This is unlike any comet I've ever seen before, beyond my wildest expectations! Golly-gosh!

Here's the nagging question in my mind: Is C/2006 P1 (McNaught) a comet, or a rogue planet [um...Planet-Rex], or WHAT? [proto-planet]

Keep coming back, I'll be updating for the next week, if I survive, sigh...



"Please note that while we do have "real time" data from SOHO/LASCO, we do not have continuous, uninterrupted 24hr contact with the spacecraft. This means that there will be periods where the images are not updating. These periods typically last only a couple of hours, but sometimes our ageing data processing machines do crash and a technician has to manually restart the process. At weekends this can take time, so please be patient with us! You can always check the spacecraft contact schedule to see when the planned data gaps will occur."

On 01/13/06 the SOHO Spacecraft is 11 years 11 months and 11 days old

DAYTIME COMET: Comet McNaught is now visible in broad daylight. This trick is best performed around local noon: Go outside and stand in the shadow of a building. Face south. The comet lies about six degrees to the left of the sun.

PERTH: The 10km wide comet was discovered by Australian astronomer Rob McNaught at Siding Spring Observatory, in NSW, in August 2006. 12 per cent brighter than the sighting in 1995 of the Hale-Bopp Comet but still 25 times fainter than 1965's Ikeya-Seki Comet. [unsure of those stats, can't locate any official publication other than NASA who does not declare physical parameters]

Hey Kent, where did that other comet come from. I am pulling up starry nite and shows an unnamed comet at RA(J/2000) RA 2 hrs 28.47m and DEC 9 degrees 16.117' at 2.37 magnitude. about 0.881 au. We cant see it due to the snow storm. Any one seen it yet?  

Someone needs to take a look at the path on this comet, according to starry nite it is really close to us. I just updated the files and now shows another untitled comet. Here is the screen shot. The white dot on the tan line is earth. this comet comes really close. Maybe I am reading it wrong. Can someone else make any sense..

Check SWAN  [been seeing something there close to McNaught to the south next to the tip]

A large comet....and now a very strong Earth quake.....8.3......every seismic station around the world has reached saturation levels.

Not that it might have a thing in the world to do with the comet - but I caught a glimpse of the Live seismic Feed on the 13th......almost every monitor looked like these. It had calmed back down when I looked yesterday.

My husband, a native elder, sensed the comet last evening and went to the window. He called me to see it and I almost panicked! It was between two mountains and looked so large that I thought it was Niburu and we had only days left to prepare for 'whatever'. This morning, with clear skies, the whole family saw it for some time. It was amazing (looked huge still) and not so ominous as last night. I must say, though, it does portend many changes in this paradigm, we feel. As natives we rarely give in to fear but as a mother, I panic at the thought of some of my children being in large cities at this time.

Good morning - If your sleuths cannot do this I don't know who can. Last night on Coast toCoast a caller gave the name of a website. Clinton and the elder Bush apparently have a warning website for 2007, it's an org. They are basically urging people to PREPARE. I also have emergency tests for L.A. area used to be once a week now is 8 times a day. Please get your sleuths to find out what the name of the website is (couldn't remember this morning) and what is going on.

This?  HEWS

Here's a pic i just took of the comet from the west side of Manhattan, NYC on the hudson river. it's naked eye viewable, even with all of New York City's lights!

Hey Kent, Just called the Coonabarabran Observatory in Australia and they turned me on to this website by Robert McNaught talking about the comet.

ALERT: Please save the C3 images during the comet passage on SOHO. Your own personal archive is a good idea because of this historical event. Some are beginning to think that a comet this large might even be called a rogue planet!

These are the raw Navy images: C3,  Processed images C3, LASCO GermanyFTP directory 2 3,  latest mpg, gif movie,  Notes  Let's hope that NASA doesn't pull the plug.  

Stuff is happening right now and I am on duty. I need help here. This is a 24 hour round the clock effort and upon SOHO passage on the 12th I will need to capture frame by frame in case the feed is disrupted which often happens for whatever reason.--Kent
