25.3 00h Comet 96P/Machholz 1 passses perihelion (Period: 5.2 years)
Date: 1/7/02 3:12:22 PM Pacific Standard Time
Not a Solar torpedo
is 96P Machholze, a periodic comet, a spectacular one at that, but expected
to survive passing by the Sun closely (0.12 AU)
EDITOR: Here's what I see:
SO MUCH FOR STARSHIPS...ALMOST...

Hi Kent, Did you notice the 5 'lights?' that show up in the current
comet animation? They seem to show up in one frame (attached). There
seems to be some sort of formation to the group. Is something watching
the comet? ;-)

Hi Kent, I remember reading how only a few days ago you said to look out
for torpedoes... Looks like your 'gut feeling' was right and behold! there
[EDITOR: this current comet 96P
is not an anomalous
torp, although was difficult to determine-such upon

Look what comet did!

SOHO C2 Data cuts out at 14:06. It returns at 18:54. Look whats there.
What crossed during data gap? It's not Venus, because its dissappearing
to right. Venus would be entering from right, so image would get brighter
with time, not dimmer as this is. If comet, tail is all wrong.

EDITOR, RE, KREUTZ COMETS: Aren't
comets in wide elliptical orbits including
Comets? So why then do we see them every cottonpickin' time coming in
almost precisely at 5:00 or 7:00 relative to the camera plane of the SOHO
spacecraft? Hard for me to visualize comets (orbital entities) hanging in
one static region in some kind of weird parallel dance with man's latest
wee solar-satellite also with unique orbit.
FEEDS HAVE BEEN UNRELIABLE, seem to be working now,

DID IT ALL HAPPEN AT ONCE?
'Fireworks Finale' Came First in the Young Universe The deepest views
of the cosmos from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope are yielding clues that
the very first stars may have burst into the universe as brilliantly and
spectacularly as a fireworks finale - except, in this case, the finale came
first - long before Earth, our Sun and the Milky Way Galaxy formed.
