Mysteries and Messages in our Mesmerizing Comets

It is not simply a coincidence that Come Holmes and Comet Halley appeared to have exploded 1.3 to 1.5 billion miles from the Sun.

(SAN DIEGO) - Comets are the most researched phenomenon for over 100 years. If you check the Wikipedia report regarding Comet Hyakutake and compare it to the following “Flash News” report issued over 25 years ago, you will understand why they are not understood...

Comet Hyakutake - Wikipedia

The Wikipedia report states: “One of the great surprises of Hyakutake passage through the inner Solar System was the discovery that it was emitting X-rays.

The emission was brightest in a crescent shape surrounding the nucleus with the ends of the crescent pointing away from the Sun.” This is backwards to what would be expected from particles being sublimated from the nucleus. With sublimated particles, the surface of the nucleus facing the Sun should be bare with the bright particles being blown by the solar wind past the nucleus.

The only way the bright crescent could be facing the Sun is by my concept that the nucleus traveling at 122,000 miles per hour against the radiated magnetic field current of the Sun generates a charge of static electricity that stimulates the normally invisible atoms of gases it encounters to a brightly glowing, visible state of excitement.

On April 5, 1996, KTLA television news reported: “NASA reported they were surprised because Comet Hyakutake was emitting X-ray energy at a rate 100 times higher than it should, but that is alright because NASA scientists like to figure these things out. Comet Hyakutake was measured as only 2 miles across and scientists were trying to determine whether the X-rays were coming from the comet or from the Sun.”

With my concept the X-ray energy was not coming from either one but is created by the resistance of the magnetic field between them.

The fact that no water was detected when the Shoemaker-Levy 9 impacted on Jupiter and no particles have been detected in either the coma or tail of any comet after many attempts by several spacecraft, also prove that it is not particles reflecting sunlight that creates the glow of a comet nucleus and tail. In fact, the coma and tail of Comet Halley was reported to be “cleaner than the clean rooms in which manufacturers use to assemble their spacecraft.”

Even the attempt to gather particles with aero gel flown through the coma and tail specifically to gather particles and return them back to Earth failed to gather any particles. The scientists reported that there were tracks in the aero gel but no particles in the tracks. They surmised that apparently the particles vaporized upon impact.

In fact, it was atoms of gases that were ionized by the static electricity charge that impacted in the aero gel and as soon as the abnormal static electricity was discharged, all that was left was an undetectable inert atom of gas and the track it left in the aero gel. It was the magnetic field surrounding the atom of gas that created the resistance to the aero gel from encroaching into its territory that created the tracks in the aero gel.

Not one item has been detected to support the conventional theory that comets are created by gases or particles sublimated from the comet nucleus reflecting sunlight. In fact, even dry ice will not sublimate any gas when it is kept where the environment is109 degrees below zero. Yet, the comet nucleus is reported to begin sublimating dust and gases when it is still 600 million miles from the Sun where the ambient temperature is colder than 300 degrees below zero F...

And, when Halley’s Comet receded 1.3 billion miles from the Sun, it reportedly “Sprouts cloud, erupts into ‘startling’ brightness 180,000 miles across.” Now this occurred on March 6, 1991, almost 6 years after the scientist reported “Halley’s comet allows the first-ever peek at the birth of a ‘dusty snowball’ on June 26, 1985”. when the comet was still 600 million miles from the Sun – “The point at which the evaporation formed a coma that showed that the comet’s ice primarily is water.” On Dec. 7, 1986, the scientists reported that their International Ultraviolet Explorer satellite “Saw what apparently was an explosion that blew an estimated 100 cubic feet of ice out of its nucleus.”

Paul Feldman, a research scientist from Johns Hopkins University said: “What this tells us is that these volatile materials are located in pockets within the comet and the explosion apparently was caused by heating from solar radiation when heat reaches pockets of volatile subsurface materials.”

Feldman, reporting in the British science journal “Nature”, said, “A camera aboard the orbiting observatory detected a flash of visible light on March 18 that correlated with an ultraviolet radiation sensor’s detection of an outburst of electrically charged carbon dioxide molecules. A day and a half later, ground-based observers sighted a similar mass of carbon monoxide ion near the comet, indicating that both carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide were expelled from the comet during the same outburst, as would be expected.”

In an Oct. 13, 2008 NASA report Bill Reach of NASA’s Spitzer Science Center at C.I.T. said: “We’ve been studying comets for hundreds of years – 116 years in the case of Comet Holmes – but still do not really understand them. The scientists do not understand how Comet Holmes could have “exploded” 1.5 billion miles from the Sun in 1882, yet has continued its orbit every 6 years since then.

Haley's Comet

Comet Holmes

It is not simply a coincidence that Comet Holmes and Comet Halley appeared to have exploded 1.3 to 1.5 billion miles from the Sun. This is the area of the heliopause, the transition point where the magnetic field of the solar system and the more intense magnetic field of the galaxy meet.

What appeared to be an explosion was simply the stimulation of the atoms of gases around the magnetic field of the nucleus of Comet Halley and Comet Holmes encountered the much more intense magnetic field and discharged its accumulated static electricity charge. This did not have any devastating effect on the mass of the comet, it was just an electromagnetic explosion its magnetic field similar to the discharge of static electricity from the body of a person after walking across a carpet when the humidity is very low.

In an article titled “Gusts of Sun” published in the San Diego Union on Aug. 2, 1995, regarding data gathered by the Ulysses spacecraft, it stated: “Last year, radio receivers on both Voyagers registered a loud burst that researchers believe was the crash of a large ejection of solar plasma colliding with the heliopause. Computer analysis of the burst By Paulette Liewer, a theorist at JPL, indicated the boundary lies about 1.5 billion miles from the Sun.” The loud burst of sound detected by radio receivers is the same as a bright flash of light detected by cameras.

The following letters are an excellent example of the extents to which the scientists will go to protect their beliefs instead of reconsidering the basic premise of their theory.

Even in a letter dated Jan. 30, 2012 a highly respected scientist refused to perform my demonstration proving that a charge of static electricity absolutely has a magnetic field surrounding it that will positively stimulate invisible atoms of gases to a glowing, visible state of excitement exactly the same as the glow of the coma and tail of a comet.

He insists that a comet nucleus is a ball of ice and that ice is an insulator that will not generate static electricity while traveling through the magnetic field of the Sun at 122,000 miles per hour. It is this type of obstinate refusal to change their beliefs that has resulted in the failure to explain many mysteries for over one hundred years even when there is absolute proof that there is a better and demonstrable method nature uses to create these phenomena.

In a letter written to me by the late Dr. Brian Marsden of the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory who officially registers the sightings of comets, dated Feb. 19, 1993, he stated:

    “I see no conflict between 50,000 miles near the Sun and 180,000 miles farther away. The distant explosion was triggered by sunlight by its action on extremely volatile material that had not been exposed to sunlight before. Inside the asteroid belt, cometary is almost exclusively governed by water-ice vaporization. Beyond that distance, where comets are normally much less active, the water-ice is frozen solid, and any activity can be expected to be due to vaporization of more volatile hydrogen-carbon-nitrogen-oxygen compounds.”

Henry G. Brinton

In a letter from Henry C. Brinton, Director of the Research Program Management Division of the Office of Space Science of NASA wrote in a letter dated June 10, 1996:

    “The structure of the nucleus is extremely porous. Thus heat penetrates slowly into the nucleus, even as it recedes from the Sun. When some heat reaches a pocket of more volatile ices, such as carbon monoxide, that ice sublimates (vaporizes) rapidly, flows through the pores and entrains dust with it, making a large cloud of dust as reported when Comet Halley had receded far from the Sun in 1991.”

The Copley News “Flash” to the radio station subscribers to their service resulted in me being involved in a live discussion of comets by telephone with the moderators from as far away as station CHUM fm in Toronto, Canada, station ICR in Taiwan and station KSSK am in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Professor John H. Simonetti, of Polytechnic Institute in Blacksburg Virginia heard my conversation on WFIR in Roanoke, Virginia and wrote in a letter dated Feb. 24, 1991:

    “That solid particles do come off comet nuclei is apparent, even without evidence from the Halley missions. For one thing many known meteor showers occur when the Earth crosses the debris strewn orbits of known comets. Furthermore, periodically returning comets become less spectacular (dimmer) with successive passages, which is consistent with their loss of material (dust) on each passage.”

It was just a few days after he wrote that letter that Comet Halley “erupted into a cloud 180,000 miles across” when it created a coma only 50,000 miles across when it was closest to the Sun and presumable would have lost much of its mass during the almost 6 years it was sublimating dust from June 26, 1985 until the ”eruption” on March 6, 1991.

Now, anybody with any common sense should be able to understand that my concept of a solid mass traveling through the magnetic field current of the Sun a high speed will generate a charge of static electricity and it is this static electricity that stimulates the atoms of invisible gases to a visible state of excitement.

And, as the magnetic field current radiating from the Sun (the solar wind) passes through this glowing magnetic field around the nucleus, it increases in intensity also via the natural electrical induction process to the extent that it, also, stimulates the invisible atoms of gases already in its path to a glowing state of excitement to create the glowing tail that always points away from the Sun like the spoke of a wheel. The generation of this magnetic field is absolutely proven with my concept of rubbing a piece of polyethylene material for ten seconds with your bare hand.

Edsel Chromie is a Detroit Michigan native who moved to San Diego in 1965. Edsel is a World War Two Navy veteran who served as a motor machinists mate on diesel electric systems where he learned about the magnetic field current swirling around the primary current flow through a wire as a part of Navy training to trace the direction of flow of the electricity in case of torpedo damage.

This led to Edsel's unique explanations of many phenomena of the universe. He also has four approved patents on solar energy and Sun tracking systems. Today Edsel writes about this unique set of life experiences for, conveying information that seems especially relevant as nuclear disaster, potential changes in the earth's atmosphere, and what many view as an increasing level of natural disasters continue to dominate headlines. Perhaps many of the answers are on hand, yet unaccepted by the scientific community. You can write to Ed Chromie at this address:
