Another Expert Agrees With Dark Comet Theory

February 21, 2013 – 11:31 am | No Comment

Astronomer David Asher (from Armagh University) has agreed with Bill Napier and Janaki Wickramasinghe (Cardiff University) that “dark comets” are real and dangerous.
The following quotes are from a paper by Napier and Asher published in Astronomy & Geophysics.

We know that about one bright comet (of absolute magnitude as bright as 7, comparable to Halley’s Comet) arrives in the visibility zone (perihelion q<5AU, say) each year from the Oort cloud. It seems to be securely established that ~1–2% of these are captured into Halleytype (HT) orbits. The dynamical lifetime of a body in such an orbit can be estimated, from which the expected number of HT comets is perhaps ~3000. The actual number of active HT comets is ~25. This discrepancy of at least two powers of 10 in the expected impact rate from comets as deduced from this theoretical argument on the one hand, and observations on the other, is …

Tunguska-type Event in New Zealand?

Submitted by on September 7, 2011 – 8:07 pmNo Comment

In the South Island of New Zealand, near the small town of Tapanui, you can find the above crater. Well, some scientists believe it to be a small landslide… According to the great array of evidence provided by Dr Jan Pajak, Tapanui was the location of a Tunguska-type event. Well, he says seven UFOs exploded, but if you ignore that there’s great evidence for a cometary impact.

Dr Pajak dates the explosion to 1178AD, based on carbon-dating of the trees which were blown down. The event could also explain the demise of the giant Moa bird. The most common reason put forward is that the Maori hunted them to extinction soon after arriving in New Zealand. However the Maori claim the Moa all died in a widespread fire…

Over at Harvard is a copy of a paper by Duncan Steel & Peter Snow, The Tapanui region of New Zealand: Site of a Tunguska around 800 years ago? – where you’ll find an excellent summary of the evidence, including Maori legends. The name Tapanui is supposedly Maori for big explosion!

Meanwhile, a possibly related event has been highlighted by Peter Mungo Jupp, Mega-Tsunamis, Chinese Junks and Port Phillip Bay, where a comet caused a tsunami which created Port Phillip Bay in Australia. Legends of the local Aborigines and the Chinese support the idea. I’m now feeling slightly less comfortable about living along the edge of that very same bay.
