    Ok, vaguely on topic, can you all manage that? Posted Image

    Mebbe. Any prizes?

     

    Bit of a week, mostly not related to the weather Posted Image but various work-related mongooseing super duper-for-brains induced problems.

     

    The weather was actually remarkably boring. almost 100% cloud every day, no frost, little wind.  Have you all had this? Then last night I got woken by what sounded like someone throwing buckets of gravel at the velux.  It was blustery showers of hail and fierce blasts all day but at least the sun appeared briefly.

    I thought the topic was the mate controversy - pure racism/banning of syntax not used since 2005 Posted Image

    Anyway, I honestly haven't seen the 12Zs yet (shocking, I know) and haven't read through the other or MT thread but I'm assuming the ECM is good judging by Nick's post and the fact that it's been excellent for five out of the last six runs for here. I'll get back to you with a summary and maybe even a look at the Fax chart if we're into interesting territory with it(I suspect we aren't quite yet but getting closer to it).

    COMET ISON LIVES (UPDATED): Cancel the funeral. Comet ISON is back from the dead. Yesterday, Nov. 28th, Comet ISON flew through the sun's atmosphere and appeared to disintegrate before the cameras of several NASA and ESA spacecraft. This prompted reports of the comet's demise. Today, the comet has revived and is rapidly brightening. Click to view a SOHO coronagraph movie of the solar flyby

     

    Before the flyby, experts had made many predictions about what might happen to the comet, ranging from utter disintegration to glorious survival. No one predicted both.

     

    Karl Battams of NASA's Comet ISON Observing Campaign says, "[colleague] Matthew Knight and I are ripping our hair out right now as we know that so many people in the public, the media and in science teams want to know what's happened. We'd love to know that too! Right now, here's our working hypothesis:

     

    "As comet ISON plunged towards to the Sun, it began to fall apart, losing not giant fragments but at least a lot of reasonably sized chunks. There's evidence of very large dust in the long thin tail we saw in the [sOHO coronagraph] images. Then, as ISON plunged through the corona, it continued to fall apart and vaporize, losing its coma and tail completely just like sungrazing Comet Lovejoy did in 2011. What emerged from the Sun was a small but perhaps somewhat coherent nucleus that has resumed emitting dust and gas for at least the time being."

     

    Battams emphasizes that it is too soon to tell how big the remnant nucleus is or how bright the resurgent comet will ultimately become. "We have a whole new set of unknowns, and this ridiculous, crazy, dynamic and unpredictable object continues to amaze, astound and confuse us to no end. We ask that you please be patient with us for a couple of days as we analyze the data and try to work out what is happening."

     

    Astrophotographer Babak Tafreshi has edited an HD video that compares views of ISON from both of SOHO's coronagraphs. "It seems the comet could become a naked eye object with several degrees of scattered tail by Dec 2nd or 3rd," he predicts. "It's not the comet of the century for sure, and fainter than the Lovejoy sungrazer in Dec. 2011, but an interesting imaging target is just a few nights away!"

    cant see it running out of fuel they have safety measures they have to head back once there fuel gets to a certain level.
