The Atomic Comet: Carbon Cousins

There’s a fairly widespread fascination for Comets that’s partly a response to the Cognitive Dissonance experienced when Astronomers authoritatively assert a Comet is a dirty snowball while the observer’s lying eyes see a scaled-up meteor burning-up in space. Place your … Continue reading

1472: A Very Particular and Curious Comet

This gallery contains 11 photos.

The Comet of 1472 is a much maligned milestone in the annals of observational science simply because the master of St. Peter’s College [Cambridge] chronicled the comet’s precession as it decayed, diminished and [finally] disappeared whilst orbiting the Earth. On … Continue reading
