1-Mile Wide Comet May Slingshot Directly Back Toward Earth at ‘828,000 mph’

On Thanksgiving Day, the 1-mile wide comet ISON will make a close pass by the sun before it starts to “fry and shatter”, accelerating to over 828,000 mph on a slingshot course toward the earth.

(INTELLIHUB) — In what has been labeled by some as an “astronomical cliffhanger”, the 1-mile wide planet killer may or may not head back toward earth in a fifty-fifty battle against odds that has some people in-the-know concerned.

You may have heard all the hype about comet ELININ’s close pass to earth and the massive test that was held with federal and international agencies, including the FCC, on Nov. 9, 2011. Some, like myself, have even speculated that ELININ was some type of military code that corresponded with a prompt by NASA and ultimately the White House under near-earth object (N.E.O.) provisions already set into U.S. law by a previous administration. In fact, even after all of the countless hours of research my team and I have done on the issue, there are still a few things that stand out to me, thangs that just don’t look right. Almost as if ELENIN was a test run for what may be coming. Possibly the newly publicized comet ISON?

Make no mistake,former actor turned U.S. President Ronald Reagan even spoke of an “outside” threat, stating in a speech at the U.N., “perhaps we need some outside universal threat occasionally think how our differences worldwide would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world”.[1]

Months after the speech the U.S. Government’s REX84 program was spawned in secrecy with the controversial Oliver North. This program allotted for the construction of massive and secret detention camps throughout the United States that could later be used in time of a National Emergency or natural disaster.

Now fast forwarding to 2013, we see how this all may have been previously known by NASA and intelligence agencies worldwide as the writing is now on the wall. Would our government indeed gear-up some 30-plus years prior to a potential disaster? After all, the IRAS satellite did in fact discover something worthy of covering-up as early as 1982 according to reports. Some speculate that the then advanced IRAS actually found a planetary body or a brown dwarf star, while other speculate it may have been a comet such as ISON. I myself can even recall my grandfather reading an article to me from some magazine when I was a young boy. The magazine reported that a satellite discovered “light and sound” originating from what may be another planet in our solar system.

One thing is for sure, if the massive mile wide comet ISON actually does manage to survive its pass around the sun on Thanksgiving Day, the earth and all its inhabitants may be in for a major shit storm. While reports say inhabitants of earth will not be in danger, I myself believe it’s possible that debris may rain down of the planet approximately 30 days after its closest pass to earth occurring on Dec. 24th, just about one year late of the ending of the Mayan long-count calendar. Other researchers such as Intellihub’s Avalon also agree.

The fact that NASA and many other agencies have turned their focus toward the massive icy comet raises a red flag. The fact that NASA’s Deep Impact team is assigned to the object is even more uncanny, as Deep Impact successfully changed the trajectory of an asteroid a few years back. Some compare the Deep Impact technology to the Hollywood film “Armageddon” starring Bruce Willis in which a terrestrial oil drilling team was sent into space to land on an asteroid to possibly divert it from hitting the earth. Fox News reported, “NASA wasted no time jumping on ISON. The space agency’s Deep Impact spacecraft observed ISON back in January from a distance of about 500 million miles.

Since then, the observations have stacked up.

Among NASA’s space telescopes taking a look: Swift, Hubble, Spitzer, Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, Solar and Heliospheric Observatory or SOHO, Chandra, Mercury-orbiting Messenger, and the Stereo twin spacecraft.

“Every spacecraft that has a camera, we’re turning on it,” said John Grunsfeld, NASA’s science mission director.

The newly launched Maven spacecraft en route to Mars will gaze at ISON the second week of December, once its ultraviolet instrument is up and running.

“That’s well after closest approach to the sun,” the University of Colorado’s Nick Schneider, who’s in charge of the instrument, said in an email. So it’s not known “whether we’ll see a comet, comet bits or the last wisps of comet vapor.”

“Whatever happens, it’s bound to be interesting. The quip from my colleagues is, ‘Comets are like cats: They have tails and do whatever they want.'”

Besides ISON, NASA is spying on Comet Siding Spring, another Oort cloud comet discovered in January by the Australian observatory of the same name. Siding Spring will pass within tens of thousands of miles of Mars next October, so close that scientists believe the coma of the comet — its thin but expansive atmosphere — will envelop the red planet.

“It will be blanketed in water and dust and meteorites. It moves like 50 kilometers per second, blazing through the environment,” said Jim Green, director of NASA’s planetary science division. That’s more than 110,000 mph, so the comet will be gone from Mars “pretty quick.”

Siding Spring-type events have happened before, Green noted. “We’re just lucky in our lifetime” to have the right spacecraft in the right place to observe the spectacle.

The same applies to ISON.

Add small sounding rockets to the list of paparazzi chasing the comet; NASA fired up one from New Mexico on Wednesday with an ultraviolet telescope that reached 172 miles high before descending by parachute. Consider all the ground observatories peering at the comet, as well as countless amateur astronomers and astrophotographers, and ISON has become the belle of the cosmic ball.”[2]

While likely no one aside from select government agencies of the world know the real truth of the matter, rest assured we live in interesting times.
