Chevdove Posted March 15 Report Share Posted March 15 (edited) Another COMET BIGGER THAN The Green Comet! – The PURPLE MOUNTAIN COMET!-Tsuchinshan-ATLAS 2024 I love to refer to this comet as The PURPLE MOUNTAIN COMET, because it was this observatory in China that pick it up first and the name sounds awesome. However, it was thought to be an asteroid at first but when it was picked up on the ATLAS in South Africa, was when it was confirmed to be a comet with a very large mass. Therefore the comet is called Tsuchinshan-ATLAS comet [C/2023 A3 (Tsuchinshan-ATLAS)]. So if it does get past the sun without burning up, it is predicted to be much larger than both the comet NEOWISE and the Green Comet ZTF! This comet was confirmed around the same time that the Green comet was here! However, it will not come close to the sun and earth until way after next year! Reports vary but the earliest date to be near the sun is September 28, 2024. It is predicted to come closest to our earth starting OCTOBER 13-to OCTOBER 19! Well! That’s interesting! For, this is the very week of the Passover-Crucifixion some 2000 years ago!!! So, the Simchat [i.e. Timkhet] Festival in the Middle East and Ethiopia will be crazy, if this comet does come in during this week! _____________________________________ Newly discovered comet could be brighter than recent ‘Green Comet’ in 2024 night sky. Check details here There is a possibility that a bright comet called C/2023 A3 (Tsuchinshan-ATLAS) could be visible in the night sky in 2024, potentially even brighter than the recent "green comet". The comet was discovered on February 22, 2023 by the Asteroid Terrestrial-impact Last Alert System (ATLAS) in South Africa, and was later identified as the same object previously discovered by the Purple Mountain Observatory in China. … The comet is currently located between the orbits of Jupiter and Saturn and will reach its perihelion, or the point in its orbit closest to the Sun, on September 28, 2024. Currently, the comet is too faint to be observed without the use of powerful telescopes, but it could become visible to the naked eye or through binoculars by September 2024. https://economictimes.indiatimes.com/news/new-updates/newly-discovered-comet-could-be-brighter-than-recent-green-comet-in-2024-night-sky-check-details-here/articleshow/98580708.cms?from=mdr Move over Green comet! A ‘brighter’ new comet to visit Earth, outshine stars in the sky Comet C/2023 A3 (Tsuchchinshan-ATLAS) could be headed to the Earth in 2024 and there is a possibility that it could be even brighter than the recently seen green comet. Check details. By: HT TECH | Updated on: Mar 11 2023, 19:12 IST If it retains its brightness, then between October 12 and October 19, 2024, the comet will put up a stellar display in the night sky as it shines brighter than any recent comets. It would be visible in the west-southwest evening sky up to 3 hours after sunset and will shine brighter than the stars. The low altitude and full Moon on October 17 can affect the visibility on that day somewhat. … https://tech.hindustantimes.com/tech/news/move-over-green-comet-a-brighter-new-comet-to-visit-earth-outshine-stars-in-the-sky-71678541775638.html SPACE SCIENCE New-Found ‘Once in 80,000 Years’ Comet Might Outshine the Stars During Its Close Approach in 2024!
