Incredible Comet Bigger than the Sun

Post by Diamond dragon on Fri Nov 16, 2007 2:42 pm

A comet that has delighted backyard astronomers in recent weeks after an unexpected eruption has now grown larger than the sun.

The Sun is a pretty average star. It's just closer to us than any other star.

Not surprised really.. Some predict that there are planets out there far larger then the Sun itself. Not really surprised if there would be a comet larger then the Sun.

So? Imagine 10000000 (possible exaggeration) tons of dust being pressed towards a planet. You are aware that, assuming I could get enough of them, I could crush your bones using feathers! Just needed a hell of a lot of them..but it would happen eventually Laughing

Sunlight IS NOT heat.

Fact.


Heat can travel through metal but light cannot = proof.

Because we are further away from the sun so there is less radiating towards us, at night the suns radiation is on the other side of the planet thats why it is cold at night and winter, anyone esle want to challenge that fact!?
