MASSIVE SOLAR ERUPTIONS have accompanied the close solar flyby of the comet NEAT Tuesday. One coronal mass ejection plume at 05:00 hours 18 Feb. --Tuesday morning, extended at least 5 million miles from the surface of the sun toward the comet, Other coronal discharges were observed extending in excess of 12 million miles.
In the early hours
of Thursday morning around 6:30am the comet discussion board inexplicably
went offline about thirty minutes after participants discovered that NASA
had been faking webimages of the comet's passage past the sun on the morning
of the 18th February.
Slightly excessive for a terror attack perhaps?
BEST KEPT SECRET
Incredibly, there has been little media advance reporting of this most spectacular comet passage since Hale-Bopp and virtually no reporting of these current solar responses or the gaps in web imaging.
However one of the most intriguing aspects of all this, is that only four days ago, Dr. Geoffrey Sommer, of the Rand Corporation in Santa Monica, California said that secrecy might be the best option if scientists were ever to discover that a giant asteroid was on course to collide with Earth.
"Overreaction not just by the public but by policy-makers scurrying around before the thing actually hits because we can't do anything about it anyway ... to a large extent you are better off not adding to your social costs," said Dr Sommer, who is also an adviser on terrorism. That's right, Dr. Sommer works for the Rand Corporation and is also an adviser on terrorism.

BIZARRE NASA MESSAGE RE LIVE WEB IMAGING:
"NOTE: The Washington DC metropolitan area is under a snow emergency. If the LASCO team has technical problems with the software that reformats telemetry into images for the web they may not be able to fix it until the emergency is lifted."
SUN DIAMETER EQUALS 870,000 MILES
NEAT DIAMETER EQUALS 348,000 MILES
LENGTH NEAT TAIL EQUALS 5,220,000 MILES
JUPITER DIAMETER EQUALS 88,782 MILES
TO SAY THIS BABY IS BIG IS A LITTLE BIT OF AN
UNDERSTATEMENT AS IS ITS TOTAL INVISIBILITY.
NOTE Comet size referred to is size of coma -actual comet approx size of Mercury
Hit by Solar Flare?
Spectacular images of the recently found NEAT comet show the cosmic voyager more than twice the size of planet Jupiter may have been struck by a massive solar eruption.
Images from the SOHO (Solar and Heliospheric Observatory) satellite, which sits partway between Earth and the Sun and is designed primarily to monitor space weather, have on Tuesday morning shown a massive solar plume extending over a 5 million miles above the sun -seemingly towards the comet. But though the photography is time-lapsed, there are 7 hourly photographs missing from the data released by the SOHO project -meaning it is impossible to determine if the plume later extended to strike the comet.
A coronal mass ejection (CME), already appears to have hit the comet Monday, according to SOHO deputy project director Paul Brekke. The SOHO imaging shows sunlight reflecting off gas and dust from the comet's nucleus and hydrogen solar wind from the sun. The comet has been in LASCO's imaging domain since Sunday. It will begin to move out of the field of view around 5 a.m. EST on Thursday, Feb. 20.
COMMENTS FROM TUESDAY--WEDNESDAY
"In Twin Cities tonight, about 6:00 p.m., I saw our comet! To say it is big is putting it midly. To the west and north a bit, you couldnīt miss it low on the horizon. But was anybody but me looking at it in the grocery store parking lot? Nope, nada. Fucking phenomenal. I saw the comet that last passed us 37,000 years ago. To keep this a secret is a CRIME of unprecedented proportions." 2/20/2003 12:56 am EST "
A WEBSURFER'S COMMENT:
"Two days ago a press release comes out of NASA saying they would keep it a secret if an earth-threatening object came along. Now this NEAT comet is swapping spit with the sun and not a word in the media? Kids, thereīs no coincidences. I never bought into any of that Zeta Talk crap, but this baby has my attention."
NEW ZEALAND WEBSURFER NZDOOODE COMMENT:
"Yeh, I contacted my National newsroom on the 18th and they told me that I was the first to tell them about it *shocked* is the mainstream media asleep or are they liars!??! I saw this 2002V1 comet with my naked eyes on sunset the other night, the sun was obscured by some loud, it was the most amazing sight I have ever seen before, in the sky. A major astronomical event like this, to keep the truth from the public is pure EVIL!! I looked in the sunīs direction today and was dazzled by an unusual īvery whiteī saturated light - significantly brighter than usual!! We are getting very red skies at sunrise and at sunset, itīs summer here and we just got a forecast for unusual thunder/snow/hail tomorrow."
"Where the hell are the missing SOHO images?
That's what I want to know. I've emailed SOHO admin. no response as of yet.
Right when things get interesting, 7 missing images."
"Well they surely updated their Real Time animation and took the swirl portion of it out! I'm going to rerun it to confirm. It's wierd because I downloaded the Realtime movie player and it showed the comet rounding the Sun all the way to the point to where the swirl was eminationg from where the comet would've been off camera. Then I was watching this thing playing over and over and all of a sudden the download boxes kept updating and the next thing I knew the last time stamp went from 23:42 to about twenty minutes earlier with no swirls now. Something is fishy at the Cape! "
STATEMENT BY GULUFUTURE.COM
Well, what a 23hrs. it has been folks.
Where would we all be without NZdooode who set up the new Web Forum.
He was on to me within a few hours of the forum being pulled. I knew from the moment it happened, why it happened. Here's the incredible and highly instructive story of exactly what did happpen.
Well, somebody sure pushed the Code Orange panic button when the screwed
up image was found at:
I had been already glued to the previous webboard for over 24hrs. and was saving material as I went along. I nearly fell of my Internet seat when Whizadree posted a link to a composite image overlay GIF detailing the NASA faking of images. I grabbed it immediately. Within around 45mins or so, the webboard had been pulled and I knew the s**t had hit the fan.
I spent the next ten hours writing up the whole story and preparing the images --to get it out quick in case they wanted to bury it forever. And coordinating with NZdooode. Around 16:30GMT Thursday, I had it all ready to fly. No way was I going to just post it to my own site alone. Too easy to block me out as well. So I had about five windows open and two email clients opened. Just then NZDoooode came back with the new forum details and we were ready to fly.
In one fell swoop I uploaded to my own GuluFuture site; posted the
whole deal on RMNews forum; posted it to Cloak and Dagger forum. Also
I had prepared two mirror sites so I popped it up onto them at the same
time; and pushed the button on a pop mailout to key individuals and
a duplicate of same by email HTML client. Along with the details of
the new forum.
You will never guess what happened. Rumormill and Cloak and Dagger went offline within the hour. Both are high profile & high traffic sites. Somebody had hit the Code Red panic button this time. Now I hear that even Rense.com was down. (I got into some hot water on RMN recently for getting in an argument with Jeff Rense over the Maariv photo of Columbia [NASA again folks])
They never hit my own sites -remember I had two mirrors set up. But there was no way they were letting the forum regroup to do even more damage before they had figured out where things stood. Or if there was even worse coming down the pike.
So within a few hours they started hacking the forum here. Didn't look good at that stage. But NZdoode kept plugging away and managed to beat off the hackers.
Well then I guess they figured they had the measure of the problem by then, so next thing you know, Rense.com is back; RMN is back with no mention of offline time -which they usually do; and old forum is back with a neat message explaining they lost their net connection for a while. Those three are just one of those wierd coincidences. Cloak & Dagger is still off as I write, and they are trying to figure what happened at the moment.
I just recorded and analysed the great work done by others to uncover all this. Take a bow folks. This is strike three for me. Strike two was the Columbia "accident." And as some of you know, I was all over the 9/11 issue as you can see on serendipity.magnet.ch and our site: http://www.wagkingdom.com
All of these three featured a lot of disinfo but none had panic buttons being pushed like we have seen today. It's a good day for free thought and speech. Smells like some kind of freedom coming.
