2014 Meteor Superstorms Are Expected Huge Comets Target Earth and Mars WTH Is Going On?


Theories on the structure of comets suggest that any comet could fragment at any time, So it is worth keeping an eye on some of 2014 comets, which have the best chance of reaching naked-eye that may bring real doom or are otherwise Holmes(Perihelion Mar 27, 2014)Over the course of 42 hours in October of 2007, Comet Holmes (17P/Holmes) became a half million times brighter on its way to becoming the largest object in the solar system - larger than the Sun. Holmes is one of the more prominent comets in 209P / LINEAR(May 6, 2014) comet ISON, comet 209P/LINEAR brings real doom!!comet Ison is nothing. The real thing is a comet after Ison in May 2014 (Comet 209P) which will bring some friends with it towards earth, in other words - Faye(May 29, 2014)Orbital Period of Comet FayeThe orbital period of Comet Faye is Faye (4P/Faye) was discovered in 1844 by a French astronomer. It was the first periodic comet to be named after its discoverer and not the individual who determined its orbit. This comet will reach perihelion a couple days after Comet Holmes in Siding SpringPerihelion Oct 25, 2014Estimates for the diameter of the nucleus have varied from 1 to 50 km (0,62 to 31 mi). The resulting upper limit energy of impact could reach 20 billion megatons For reference, the atomic bomb dropped on Nagasaki, Japan at the end of World War II was megatons and the 1908 airburst over the Tunguska River in Siberia was megatonsIf the comet does hit Mars, the effect on our neighboring planet will be monumental and it would mark the second time in recorded history that a comet has been observed hitting a planet. The first, and only known observation, was the impact of Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 on Jupiter in on Leonid Elenin's recent observations, Comet Siding Spring will pass AU (41,300 km, 25,700 miles) from the surface of Mars on October 19, 2014. For comparison, the average distance between the Earth and Moon is .00257 AU (384,400 km, 238,900 miles). #size-ofcomet-siding-springMeteor Outburst ALERT!

    About 17P/Holmes:
    1 - According to the "Orbit Diagram" available on the NASA website for the comet 17P/Holmes, the shortest distance from Earth will be 1.826 AU or 169,737,304.13 miles (273,165,033.03 km) on November 19, 2014.
    2 - Size (volume) does not mean mass. Mass is what really matters and 17P/Holmes has a relatively tiny mass.
    3 - If the tail of the comet 17P/Holmes releases 1,000 fragments per hour and these fragments possesses significant mass so that they could be dangerous to our planet, this comet will be disintegrated shortly.
    About 209P/LINEAR
    It'll be cool to see a show of meteors (not meteorites) in our sky.
    Forget the animation of the Earth being bombarded by big meteorites.
    It's expected that it will be more like a astronomical sandblast.
    This post sounds so exagerated and sensationalist as others previously posted, when ISON was arriving.
    I don't believe in estimatives where a comet nucleus "can vary from 1 to 50km", so I stopped my search here.
