Comet Hale-Bopp’s “Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy?”
Exploring a link between the Giza Plateau, Comet Hale-Bopp, the current solar minimum, and 2012 …
In the fall of 1996, my friend Ron Russell and I were together one evening when we first heard about Comet Hale-Bopp. Detailed coordinates allowed us to locate the “new” comet in the sky with just binoculars. As I recall we followed the directions precisely by first locating a certain notable star through the binocs, then we looked a few degrees to the left of it and up by a certain number of degrees. There it was! Unmistakable - and beautiful.
What a sight: a bright nucleus shedding a misty dust field behind it. I can’t say how I knew this right away, but I straightaway noticed a spot of light in the tail that seemed distinctly unnatural, and pointed it out to Ron.
Over the next few nights we continued to follow the comet as it coursed past the star background, the object in the tail as obvious as a clingy puppy. I’m no astronomer, but I knew that something was excitingly “wrong” about the light following Hale-Bopp. Night after night we watched the two lights riding side-by-side through space. (Note, this was BEFORE the late Chuck Shramek released his photo of Hale-Bopp and the companion object. Ron and I were, we later found out, among many other, lucky discoverers of the “hitchhiker.”)
The official explanation for the anomaly is critical evidence of a coverup, although it worked fabulously by the next spring when Hale-Bopp fever took over the US. According to NASA, which, as I’ve noted before, is surely the acronym for Not A Safe Assumption (i.e., that we’re getting the truth), initial reports of the companion object were explained away by a magnitude 8 star in the background which was missed by flawed computer star-plotting software.
That explanation may have been plausible if the “star” had only been seen on one night. But stars don’t change position. And the companion stayed with the comet night after night as it traversed the star background. The comet’s tag-along was noticeable from Earth. It wasn’t a star hitched to Hale-Bopp.
During the winter months, the comet disappeared from view as its orbit took it around the far side of the sun. When the comet came out from behind the sun, surely whatever was in the tail would be even more noticeable. What would happen then?!
Time would tell. Only when Hale-Bopp was ready to emerge did popular reports about the upcoming great comet hit major media - convenient, since whatever was in the tail the fall previous had detached or otherwise become invisible during transit behind the Sun!
Meanwhile, the Heaven’s Gate “UFO Cult” suffered a perfectly-orchestrated and well-publicised demise, effectively detracting the media (and thus, public attention) away from the real story - not only for the moment, but for all of time. Official photographs of Hale-Bopp accidentally posted months earlier at the JPL website were suddenly wiped clean of the inexplicable “star.” And under threat of ridicule, many witnesses to the companion object retreated, noting with silent incredulity the covers of major science and astronomy magazines, which showed the blazing comet as it approached its closest pass by our planet in Spring of 2007, unencumbered by any supernatural hitchhikers.
Based on my observations, I believe that Hale-Bopp may have been a convenient form of gravitational transport for some artificial object. Whatever the case, I can’t ignore the pronounced solar cycle effects that coincide with the comet’s companion’s mysterious disappearance. Autumm 1996 was the lowest point of the last solar minimum. We are also now lodged in the abyss of an extended solar minimum, one which should have ended by now. Instead, 2008-2009 is shaping up to be one of the most sunspot-free stretches in almost 100 years - rivaling only 1913. The effects on our environment and on our consciousness remain to be seen as we continue our approach to 2012…
…which, by the way, I think we’re close enough to by now to bring up an important new topic, and that is the precession of the equinoxes that occurs roughly every 26,000 years - just under that. If we take JPL’s ephemeris for Hale-Bopp’s prior transits through our immediate solar system (I specify prior transits, since the next anticipated one seems to have been dramatically revised due to the comet’s gravitational interaction with the super-massive Jupiter during this pass), we will go back in time by 4206 years to determine Hale-Bopp’s prior passes.
Now, this is important: if Graham Hancock and others are correct about the pyramids pointing to an epoch about 12,500 to 12,600 years ago (and I consider the latter to be a more accurate figure, based on the research of Goro Adachi, which more precisely narrows down Graham Hancock’s calculation), then on a whim, why not take 12,600 divided by 4200…..hmmmm…..we get precisely THREE.
Could this possibly mean that the Giza Plateau is commemorating the mysterious comet we’ve just been considering….?!?!
I believe the current solar minimum is related to consciousness expansion. An upcoming article delves into possible positive effects on our DNA as a result of a current influx of galactic cosmic radiation.
To complement this post, you might want to bring up the following link, which will allow you to visualise the “11-year” sunspot cycle (which, at this point has apparently been extended to a 12.5 year cycle - and counting….). You may also find it handy to accompany a reading of my prior post “Solar Low = Consciousness High?” regarding a possible correlation between our shrinking heliosphere and apparent advances in both human and non-human consciousness.
(Two dates to check with regard to this particular post: 1 October 1996, representing the approximate date I first learned about Comet Hale-Bopp and started tracking the companion object in its tail, and 19 April 2009 - today. Notice anything?)
