  • The Devil Comet is approaching Earth.
  • It’s larger than Mount Everest.
  • Astronomers are closely monitoring it.

The British Astronomical Association has released news that has shocked the entire world — an extremely dangerous comet is heading towards Earth.

This comet, called 12P/Pons-Brooks, or the Devil Comet, began exploding in space on October 5 and is hurtling towards the planet at a disturbing speed.

The most amazing thing is its size, which is estimated to be three times larger than Mount Everest, which is more than 29,000 feet high.

This one-of-a-kind comet, is classified as cryovolcanic, meaning it has a frozen core that holds gases that expand and cause it to erupt as it warms.

It is being called the Devil Comet because of its unique shape which resembles two horns.

It’s been determined that these horns are the result of the comet’s constant eruptions due to its volatile composition.

Recently, astronomers observed an unusual phenomenon. The comet seemed to have suddenly become several times brighter.

This puzzling observation led to an even more disturbing discovery — a new eruption, which has led to speculation about the implications of this anomalous activity.

It is worth mentioning that the potential impact of 12P/Pons-Brooks on Earth is still unknown according to experts.

Astronomers are working hard to calculate its trajectory and determine if there is a real threat to our planet.

When will it pass by Earth?

The comet was first discovered in July 1812, by Jean-Louis Pons. Since then the it is one of the 20 known comets with active ice volcanoes.

The Devil Comet is expected to be visible in April 2024, offering astronomy enthusiasts a unique opportunity to study this celestial phenomenon.

Additionally, NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope has shed light on its composition by detecting water around it in the main asteroid belt.

This is a significant finding that provides more information about this enigmatic comet, according to infobae.

Although comet 12P/Pons-Brooks is heading towards Earth. It will not reach its closest point to Earth until 2024, when it will be visible to the naked eye.

The space rock will then be catapulted back into the solar system and won’t be seen again until the year 2095. So it doesn’t pose a threat to our planet.

According to experts, the star orbits the sun every 71 years. That is why it is expected that we will be able to see it next year.

It is often speculated that life on Earth could be wiped out by a giant meteor, however, experts have denied these rumors.

Experts will continue to observe the comet

Experts are constantly analyzing the risk posed by this comet.

Advanced telescopes and tools are being used to track its position and speed accurately, according to El Heraldo de México.

The data collected will be critical to making informed decisions on how to address this potential threat.

As astronomers continue to observe and study the Devil Comet, more details about its behavior and possible trajectory are expected to emerge.
