Signs in the heavens? Two comets racing towards Earth and Sun: ‘unprecedented’

November 23, 2013 SPACENASA spotted Comet ISON coming on strong on Thursday. An awesome set of images shows Comet Encke, its tail wriggling, along with Mercury and Earth. Then ISON enters the field. It looks like a comet race. It’s evidence, the space agency says, that ISON is still intact and hasn’t splintered as it approaches the sun. A camera on NASA’s Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory captured the action Thursday. Watch the tails of the comets below. Solar wind, the particles that stream outward from the sun at 1 million miles per hour, make the comets’ tails move. – LA Times
Double Comets: Battams points out another exciting development: Comet Encke and Comet ISON are converging for a photogenic close encounter. “No they’re not going to hit each other – in reality they are millions of miles apart – but as seen from the STEREO-A spacecraft, they are going to get very close!” he says. “We are probably a couple of days away from seeing two comets almost side-by-side in that camera, with long tails flowing behind them in the solar wind. To say that such an image will be unprecedented is rather an understatement.” Stay tuned for that. –Space Weather

    In that image Encke is 24 million miles CLOSER to the imager than ISON, yet ISON looks MUCH Larger than Encke!!! ISON Must Be HUGE!!!

    ISON IS HUGE / NEW NUMBERS

    We saw Comet ISON while driving this morning between 9A.M. to 9:45A.M in Buffalo City Wisconsin. It was awesome to be able to see it. Will we be able to see Comet Encke? In what direction would the sun be in your top video?

    Alvin,

    NASA clarified the location of the camera in their latest spaceweather.com post.

    But please take a look at Yellowstone. I do not have all the resources you do, There have been three 3.0+ quakes in as many days. I believe this is highly unusual.

    Also, there still is no clarification as to why Wikipedia’s perihelion date for comet Enkle is so far off.
