelion, on September 10, 2011. As observed from the Earth, it is in the daylight sky so it can’t be observed with ground based optical telescopes. It will remain unobservable until about the first week in October when it will be coming out from behind the sun and observable possibly to the naked eye, but probably not. After the first week in October 2011, Comet Elenin will be observable with ground based telescopes again. It will reach its closest Earth-based approach on October 16th.
 
AT THAT POINT, HOW FAR WILL IT BE FROM EARTH?
 
About 22 million miles, so it’s not particularly close.
 

On August 6, 2011, NASA's Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory
 (STEREO) spacecraft used its wide angle HI-2 camera with a green filter
to image small Comet Elenin. Its closest approach to Earth is on
October 16, 2011, at 22 million miles (35 million km) - too far to have
 any appreciable effect on our planet. See STEREO website.

IS THE GREEN COLOR (IN IMAGES) TRUE TO THE COLOR OF THE COMET?
 
No, that’s taken in a spectral region with a green filter. The comet to the naked eye would look whitish because of the reflected sunlight from the dust particles emitted by the comet.
 
WHAT FILTER MAKES IT LOOK THE GREENISH COLOR?
 
It’s looking for molecular transitions to see what the comet is made of.
 
THAT WOULD TIE IN TO LEONID ELENIN AT HIS SPACEORB.COM WEBSITE LAST WEEK. HE HAD A TITLE , ‘COMET SMELLS LIKE BITTER ALMONDS.’ HIS ARTICLE WENT INTO HYDROGEN CYANIDE BEING ONE OF THE CHEMICAL CONSTITUENTS OF COMET ELENIN.
 
Hydrogen cyanide is a minor constituent of many comets. Most comets are made of primarily water ice and embedded dust particles. After water ice, you have carbon dioxide – or dry ice. It usually is the second most abundant material. Then you have carbon monoxide. You have hydrogen sulfide occasionally. Methane, ammonia.
 
WOULD THE COMET SMELL LIKE BITTER ALMONDS?
 
Well, if some of that material were brought back, yes.
 
BECAUSE IT’S HYDROGEN CYANIDE.
 
Because there is some hydrogen cyanide there.
 
WHEN IT REACHES ITS CLOSEST POINT, WHAT HAPPENS TO COMET ELENIN AFTER THAT?
 
After it passes its closest point to the sun on September 10, 2011, then it heads back out on a long trip into the outer solar system in an orbit that has an orbital period of some 11,570 years – so it will be another 11,570 years before we on Earth see it again.
 
It is interesting from a scientific point of view because it is a new comet from the Oort cloud at the very edge of our solar system. It does retain a lot of the volatile ices that do not appear on comets that have been around the sun several times. But Comet Elenin poses no threat to the Earth. In fact, it’s a rather modest, second rate comet.
 
 
 
2005 YU55 Coming Much Closer to Earth
 
“At one time we had classified 2005 YU55 as a potential threat.
 After incorporating the April 2011 data from Arecibo radar,
 we were able to rule Earth impacts out entirely for the next 100 years.”

- Steve Chesley, JPL's Near-Earth Object Program Office


Near-Earth asteroid 2005 YU55 was “imaged” by the Arecibo Radar
 Telescope in Puerto Rico on April 19, 2011, about 1.5 million miles from Earth.
 The rocky asteroid is spherical and about 1,300 feet (400 meters) wide. Data
collected allowed the Near-Earth Object program at NASA's Jet Propulsion
Laboratory to refine the space rock's orbit, allowing scientists to rule out any
 possibility of an Earth impact for the next 100 years. Image courtesy NASA.
 
 
 
COULD YOU DESCRIBE WHAT YOU ARE CONCENTRATING ON NOW IN MID-2011 IN THE NEAR-EARTH OBJECT PROGRAM?
 
One of the things we are looking at is an asteroid that will get close to the Earth in mid-November. So we’re excited about that one.
 
HOW CLOSE WILL IT COME?
 
It’s going to get within 8/10ths of the distance from Earth to the Moon.
 
THAT’S 203,000 MILES FROM EARTH. HOW BIG IS IT?
 
It’s 400 meters in diameter ( 1,312 feet). For a near-Earth asteroid, that is quite big. And the fact that it is getting close and will be easily observable for optical telescopes and spectroscopes and especially the radars will be able to back out a shape model for this thing down to a spatial resolution of about four meters. So, it’s going to be quite an extraordinary event.
 
SO YOU WILL BE ABLE WITH RADAR TO DRAW OR ILLUSTRATE THE EXACT SHAPE.
 
Exactly, yes! So it is sort of like having a spacecraft fly by and then take pictures. We’re going to get an image without the spacecraft just using the radar because the object is getting close enough so the radar signal is really quite strong.
 
WHAT DO YOU CALL THIS ASTEROID?
 
It’s called 2005 YU 55.
 
THE DATE WHEN IT IS CLOSEST?
 
Is November 8, 2011.
 
IS THERE A TIME ASSIGNED WHEN IT IS CLOSEST?
 
OK, it’s November 8, 2011, at 23:28 Greenwich.
 
WHAT DAMAGE COULD SOMETHING 400 METERS WIDE – THAT’S ABOUT ¼ MILE – WHAT COULD THAT DO IN A DIRECT IMPACT ON EARTH?
 
First of all, this object cannot hit the Earth. But if something that size were to hit the Earth, it would cause regional devastation. It would not be an extinction event like the event that took out the dinosaurs, but it would be a fairly major regional devastation wherever it hit. Or if it hit in the ocean, which seems likely, there would be tsunamis on the ocean rims.
 
 
 
Any Large Objects Out There
 On Collision Path with Earth?
 

Illustration of  potential threat of large asteroid headed for Earth by NASA.
 

NASA illustration of large asteroid impacting Earth water.
 
WHAT DO YOU PERSONALLY FEEL IS THE LIKELIHOOD OF A LARGE ASTEROID OR COMET HAVING A DIRECT IMPACT ON THE EARTH IN THE NEXT 25 TO 50 YEARS?
 
In terms of large objects that might hit, we don’t know of any. As you get to larger and larger objects, there is fewer and fewer of them. When you get smaller and smaller objects, there are more and more of them, so any impacts in the future are almost certainly going to be small ones because there are a lot more of them. You have to get up to around 30 meters or diameter before the object can do ground damage. So the size of the next one that is likely to do ground damage, it is probably on the order of 30 meters.
 
IF YOU ALL AT THE NEAR-EARTH OBJECT PROGRAM IN PASADENA DETECTED ANY OBJECT COMING IN TOWARD EARTH FOR IMPACT THAT WAS IN THE 30-METERS-DIAMETER SIZE RANGE, IS THERE ANY TECHNOLOGY IN THE NEXT TWO TO FIVE DECADES THAT MIGHT BE ABLE TO DEAL WITH AN INCOMING OBJECT THAT SIZE?
 
If you find it soon enough – if you have enough time to prepare – there are technologies that can be used to deflect it. I mean, you could run into it, for example, with a spacecraft as we did with running into Comet Tempel 1 several years ago with the Deep Impact spacecraft.
 


Comet Tempel 1 photographed by the NASA high-resolution camera on the flyby
 spacecraft only 67 seconds after the Deep Impact probe deliberately crashed
 into the comet that shows ridges, scalloped edges and possibly impact craters.

 
[ Editor’s Note:  Wikipedia:  “Tempel 1 is  a periodic comet discovered by Wilhelm Tempel in 1867. It currently completes an orbit of the sun every 5.5 years. Tempel 1 was the target of the Deep Impact space mission, which photographed a deliberate high-speed impact upon the comet in 2005. The impact was photographed by the flyby space probe, which recorded a bright spray from the impact site. The impact was also observed by earthbound and space telescopes, which recorded a brightening of several magnitudes. The probe's spectrometer instrument detected dust particles finer than human hair, and discovered the presence of silicates, carbonates, smectite, metal sulfides such as fool's gold, amorphous carbon and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons.]
 
 
 
So, the technology exists to run into these objects and slow them down. On the other hand, if it is only 30 meters and it were to hit in the ocean, we probably would not worry about that. So, it would depend on where it was going to hit. It an inhabited area, or a populated area were threatened, you might evacuate and at the same time, you might mount some kind of campaign to deflect it.
 
WHAT WOULD BE THE ADVANCE IN TIME THAT YOU THINK YOU MIGHT KNOW IF SOMETHING 30 METERS IN DIAMETER WERE HEADED TOWARDS EARTH? WOULD YOU HAVE ENOUGH ADVANCE WARNING IF EVACUATION WERE WARRANTED?
 
Well, that’s the goal. That said, we haven’t discovered but a fraction of that total population , so we have a long way to go and keep track of them. The initial NASA program was designed to find the big ones because they could cause global extinction events. We’ve found about 90% of the large ones – a kilometer and larger already and none of them represent a threat. Now the goal is to find 90% of the 140 meter-sized objects and larger and we are making good progress on that. And then probably the next goal would be to find 90% of the 30-meter size objects and larger. But that’s going to take some time and some better instrumentation.
 
IF IT WERE 30 METERS INSTEAD OF A KILOMETER, YOU MIGHT HAVE LESS TIME FOR WARNING THE EARTH?
 
That’s true, that’s true! For small objects, you would likely find them in a few weeks in advance of an impact, but they are best observed and most easily found when they are already close to Earth because they are so small. The larger ones that happen much less frequently are far more dangerous because they can do far more damage.
 
BUT YOU SO FAR THINK YOU HAVE IDENTIFIED WHERE MOST OF THOSE ARE?
 
Right.
 
WE TRACK THOSE WITH WHAT KINDS OF INSTRUMENTS?
 
With ground based optical telescopes.
 
IS THAT LIKE A CONSTANT OBSERVATION AND THE ORBITAL MECHANICS OF THEM ARE WELL KNOWN?
 
That’s correct, yes.
 
THAT’S WHY WE DON’T HAVE TO WORRY?
 
Exactly! We found 90% of the larger ones and none of them represent a threat, so in some sense we have reduced the risk – the unknown risk – for those objects. Now we’re moving on to the smaller objects that might pose a potential problem in the future.”
 
 
 
Slim Chance Asteroid 99942 Apophis
Could Hit Earth in 2036
 

Approximate path of impact risk for Asteroid 99942 Apophis in 2036.
 Illustration by Paul Salazar Foundation.
 There is a 46-million-ton space rock out there that is 1,600-feet-wide and expected to pass Earth in 2029. Then depending upon gravitational conditions, the asteroid could turn back on itself seven years later in 2036 and hit Earth. NASA calculates that there's only a 1 in 250,000 chance that could happen. But Chinese scientists from Beijing's Tsinghua University want to make certain asteroid Apophis [uh-PUH-fuss] won't have any chance to hit Earth. They want to deflect the asteroid by smashing a solar sail into it. The European Space Agency also wants to send two spacecraft to the asteroid - one to smash into it while the other craft monitors the impact.
