We, as yet, know very little about these three, supposedly unrelated, comets that rounded the Sun fairly close together.

Given their proximity one would normally think that they were 3 fragments from the same parent comet. Current consensus, though only based on minimal study, is that they are NOT fragments. Basically unrelated. Strange, but can happen.

Very small. Went undetected until spotted, after the fact, on SOHO images.

Have NOT been given MPC designations as yet because we don’t have enough observational data.

Just a heads up.

The above two extracts from my “Comets” book tell you everything you need to know. SMILE.

NASA/ESA SOHO makes available digital images that amateurs can scan at their leisure to spot comets.

The 3,000th comet thus discovered was made in September 2015.

So just under 5-years to find another 1,000. That is 200 a year. NOT BAD.

Professional astronomers from around the world have been making utter jackasses of themselves
for the last 8 months spouting mindless drivel about Comet ISON.

Why?

Because they are ALL shameless publicity seeking pompous buffoons.

All they want is 15 minutes of glory.

They don’t care if they are proved to be totally, utterly wrong as they were on Thursday.

To prematurely claim that ISON was dead was criminal.

Oh, NO!

They were tripping over themselves to Tweet, YouTube and tell the media that ISON was a goner.

They were wrong.

They have been wrong about ISON all this year.

But, it is so patently obvious. All they want is the 15 minutes of glory.

Shameless.

Professional astronomers have never really impressed me. I have much more time and respect for the amateurs.

The ISON fiasco was a disgrace. NASA and ESA should get rid of all their so called professionals.

NASA has screwed up so badly on ISON it isn’t funny. They waste taxpayer money like there is no tomorrow.
