Newly discovered green comet to sweep past Earth next week — before disappearing for 400 years

By Katherine Donlevy
Published Sep. 9, 2023

A newly discovered green comet will be making a big debut next week — before disappearing for the next four centuries.

The half-mile-sized Comet Nishimura will likely be visible to the naked eye from the Northern Hemisphere for five incredible mornings after entering our solar system Tuesday, according to EarthSky.

The ball of ice will be the closest to the Earth on Sept. 12, but will pass from a safe distance of 78 million miles away as it barrels through its journey toward the sun.

If it survives its brush with the sun, the comet should be visible again at the end of the month, but this time only from the Southern Hemisphere.

Although visible to the naked eye, folks hoping to catch a glimpse of Nishimura are warned that its trail will be faint.

Early risers should look toward the northeastern horizon about 90 minutes before dawn and expect to see the comet pass about 10 degrees above the horizon near the constellation Leo.

Is there any significance related to it being green?

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

It would be funny if there was a new TicTok challenge for Comet!..  I mean, they did eat Tide Pods.  Why not brush your teeth with Comet?

Romans 12:16-21

Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly, do not claim to be wiser than you are.  Do not repay anyone evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all.  If it is possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all…do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Luke 21:25-26

"And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; men's hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken.

I make light of much I hold in awe, it helps me contain my fears.
Yet in this, I fear not for me, for He is with me.

Yeah... something like that... Yah put the objects in the heavens for signs and for seasons. It is easy with a merely astronomical mind to forget that they are there for a reason... A giant clockwork.

Add to that an historical aversion to comets particularly, and I have to perk up.

I put more weight on the testimony of history than I do current science. Present company excepted, of course.  happy77

IIRC, it was eclipses that were the real harbingers of doom, historically, but those happen more often than comets.

Both are true - But comets, because they are rare, are omens of particular doom... Similar to series of eclipses, but with more urgency.

Well, I recall an ad (can't find it on You Tube) where "Look, It's Haley's Comet!" was used as a distraction to steal french fries or some such.

Lifeforce a bad adaptation of somewhat decent book titled Space Vampires by Colin Wilson. The movie was really just an excuse to have a naked woman walking around, wasn't it?
