In the early hours of Saturday morning, a green physically ancient comet will be visible as it passes 7.4 million miles from Earth. Comet 45P/ Honda-Pajdusakova, named after three astronomers, will be visible with binoculars or a small telescope between Thursday and Sunday.
The comet will travel through Ophiuchus, Corona Borealis, Bootes, Canes Venatici, Coma Berenices and finally Leo. The comet will appear bluish-green with a tail. 45P will pass 0.0831 AU (12.430.000KM; 7.720.000 miles from Earth on February 11th and could even be visible to the naked eye. The comet was last seen New Year’s Eve as it began its path past the Northern Hemisphere and it will become visible again as it swings back past the sun. The comets maximum brightness will be at a magnitude of 6.
This is the eighth closest comet since 1950, and it is due it its extremely proximity to Earth that spectators will be able to see the comet. The comet was discovered in 1948 and has previously approached Earth in 2011, and it has also come very close to Jupiter which caused changes in the comet’s orbit. Many believe that Comet 45P shows a coming year of chaos in 2017. Christian’s believe that the comet will split as it passes the Sun and that half of 45P will collide with Earth. The Bible directly warns about this approaching comet stating; ‘And there will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth distress of nations in perplexity because of the roaring of the sea and the waves. Men’s hearts will faint them for fear for looking after those things which are coming upon the earth, for the powers of heaven will be shaken.’
Christian, Paul Begley warned “we have to take this seriously, ” He says that the Lord has directly warned him that this comet brings chaos and will be a bad start to a bad year. Others believe the comet is the second coming of Jesus. As this comet will be swinging back past the sun at a considerable force, it is possible that there could be a split in its core. According to NASA, the public has nothing to worry about. However, they also agree that they cannot guarantee there will be no variations from its forecasted path.
