... From: Pensée Vol. 3 No 3: (Fall 1973) "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered V" Home¦ Issue Contents Comets And Catastrophes Kohoutek's visit Urey on cometary cataclysms Comets and oil formation Vsekhsvyatskii's views on the origin of comets During the latter half of January, 1974, in the evening sky, a comet will emerge from behind the sun. Named Kohoutek after its discoverer, this comet --after first passing 14 million miles from the sun --will approach within about 75 million miles of the earth in mid-January. Earlier, in December, it may be visible in the morning sky, and during both months there is a chance it will be visible during daylight hours. While comets tend to be unpredictable, especially so far as their brightness goes, the claims for Comet Kohoutek have been optimistic. Brian G. Marsden, astronomer and director of the Central Bureau for Astronomical Telegrams, Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory, told us: "There's every possibility that this could be the best comet of the century. It is unprecedented that we have known about a potentially bright ...

32. Deluge and Comet [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... Deluge and Comet The idea that a comet heralded the Deluge was not new with William Whiston: it is found in several earlier authors, the so-called cometographers and chronologists of the seventeenth century. But they only described the appearance of the comet at the time of the Deluge as a matter of fact, and did not deduce any theory from it. No causal relation was seen: it was more in the nature of a coincidence. New in Whiston was the identification of the comet of 1680 as the comet of the Deluge, and the perturbatory effects on the position and motion of our planet, ascribed by him to the activities of the comet; finally, his general theory that the Earth itself was once a comet. The author whom Whiston names as his source was J. Hevelius, whose Cometographia was published in 1668. Apparently Whiston did not go further back to the sources of Hevelius: to Abraham Rockenbach (15 -16 ), Seth Calvisius (1556-1615), Henricus Ecstormius, Christopher Helvicus (1581-1617) and David Herlicius (1557-1636). ...

The photographic evidence of electrical hot spots on Wild 2 now takes on much greater significance. Among the most stunning pictures returned by the Deep Impact mission was a close-up view of Comet Tempel 1 showing stark geology punctuated by bright spots on the surface. We are reminded of the photos of comet Wild 2 taken by the spacecraft Stardust, which revealed small bright spots that received virtually no attention from NASA investigators. In our Picture of the Day for August 5, 2004, we drew attention to these bright spots and suggested an electrical interpretation. Several of these bright spots are seen in ...

But in an electric universe such events deserve a second look. The comet NEAT was discovered November 2002 by NASA's Near Earth Asteroid Tracking (NEAT) program. As the comet moved toward “perihelion”, its closest approach to the Sun, astronomers were not sure it would survive. The explosive destruction of Comet Linear three years earlier, at nine times NEAT ’ s distance from the Sun, underscored the danger to comets from such a close passage around the Sun. The Sun ’ s glare ...

... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1994 No 2 (Dec 1994) Home¦ Issue Contents Monitor Special Death of a Comet: Shoemaker-Levy 9 Hits Jupiter Well, after all the speculation, the fragments of Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 did collide with Jupiter during the week of 16th-22nd July 1994. Now everyone knows that in our safe, stable Solar System, worlds can and do collide- and when they do the results are pretty spectacular. According to the Baltimore Evening Sun (15th July), statistically a repeat of the 1908 Tunguska explosion is likely in the next several hundred years. Chandra Wickramasinghe of the University of Wales at Cardiff predicted that the appearance of Jupiter would be changed by clouds of extremely fine dust (New Scientist, 25th June 1994). However amidst all the 'gee whiz, wow!', 'scientists predict...' and 'astronomers calculate that...' reports and the pretty computer graphics showing artists' impressions of what might happen, it was quite difficult to extract hard information about what really happened. According to Heidi ...

... From: SIS Chronology& Catastrophism Review 1991 (Vol XIII) Home¦ Issue Contents Chiron: Giant Comet, Agent of Catastrophe? sources: New Scientist 25.8.90, pp. 48-51 Nature 348 (1990), pp. 132-136 The object Chiron was first recognised in 1977. It has an elongated orbit between those of Saturn and Uranus, actually intersecting that of Saturn, and for some years there was debate as to whether Chiron was an asteroid or a comet. If it were an asteroid it would be the farthest out of those currently known and much more extreme even than asteroid Hidalgo, whose orbit lies between the asteroid belt and Saturn. How had it got there? Only 200 kilometres in diameter, Chiron would be a miniscule planet, but quite large as asteroids go (only 20 or 30 are known to be larger) and simply enormous as a comet- the largest known. Confirmation that Chiron was, indeed, a large comet came in the years 1987-1989 with increased brightness of the object and the development of a fuzzy coma of at ...

One of the observations leading to the dirty snowball theory of comets was that most of the periodic comets begin to grow tails at about the same distance from the Sun: between Jupiter and Mars. The determining factor was thought to be the distance at which the comet became hot enough for water and other volatile substances to evaporate into space, creating the coma, or "head," and tail of the comet. But not every comet obeys even this tenuous "dirty snowball" criterion. Hale-Bopp in particular broke many of the rules. In the photo ...

Beside it is a microscopic view of an EDM (electrical discharge machined) surface. Note the flat-floored depressions with steep scalloped walls and terracing. The small white spots on the comet can then be reasonably identified as the active cathode arcs that produce the cometary jets. home pic of the day archive subject index abstract archive Links: Holoscience Electric Cosmos The Universe Plasma Cosmology Society for Interdisciplinary Studies educational resources Aeon Journal Sep 23, 2005 Comets: The Loose Thread Spacecraft have now visited four comets. What they found contradicts what was expected and falsifies accepted comet theory. But that theory is woven with every other astronomical theory into a cosmology that defines the universe as we know it. The fall of comet theory will inevitably bring us a new and different universe. Comets are giving accepted comet theory a hard time. Close-up images of comet nuclei from spacecraft have contradicted about ...
