Algumas notas de astrónomos amadores...
"On Jan 14th, it hits perillion--and will be between the sun and the earth. If the sun reacts in a fasion similar to comet neat of Feb 18, 2003--activity of the sun will be high.
This comes just before or during an Earth Sun Mars Pluto Galactic Center alignment on the 15th, and and Earth, Sun, Venus, Neptune alignment on the 18th. Maybe nothing will happen--or it could be quite "spectacular."
Will the comet hit earth? Most likely not, although we may see some "debris." What always interests me about comets is that the large ones are ususally discovered by amatuers--which I find "interesting."
As far as I know, McNaught is a blue comet. (it is not red as some claim--all photos taken of things near sunrise/sunset get a reddish tint.)
Didn't the Sun send a big Solar Flare towards Neat when it passed the Sun last time ?
If this happens with the McNaught Comet, Earth could be in the firing line.
Plus if you take into account the 'Electrical Universe Theory'. And that Comet's tails point away from the Sun as they whip around it.
The Earth will be in the 'Firing Line' of the tail as well. Which I understand to be energy coming IN towards the Sun from the Solar System's overall charged 'electrical energy'. (that is why the Comet's tails always point away from the Sun as the Comets do their rounds)"
Continuamos num "blackout" informativo por parte dos jornais tugas (parece que só a RTP2 falou nisto ontem no Telejornal...que pouca gente vê)
Naaa ... a comunicação social ainda não disse nada porque o cometa ainda é visível no HN, a partir de amanhã como já não é vísivel vai dar no telejornal "Espectacular cometa vísivel desde o Hemisfério Sul - Cometa mais brilhante dos últimos 30 anos (...) "
