Quote:"The footage was captured by NASA’s Solar & Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) on May 10 and May 11 and posted to NASA Goddard’s Flickr page. It shows what is believed to be a comet from the Kreutz family hurtling into the Sun. The Kreutz family of objects is believed to have originated from a single large comet that came apart centuries ago. The Kreutz comets were discovered by amateur astronomer Sergey Shrupakov.
The Sun itself is obscured in the video and represented by a white circle. According to NASA, the sun is blocked by a red disc so that "faint structures in the Sun’s corona can be discerned." Consequently, the actual impact of the comet can’t bee seen.
What appears to be an explosion caused by the impact is actually a coincidental coronal mass ejection which occured just as the comet was approaching the Sun. Scientists have not yet found a connection between these mass ejections and comet impacts."

excellent catch jr ,like a person wrote on youtubeThis must have been a super massive comet in order to reach the surface of the Sun without disintegrating! cheers.gifcheers.gif

Agreed. Very cool! cheers.gif

I'd agree that it was massive. Just compare the size to the sun.

Thanks GH & Kreeper, I thought it was cool also, but like Octo commented, the timing of that solar flare was too much to be coincidence.
You're right GH, that comet held together right until it hit the Sun, I'm glad that wasn't closer to Earth, talk about some gravity anomalies and earthquakes! damned.gif

Quote:by the way this comet had a companion ... something else NASA claims cannot happen with a gravitationally minimal little ice ball comet ... the solution ... this comet had some serious mass to hold the companion in tow

Good find Yankees! cheers.gif

Yes it had some serious mass, I would think after Comet Holmes popped and became the largest object in our solar system the guys in the think tanks would have had to rethink the dirty iceball theory.

Obviously some are made of some pretty exotic matter, scientists can play pretendsies and claim to know this or that, but they have more than once demonstrated they don't really have a clue about comets.

MSM is too busy waiting for corporate and/or government approval on everything to actually report anything in a timely fashion. MSM is dead in the water, people are realizing all that indoctrination is not necessary, ğck submitting to those lies, distortions and half truths.
