New discovered green comet Lovejoy heading our way and is brightening to naked-eye visibility

Comet Lovejoy (C/2014 Q2) discovered just a few months ago by Terry Lovejoy in Australia, (This is his fifth comet discovery) is heading our way out of deep space and out of the deep southern sky.

The green comet is brightening to naked-eye visibility as it moves into northern skies this holiday season.

Via spaceweather.com: Italian photographer Rolando Ligustri took the picture (above) on Dec. 15th.

Comet Lovejoy is brightening faster than experts predicted. Originally the comet was supposed to reach naked-eye visibility in January or February 2015. It may be crossing that threshold now. Reports from the southern hemisphere put the brightness of the comet at magnitude +6.0, similar to the dimmest stars the human eye can see.

On the nights around Christmas, "Comet Q2," as some are calling it, will glide just south of Sirius, the Dog Star.

Q2 is a very long-period comet, but this is not its first time coming through the inner solar system. On the way in, its path showed an orbital period of roughly 11,500 years.

Flying Saucer disguised as cloud photographed over Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Interesting photograph of a cloaked UFO in the sky over Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Portholes are visible in the upper part of the flying saucer-shaped UFO.


The photographer who has submitted the images to MUFON states:

I parked on Lena’s parking lot, which is a grocery store. I looked up to the sky before getting out of my car when I saw the cloud looking UFO shape in the sky.

I screamed excitedly to my son “Look a UFO” so we excitedly came out of my car quick to take pictures . I was so exited taking pictures I didn’t even think of taking a video.

So then I proceeded after that to go inside the grocery store quick because I wanted to see if it was still there and 11 minutes later I took another photo which was not the full shape UFO I seen, it was like a UFO was there and it left the rest of the cloud behind it or smoke or something.

America Before-Exposing the Cover-Up of Ancient Advanced Civilizations

We speak to Graham Hancock about his new book America Before: The Key to Earth’s Lost Civilization.
