Celestial And enter the comet....

Comets have atmosphere . . .?
The rocky, icy core is likely only a few miles across?

I believe we are entering a period of dark ages where science has been nullified and myth and fear rule the populous.
Yes...science has been beneficial to mankind(sarc)

Makes me rethink why the .gov is recommending everyone wear masks ..... gaseous tail? Does our orbit transit through the tail?

Well, I wouldn’t call what comets have an “atmosphere” exactly. Comets are mostly frozen gasses. As they near a star, the gasses thaw and liquify, then “blow off”, which is the tail we see. A comet doesn’t have enough gravity to hold an atmosphere.

So the earth goes through the tail of the comet and we’re are all bombarded with weird green space gas and then, finally the dead will walk!? And maybe if we’re lucky all of our electronics will try to kill us. It’s a mix between The Night of the comet and Maximum Overdrive!! The doom possibilities are endless!

So, are you disputing the notion that a comet's nucleus is only a few miles across, or that comets can (temporarily) have an atmosphere?

yes. Comets do not have atmosphere. They do not have the gravity to hold atmosphere. They have a corona.
They recent scientific missions to comets also show the surprising evidence of a lack of an icy nucleus.
The corona is likely the result in the difference in electric potential between the Sun and the comet - although that is also theoretical.

And only 19 years late too, all riiiiiiiiight.
The Anunnaki arrive years before the planet does. The Giza pyramid complex has encoded a star configuration showing the year 2012.

Two interesting articles to read...


Multitude of Asteroids To Pass Near Earth Before Passover May Presage Star of Jacob’s Arrival

“Before the great and terrible day of Hashem comes,* I will set portents in the sky and on earth: Blood and fire and pillars of smoke;” Joel 3:3 (The Israel Bible™)

A Mt. Everest Sized Asteroid is About to Whiz by Earth: Part of ‘Nibiru’ Explains Expert


, whose films on Nibiru have garnered hundreds of thousands of views, stated simply, that all of the events described in Biblical prophecy are suddenly appearing at a dizzying rate.

“Everything is connected and everything was expected by the prophets,” Ovadia said to Breaking Israel News. “Some people believe in the Bible and operate on a faith-based agenda but others go against that and try to enforce their own anti-Bible agenda.”

Ovadia referred to Nibiru, a star that will appear in the end of days that will wreak havoc but not destroy the world.

“As Nibiru approaches, more asteroids will appear,” Ovadia said. “Nibiru is described in Jewish sources as a star, not as an asteroid. But as it approaches, it pushes asteroids ahead of it like a ship pushes water in front of it.”

Ovadia noted that these celestial phenomena will be accompanied by other catastrophes; earthquakes, plagues, volcanoes, and even disease. This intensive period will spare no one. He noted that the coronavirus pandemic is spreading panic among the aspects of society that are most insulated from its effects.

Ovadia believes the final series of events culminating in the arrival of the Messiah has already begun.

See...that proves it.

Gotta disagree on several counts. First, an object in space does not need to have enough gravity to maintain a permanent atmosphere to have an atmosphere. The gas and dust surrounding a comet nucleus, even though it is constantly being stripped away by the solar wind, is still an atmosphere of a sort. Second, the cloud of gas and dust surrounding the comet's nucleus (get to that in a sec) is properly called a "Coma" not a "corona". Stars have coronas. Third, there is absolutely evidence of a solid nucleus, as we've actually sent a probe to a comet and taken pictures of it.

you can disagree all you want . . . does not make you right . . . nor does it require me to teach.

Maybe you should get down off of that high horse and check with NASA first:

Explanation: The atmosphere of a comet comes and goes. Approaching the sun, it swells as material from the icy cometary nucleus is warmed and evaporated by increasing sunlight. Immense but tenuous and fleeting, the inner atmosphere or inner "coma" of comet Hyakutake is seen in this false color picture.


Also note the term "coma", rather than corona.

As to the icy nuclei of comets, if you're too lazy to actually do research rather than spout internet conspiracy nonsense, I'm not going to go to the effort of posting examples of the many many actual pictures of comet nuclei we have.

A comet 5 times the diameter of Jupiter would probably have the gravity for an atmosphere.

Neither here nor there.
There would need to be an opposing gavitational force to put it away from the sun or it would need to have a collision. Where is it right now?
wait isn't this the comet that was discussed last year that the gov'ts of the world wants to see if they can change it's trajectory?
