Astronomers, astrophysicists and scientists In general, dedicated space explorers are on alert for the arrival of Comet Diablo. It is a space rock three times taller than Mount Everest.
The identified comet is given the scientific name 12P/Pons–Brooks. It was discovered in 1812 by French astronomers Jean-Louis Pons, Alexis Bouvard, and Vincent Visnevsky, so its path has been traced ever since. It has an elliptical orbit around the Sun, taking just over 71 years to orbit the massive star.
This characteristic is sufficient to understand why it has attracted so much attention from scholars. He is not a frequent traveler across our borders. At perihelion, it will be less than one astronomical unit, about 120 million kilometers from the massive star and 66 million kilometers from Earth, making it visible from our sky.
This comet made the news this year, as scientists monitoring it noticed volcanic activity on its surface, causing it to leave a trail on its stellar journey through the solar system.
MVS News The closest approach between Earth and the comet will reportedly be on April 21, 2024, 13 days after the total solar eclipse will cross North America. The distance between them is not a cause for concern due to the effect. It is practically impossible to collide with us. }
Comet 12P/Pons-Brooks is an active volcanic comet, meaning it could spew icy material into space. It is also characterized by its eruptions, which are sudden explosions that can increase in brightness by up to 5 degrees.
