- Clues as one object passing in front of another or the speed of travel across the skies that would
preclude an object far away from making that trek are visual clues of distance. In the case of a comet
within the Solar System, unless the comet is obliterated by another planet, no clue is given.
- Emissions and their intensity are a clue, but here the populace is at the mercy of a handful of major
observatories and NASA and JPL, who have all along been instructed not to counter the story line on
- The relative motion of objects in relationship to the motion of the Earth is a clue, but unlike the outer
planets in your Solar System, where the Earth's revolutions around the Sun put it at a triangulation
posture so that distance determinations can be made. But in the case of a comet passing in a matter of
months, such triangulation is debatable.
- The single clue available to the populace is the angle of the tail which points directly away from the
Sun. As we have explained, drawing a simple diagram as viewed from well above the Solar System
and placing a comet in this or that position relative to the Earth and Sun will quickly show that the
comet cannot be at the distance claimed!
