Explosions Notwithstanding, Comet ISON, C/2012 S1, Will NOT Impact Earth, It Is NOT Nibiru.

A recent report that there was a supposed ‘explosion’ on ISON, C/2012 S1, and then the report yesterday of C/2012 X1’s explosion, has again reignited the year-old mumbo-jumbo that ISON is Nibiru and it is set to destroy the Earth.

This is rank garbage.

The supposed ‘explosion’ on ISON was just a normal gas OUTBURST when a new vent opens up on the surface as it gets closer to the Sun. That is par for the course. Think ice-cube in microwave. It was NOT hit by a large asteroid — which, yes, could have changed its course. ISON’s course has not changed.

On November 2, 2013 as it first crosses the Earth’s orbital path it is going to be a long, long, long, long, long … long way away from Earth — like 1.2 TIMES the Earth-Sun distance! Yes, it is going to be 1.203 AU out. That is 111.8 MILLION MILES (and even further out in stupid Kms). So, no danger there.


Then we have perihelion on Thanksgiving Day.

5 scenarios of what can happen then.

It is after that, hopefully on Boxing Day, that we will have the closest fly-by.

But IF it survives perihelion ‘intact’ it will breeze by 39.9 MILLION MILES AWAY.

I talked about the 17P/Holmes explosion as my #1 bullet in “Comets: 101 Facts & Trivia“.


This ‘LINEAR’. C/2012 X1 was discovered after C/2012 S1 — i.e., ISON. ‘S’ vs. ‘X’. This ‘LINEAR’ (and there are a lot of comets discovered by LINEAR) is still in the asteroid belt. It will not make perihelion till February 21, 2014. So it is trailing ISON by 3 months.

Looking good. Very promising. I am still very hopeful.

I never lost faith. I knew that the naysayers where just seeking their 15 minutes of publicity.

Should be naked eye visible by the November 10, 2013, I reckon.

Judging by my book sales curiosity is piquing if not peaking.

I am doing presentations on ISON at the Taylor Community (in Laconia) and at the Alton Public Library during the first week in November. I will post more details soon. So, if you are interested, come to one of those. Would love to see you. I am also speaking at Portsmouth Rotary, but that is after Thanksgiving.
