ISON - tomorrow it will slingshot around the Sun


Recommended Posts

So, our little ISON comet is diving into the Sun and if it survive the slingshot around it (well, the tidal forces will be enormous and if it survive, then we know that this one is from pretty solid material, not some loose group of rocks and ice or similar weak things), then we shall see a beautifull show, when it will depart to outher space from the Sun ;)

Today the ISON enter the SOHO satelite, monitoring Sun (yes, this behing the clone on the arm from top-right to center), view ange:

SOHO 1418 ISON diving in2

I quess I did not need to tell, witch one is the ISON, do I? :)

And it approaching the Sun with amazing speed. Actuall images you can find there:http://sohowww.nascom.nasa.gov/data/realtime/c3/512/

Beautifull animation from the SOHO frames bring us the Suspicious0bservers on YouTube today:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DMGUbuZjyt8

and even back in 20.11. we seen ISON as little speck (compared to the Earth and Mercury) on images from the Stereo satelite:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HN8RxE0WHQA

So, I hope you are excited as I'm to look at the show, that is unfolding right now as we speak ;)

Looks like that just like the comet Lovejoy in 2011:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zh3Wju3qabE

the comet ISON make it and it is moving far from the Sun and starting to brighten up back again, just like Lovejoy:

ISON made it thru

...and soon there will be much better quality images that these almost realtime previews. It will look like this:

Definitively it is a great show and nice drama, when some proclamed that the comet is dead However... ISON is back up in full swing :D

Remember Lovejoy? Check this out:

(you cannot tell me, witch speck of dust is the comet Lovejoy, right? Yet still no talks about Lovejoy died, lol)

Check the video!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zh3Wju3qabE

She also dimmed out pretty much near the Sun and brighten up only when it was at some distance from it. Therefore the same is happening to ISON ;) In fact, ISON is buch brighter already...!

She made it, guys. Hooray!

    • Hopefully, everyone can get this card before the bots do. Full unboxing of the new Nvidia 3060 Ti Gaming X Trio from MSI below:  
    • Rest assured that no matter if you choose a mainstream Core i5, a high-end Core i7, or the enthusiast Core i9 that you will be getting a very good to excellent processor. All three offer a lot of performance without all that much upfront cost. It just is those who want to get the best, most optimal, option for their needs should put more time, thought, and effort into their decision. So do your homework. Think about what you actually do with your system. Then come to your own conclusions. Not what anyone, including us, tell you what you should be buying. Doing otherwise may result in a rather major disservice to yourself and your next system.   Read the full review below: https://www.realhardwarereviews.com/intel-core-i7-10700k-core-i5-10600k-review/
    • In summary, if you are looking for a good deal, do not need it to be ‘the fastest’ PCIe 3.0 drive going, and do not plan on hammering it with more than 50% of the free capacity at one time, the Silicon Power UD70 2TB is a good option at a great price. Just understand the target demographics it was built for and the compromises required to hit its low asking price before you track one down.   Read the full review below:  https://www.realhardwarereviews.com/silicon-power-ud70-2tb-review/

    • Thank you! I'm looking through that thread now. It looks like I'll be dropping by Best Buy on my way home tonight to have a look at what they have! They have 10TBs in stock, so maybe I'll grab a couple!
