It's probably this (http://www.badastronomy.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=11733)that they're talking about, without knowing it.

First off bmpbmp, you need to do more than just post random links as posts.

Secondly, 99.9999% from GLP is either a joke, a woowoo post, or in some other obvious way, wrong.

As to the post, I can't find anything on CNN or Space.com that mentions this at all.

Do yourself a favor and stop visiting GLP, it should lower your stress levels quite a bit.

I am attempting to be a minor debunker on GLP, I seriously doubt that me posting in Nancy's "Thats not Mercury! Its Venus" thread is what brought about her "The Zeta's are lying to me" thread.. but I like to think that I helped in some small way to push the PX theory further out the window than it already is. :wink:

I haven't heard anything on the news about it, but I did catch it on another forum. http://www.itshappening.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=31244 Again, people are connecting this to the incoming comets. If it is this deep field image, would it be groundbreaking enough to actually be on international front-pages, or is it hype?

.. I was curious how far away it was thats allV838 Monocerotis is about 20,000 light-years away according to this (http://www.esa.int/esaCP/SEME8N2PGQD_index_2.html) article from the ESA.

There's another thread about V838 Monocerotis here (http://www.badastronomy.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=11798).

so taht is about 20 000 years away from earth right and that would make it in another galaxy not the mily way..

Am I strting to get this stuff archer buddy

According to that ESA article:
V838 Mon is located about 20 000 light-years away from Earth in the direction of the constellation Monoceros, placing the star at the outer edge of our Milky Way galaxyYou're starting to get it bmpbmp. Don't be afraid to ask questions, we all learn on this board. 8)

so basically 1 light year is 1 year from earth right

Archer17
2004-Mar-06, 11:10 PM
1 light year is the distance light travels in 1 year. Since light travels at approx 186,000 miles per second you can imagine how far V838 Mon is!

In that link I posted (which is a cut and paste of something from Rumor Mill News, I think) they go as far as to say V838 could be Planet X, or some sort of partner for the comet LINEAR. People can get pretty rediculous, I suppose.

Supernova 1987A was in the Large Magelanic Cloud which is about 170,000 light years away.

No, 20,000 light years away is still in the Milky Way.

The Milky Way is something like 34,000 parsecs across, right? So that's around 100,000 ly?

The Galaxy's a big place.

Just curious. It sounds like it could be related, but I'm not sure. Anyone know what Debunker Command and Natasha are talking about over there? Said there's going to be an announcement in 3 days, but the event is happening in 9. Not sure what's going on, but alot of people seem in on it.

Shows you what astronomical ignorance can foment. Click here (http://www.stsci.edu/hst/udf) for an explanation of what all the hullabaloo is about re: March 9 with thanks to ToSeek and CERDIP for the link. They must have mentioned this on CNN and some people jumped to all kinds of conclusions because they cut to a commercial before the piece was done. It's not like something like that never happened before! #-o

BAroxMysox
2004-Mar-07, 06:50 AM
Well, the announcement is supposed to come on the 10th, with whatever is going to happen 9 days after, on the 19th. I've been looking around more, and it's supposedly going to be chaos or "the end times" Can't tell if it's astronomical or what.

EDIT: I suppose it does involve incoming comets/asteroids. Possibly aliens. Pesky aliens, at that.

So, are you idiots saying you dont believe this? ("NASA is truthful and honest in it's dealings with the American public")

Except when matters of incoming comets/asteroids are concerned......

Then you swallow...hook...line....and sinker.

I went over there BAroxMysox via your link. I couldn't log in (I used to be a member, maybe they shut me down :lol: ) but the only thing I read from Natasha was some vague innuendos about "something" that will happen. I said "hi" :^o but there wasn't anything really substantive to address. My advice is to take a pound of salt along with you any time you surf there.

BAroxMysox
2004-Mar-07, 07:37 AM
Yeah, I caught that, hehe. But yeah, it is vague. There's a few other threads there that have dealt with this same thing, and several other people that are "playing" along. The latest I've seen was that it's probably involving aliens in the multitude of comets approaching Earth (???) I will be taking things with salt there now. This is the first time I've ever actually browsed their forums. Is it always this looney?

Well, she said that in two weeks we would all be dead. I guess if we are all alive in two weeks, it will proove beyond a doubt (heh, like we aren't there yet) that she is full of it. What do you bet she just acts like she never said that.

Just an update I stumbled across browsing through there. I guess they're claiming it's a comet impact. Possibly in the US. Some guy said JPL and NASA found out that it's going to be like .04 lunar distances from Earth. Still not making any sense. I'm gonna stay away from there now.

personnaly i think that it is wrong. This Nat person is claiming to have an inside scoop and that she is heading for the mountains with a rented 130 cargo plane on the 10 and wait for the rest of us to die by the 19. She is also comeing on a daily basis giving a daily countain and mocking the people that are teasing and are afraid themselves.She even has friends that are in on it. I find that this can hurt alot of people if it turns out to be a hoax. Sometimes I just wish all this garbage can be stopped or dealt with when you play with peoples emotions like this it is worng, real wrong, I just hope no one gets hurt to bad out of this.

Did you do a screen capture with date stamp on that?

Not that it can't be faked according to the HBs, but those who know DSP can usually ferret out the misplaced pixels.
