Is the sun a giant comet? NASA scientists discover long tail trailing solar system

News releases relating to NASA’s Mission with its incredible IBEX Spacecraft always fills me with enthusiastic excitement… and what a revelation! I’m not a gifted astrophysicist but why do I have a feeling that our Solar System is protected to a greater degree…? Thank you to Alvin of the marvellous Extinction Protocol for posting this fantastic article 🙂

The Extinction Protocol

July 11, 2013SPACENASA’s Interstellar Boundary Explorer (IBEX), a $169 million spacecraft has discovered what many scientists surmised; the sun has a comet-like tail. The less than 20 foot square craft, displayed the tail which couldn’t be seen before because it doesn’t shine, nor does it reflect light. Is the sun a comet? No, it is a star. Both stars and comets have tails, which can usually be seen through a telescope. Our sun was not that easy. “By examining the neutral atoms, IBEX made the first observations of the heliotail. Many models have suggested the heliotail might be like this or like that, but we’ve had no observations. Scientists will not yet give as estimate to the length of the tail, but say it is no more than 1,000 times the distance from the earth to the sun.  IBEX uses ‘energetic neutral atom imaging,’ and measures…

Good afternoon and great Bank Holiday wishes from a beautifully Sun-infused Surrey.

A few weeks ago, the beautiful soul AscendingStarseed posted a blog on her site detailing the amazing works of Susan Joy Rennison.

I had known of Susan Joy from interviews on various radio networks – Veritas and Red Ice being two such networks – but am always happy to discover more of her astonishing works. A recent discovery is this incredible 2012 interview between Susan Joy Rennison and Raz Razam, posted on the You Tube channel of DonkeyDrunkenCircus.

As I listen to Susan Joy’s incredible interviews and read the postings on her enlightening News of the Inbalance blog, my Sister’s words on similar topics just leap into my mind. All I will say is that the synchronicities between Susan Joy’s scientifically-backed research and my Sister’s messages from the Other Side seems to convey similar – and very important – information. Information that cannot be ignored…

(This interview is posted for information and educational purposes.)

Space Weather News: Magnetars, Gamma Ray bursts, Black Holes, Cosmic Rays and Space Weather Storms

Thank you to AscendingStarseed for posting these fascinating excerpts from the blog of the incredible Susan Joy Rennison. I have recently begun to acquaint myself with Susan-Joy’s dedicated and passionate research… and to say that her findings are excitingly intriguing is an enormous understatement…

2012 The Awakening

From Susan Rennisons blog:

Spin-down Measurement of PSR J1745-2900: a New Magnetar
Astronomer’s Telegraph, 4th May 2013
Following the detection with the NuSTAR X-ray Observatory of a pulsed signal from a likely magnetar (ATel #5020) located 3″ from Sgr A* (ATel #5032), we requested a Swift ToO observation to monitor its temporal and spectral evolution. […]

Based on the X-ray timing properties, the pulsed radio emission (ATel #5035,#5040,#5043), the X-ray spectral measurements (ATel #5006,#5011,#5020), and the likely association with Swift flaring behavior (ATel #5006,#5009), we conclude that PSR/SGR J1745-2900 is a magnetar that has emerged from a quiescent state. This is similar to the behavior of the Transient Anomalous X-ray Pulsars, and further blurs any distinction among the different classes of magnetars.

Acceleration…

Good evening from a still, silent Surrey.

Have you all noticed how quickly time seems to be speeding past nowadays? The first week of April is rapidly becoming a full page in our Planet’s Diary and we find ourselves staring into the future annals of History.

This blistering pace of change is affecting work on Book Two:- writing is proceeding at a steady pace but it has become quite apparent that revision to the existing four/five chapters is already an absolute necessity. I began to wonder whether a different approach would be required. Indeed, I am pondering the possibility of committing 2-3 chapters as ‘mini-ebooks’ – encompassing the Ebook chapters under the auspices of one Book 2 umbrella for Paperback release later in the year.

The accelerating unravelling of events has not gone unnoticed by our friends and relatives on the Other Side. Interestingly, my Sister commented several years ago that 2013 was the year to look out for as opposed to 2012. She has not revised her viewpoint, recently stating that ‘so much is happening at once, days will seem to blur into a continuous stream of events, moreso than normal’. She has indicated that April will be ‘interesting’ but has not yet expanded upon this observation – only able to comment, once more, that ‘too much is happening at once’.

My Sister (and our Grandfather)’s message remains that immense changes are awaiting mankind in the near-immediate future. Our Planet is undergoing one of her normal cyclical changes, as are the Solar System and our beautiful Star, the Sun. And yes, it would appear that mankind is facing a particularly challenging period of its history. Ostensibly, one could aver that we began feeling the effects of this particularly bracing wind of change a few years ago.

They assure me that we should not fear the winds of change; without change, the ‘false security of complacency’ sets in and the waters of life become stagnant. We should never forget that loved ones – ethereal and corporeal – are always with us. We are not alone, even if we feel alone.

Whilst everything will be happening so quickly that we feel unable to catch our breath, we will face these momentous events together.

All will be well.

Willow.

‘The Switch Has Been Well and Truly Flicked…’: Part Three

Good evening from a chilly and overcast Surrey.

I owe a considerable apology for the delay in posting this Part 3 of ‘The Switch’. Papal resignations, meteor impacts and school holidays meant that this important topic required a temporary hiatus. Whilst the hiatus from the Blog was underway… the embers were gently glowing in the backburner of my mind. Occasional news items began stoking those embers into sudden flames once more.

The news that reignited those embers was released by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory on 19 February 2013. The article, ‘Cassini Sheds Light on Cosmic Particle Accelerators‘, describes unusual effects on Saturn’s magnetosphere, as observed by the Cassini Solstice Mission’s orbiting satellite. In a nutshell, particles were observed to accelerate to high energetic levels as they approached the gas giant’s magnetosphere, creating a shockwave. This type of acceleration is normally observed in the aftermath of a supernova explosion. I would recommend reading of the full article, given that it is enlightening to an immense degree.

Whilst the article suggests that ‘an unusually strong blast of solar winds‘ was the likely causal factor of the event observed by Cassini, the alternative suggestion (i.e., the acceleration of debris/detritus away from a stellar explosion/supernova) is an intriguing proposition in itself, given recent conversations with my Sister on the subject of supernovae. I would be interested in studying the findings further for two reasons: a) to ascertain the time period of the observed effects (the date) and b) correlating solar wind speeds/Muon particle measurements corresponding to that precise time period.

The Sisterly conversation, coupled with the emergence of the Saturn Shockwave observation, means meandering into the realms of speculation… and, perhaps, serves as a timely reminder that the World of Science should, on occasion, heed the call of conjecture – that investigation in the spirit of adventure is likely the best avenue to follow?

We need to remember that the expression ‘solar wind’ is a misnomer, given that the ‘wind’ itself is an ejection of highly energetic particles from the Sun. Bearing this in mind…

… let’s just assume, for the purpose of this Blog entry, that Cassini’s observations were undertaken during a period of relative solar calm. Those particles wouldn’t have appeared from nowhere – there would have been a source, for certain. Which begs another question (hypothetical, you understand…?)

Is it possible that our Solar System is, effectively, beginning to feel the buffeting effects of a long-distant supernova explosion? And could these possible buffeting effects perhaps offer us the solution to the genesis of the Solar System’s current period of undeniable change?

Astrophysicists have identified periods of past supernovae explosions from historical details. For example, SN185 was witnessed in the year 185AD, its visual splendour recorded by Chinese astronomers in the Book of Later Han. NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope and the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer have since expanded upon the amazing spectral event witnessed by ancestors of long ago. SN1006 was the brightest supernova event in recorded history, with contemporary astronomer Frank Winkler remarking that, such was its magnitude, ‘people could have probably read their manuscripts at night by its light.’

However, I’m going to ask another hypotheticial question out loud. Would our Planet and/or Solar System have been affected by such events, especially if the event was close/explosive enough? During research for the original mass opus of The Journey, I had been spurred to investigate that very question, based on comments made by my Grandfather in 2010 about our Planet being affected by such an event circa 13,500-14,000 years ago. A search-engine question yielded some fascinating returns.

In the article ‘Forget About Global Warming: We’re One Step from Extinction!‘, Laura Knight-Jadczyk and Henry See discuss the astonishing scientific detective work undertaken by physicist Richard Firestone, along with geologists Allen West and Simon Warwick-Smith. Firestone, West and Warwick-Smith’s work focused on the ‘The Great Event of 12,000 years ago’, so catalogued and richly described in various myths and religious texts – and their findings were alarming. All evidence, scientifically verified and quantified, suggested that ‘The Great Event’ was triggered by a supernova explosion which had occurred 29,000 years prior to The Great Event. And the devastation our terrified ancestors faced at that time were visitors, disturbed from our Oort Cloud by the sheer force of the supernova explosion, raining down on them in rocky showers.

And could this happen today…? With meteors exploding over Russia? With increased numbers of Near Earth asteroids becoming apparent? Planetary changes affecting every planet in the Solar System? Three ‘Comets of the Century’ appearing in the space of 9 months? Mars under threat by an asteroid in 2014? How do we know it isn’t happening already…?

Of course… my musings are hypothetical, mere conjecture – those of an armchair astrophysicist. I could not possibly speculate further than this… could I?
