On U.S. Thanksgiving Day, Comet ISON survived perihelion – its closest approach to the sun. Initial observations from NASA scientists were that ISON did not survive perihelion as it disappeared into the sun’s shadow. Unexpectedly, fresh astronomical data on the evening of November 28, showed Comet ISON surviving, or at least some of it, as most of its mass may have been lost to the sun. According to Professor Tim O’Brien from the University of Manchester’s Jodrell Bank Observatory: “To all intents and purposes it looked like it had gone, and then amazingly this thing appears out the other side,” Like the proverbial Phoenix, ISON had arisen from the dead after its close solar encounter. According to NASA, Comet ISON continues “a history of surprising behavior” as it “appeared on the other side of the sun … despite not having been seen in observations during its closest approach to the sun.”
Comet ISON will now move back out of the solar system and fly by the Earth at a distance of 40 million miles on December 26, which would still be Christmas Day in parts of the world. ISON may yet put on a spectacular fireworks display living up to the early hopes of astronomers that it would be the “comet of the century.” However, that’s not all there is to ISON according to some observers. ISON is not a natural comet at all, but an object deliberately directed to move along its observed orbit; or, even more surprisingly, an artificially created object.
NASA has provided a series of gif files to show how Comet ISON approached the sun, and surprisingly emerged from its perihelion on Thanksgiving evening.
NASA has officially acknowledged that ISON is behaving in unexpected ways. So is it really just a comet?
According to Richard Hoagland, science advisor on the popular Coast to Coast AM radio show, ISON is following an orbital trajectory that has been artificially created. Hoagland, gave an update on ISON in the early morning hours of Thanksgiving Day which was summarized as follows:
Somebody using the technology of the “secret space program” has maneuvered Comet ISON into its precise orbit for “symbolic, ritual, and celebratory purposes,” as a kind of foreshadowing of amazing announcements or events here on Earth…
For Hoagland, it’s no accident that Comet ISON makes its closest approaches to the sun and earth respectively on U.S. Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. ISON’s creators have chosen these dates to make possible a chain of global events that fulfill a secret agenda that Hoagland has described at length in his most recent book, Dark Mission: The Secret History of NASA.
Even more controversial are the claims of an individual called Tolec, who claims to be in communications with a group of extraterrestrials from the Andromeda constellation and other star systems. According to Tolec, Comet ISON is actually an extraterrestrial mothership. In a November 28 update on his blogsite, he wrote:
The biosphere – Xanterexx [called by the news media: “comet Ison”] is in fact the “Blue Star Kachina”. It signifies the coming of major changes to this planet, the harbinger of change & ‘open first contact ‘
If Tolec is correct, then we can expect more than big fireworks when Comet ISON makes its flyby of the Earth on December 26. A simulation of ISON’s trajectory is available here.
According to both Hoagland and Tolec, Comet ISON is a harbinger of planetary wide changes that we can expect to shortly witness. On the other hand, NASA astronomers claim that ISON is nothing more than a naturally formed comet that has shed most of its mass during its perihelion. With its surprising behavior and and Phoenix-like resurrection, ISON may yet turn out to be the “comet of the century”. One thing that most can agree upon is that ISON’s flyby of the Earth around Christmas Day will raise eyebrows as many peer skyward to observe and contemplate this surprising comet or artificially designed object, and its planetary significance.
