Kreutz ‘Comets’ From Jupiter Jet Cause Sunspots
The CC scenario begins with an enormous impact on Jupiter, 6,000 years ago, out of which proto-Venus was born. This very event implies that Jupiter and Saturn are solid, frozen, methane gas hydrate bodies. The denser (1.33) of which, Jupiter, uniformly incorporates most of the heavy elements in the nascent solar system. As discussed in previous posts (search for Jupiter on this site and note the dates), large impacts trigger enormous fusion explosions because of the high surface pressure and the closely packed H and D (plus a small amount of Li) available at the surface less than 1000 km below the cloud tops. The impact which Venus was created resulted in a plasma cloud thousands of times larger than Jupiter itself. A recent, very small example were the delayed ‘main events’ associated with the impacts of the larger SL-9 fragments, which were due to the time required for the mushroom clouds from the surface impac- triggered fusion-explosion to reach the cloud tops.
Ancient texts (Figure 2.) indicate that the Venus impact also initiated a jet of hot gases which initially extended a million kilometers from the impact crater located at 22 degrees South latitude, indicated by the latitude of the Great Red Spot (GRS), which is the top of the plume rising from the ‘fusion furnace’ still burning in the impact crater. Thus the jet has been very gradually diminishing over the last six millennia. The angular momentum expelled by this jet slowed Jupiter’s former rotation period to its current value, ~10 hr*. The tail end of this slowing (ending around 1935) has been measured but is incorrectly interpreted a the ‘drift’ of the GRS (imagined to be a high pressure storm) under the assumption the planet’s rotation, determined by magnetic field cycles, has not changed in the last 4 billion years. The jet material quickly condensed and froze into innumerable rigid bodies, one class of which are the main belt asteroids., which ‘mysteriously’ are rigid, very black, porus bodies (low density) with permanent magnetic fields formed when the small amount of heavy elements, including iron and nickel, became polarized while still within Jupiter’s magnetic field.
As Jupiter spun, a small infinity of these dark bodies were expelled in all directions. Depending on the vector sum of Jupiter’s spin relative to its orbital velocity, the main belt asteroids and possibly the trans-Neptunian objects were formed, But one class, which were ejected when the two velocities (of roughly equal magnitude) were directly opposed, entered highly eccentric orbits which loop close to the Sun. Since these bodies were continuously ejected from Jupiter throughout hundreds of orbits, there are many millions of these bodies comprising essentially an invisible ‘shell’ which encloses the entire inner solar system (Figure 1) north and south of the ecliptic plane, Their orbits gradually decay and strike the Sun causing sunspots, the cycle of which corresponds roughly to Jupiter’s orbital period.
The Invisible Shell Signature
The invisibility of the predicted class of asteroids when closest to the Earth is due to their small size, their established blackness (main belt asteroids), and the fact that they would only be partially illuminated by the Sun when viewed when passing above or below the Earth. The failure to recognize this large class of bodies is the reason that no astronomers in the modern era have recognized the obvious cause of the sunspots – impacts on the solar surface. Cyclic Catastrophism has long claimed that these innumerable bodies exist and will eventually be observed, moreover, they will have a unique and unequivocal ‘signature’. Because all of these bodies were ejected from the crater located at 22 degrees South Latitude on Jupiter and have a perihelion close to the Sun, all those observed south of the ecliptic plane will be moving toward the Sun and just as many, observed north of the ecliptic plane, will be moving away from the Sun.
Kreutz ‘Comets’ Cause Sunspots
Although invisible when above or below the Earth, a few sun grazing ‘comets’ had been observed and given the name Kreutz Comets after Heinrich Kreutz (1880) because they became visible only when they begin to vaporize. Prior to the launch of SOHO (1995) these were imagined to be due to the break-up of two known ‘great’ comets (Marsden and Kracht) because they had similar orbits. But the situation has completely changed, since 1995, SOHO has discovered some 1,500 sun grazing comets, 90% of which are Kreutz. In spite of this, the astronomical community spends 90% of its effort in discussing the two families above. The 90% Kreutz ‘Comets’ are obviously asteroids, identical to the main belt asteroids, formed by the jet from Jupiter. When they approach close enough to the Sun, the water which is the primary constituent of Jupiter (methane gas hydrates are overwhelmingly water), starts to vaporize making them visible enabling their orbital parameters to be calculated. Two things are mysterious to astronomers, the perhelion distances, typically .005 AU – which merely means very close to the Sun, but most importantly inclinations of 144 degrees. This is the astronomers way of describing the unique signature of the bodies from the Jupiter jet shown in Figure 1, all Kreutzs approach the Sun from south of the ecliptic plane. Just as amazing in the current context is the report from SOHO that none of the Kreutz comets have apparently made it past the Sun, having either evaporated or crashed into the Sun. Amazingly, in spite of this SOHO finding, the United States Naval Research Laboratory internet site catagorically denies the obvious conclusion that Kreutz ‘comets’ strike the Sun and cause Coronal Mass Ejections, and by association sunspots:
“A popular misconception is that sungrazing comets cause solar flares and CMEs (coronal mass ejections). While it is true that we have observed bright comets approach the Sun immediately before CME’s/flares, there is absolutely no connection between the two events. The sungrazer comets — in fact all comets — are completely insignificant in size compared the Sun. Even the brightest Kreutz comets observed by LASCO are believed to be no more than tens of meters in diameter (compared to the diameter of the Sun, which is roughly 1,390,000,000 meters!).”
Unbeknownst to the ‘expert’ at NRL, the Jupiter jet asteroids are the same size as the main belt asteroids, for which a recent infrared survey concluded that “ asteroid belt has 0.7–1.7 million asteroids with a diameter of 1 km or more.” Moreover there are hundred with diameters greater than 50 km. The NRL conclusion is based on an incorrect estimate of the size (and composition) based on the intensity of their emissions as they approach the Sun. The Jupiter-jet asteroids contain a mix of heavy elements in a unique, very black, porus, rigid form never seen on Earth. The presence of iron is even indicated by the orangish color of the Kreutz plumes. They are not ordinary water ice. This structure allows them to penetrate the solar atmosphere, impact the surface, splash out CMEs and create sunspots.
Magnetic Signatures of Jupiter-Jet Asteroids
Another signature characteristic of the main belt asteroids, which has been sensed by close passes of probes, is that they have permanent magnetic fields. Another post “Sunspots and the Sun’s Magnetic Field” shows a ‘magnetic butterfly diagram’ and explains how the impacting asteroids influence the solar magnetic field. Photgraphs of sunspots made with polarized filters actually show that they display a consistent N-S orientation opposite to the existing solar magnetic field at the time of impact. This causes a reversal of the total solar magnetic field at each sunspot maximum, proving that these asteroids are permanently magnetized, just like the main belt asteroids. This means that the solar magnetic field originates in a shallow outer layer of the Sun, suggesting that a particularly weak solar cyclic could result in no change of the solar magnetic field.
Is no one listening?
For some fifteen years this blog site has been writing that the bodies formed by the Jupiter jet in the last 6,000 years are impacting the Sun and causing sunspots. Do a search on ‘sunspots’ and note the dates of these publications.
Solar Inertial Movement Effect
In this scenario, the obvious reason for the (~11-year) sunspot period would be the eccentricity of Jupiter’s orbit, aphelion – perihelion (76 X 10^6 km), compared to the Sun’s diameter (1.39 X 10^6 km). However, it is possible that the Solar Inertial Motion (SIM) might contribute to the longer term variations as a result of moving the Sun into and out of this ‘shell’ of orbiting bodies, resulting in the longer term variations in the strength of the sunspot cycle. As explained in the previous post, the impacts of these bodies, formed from the millennial jet on Jupiter ‘splash’ material from the solar surface result in Coronal Mass Ejections and their attendant sunspots. These often impact the polar regions of the Earth and thereby effect climate, longer term variations of which might then be related to the SIM.
This might be a blow to the notion that anthropomorphic CO2 is heating up the planet, but given cyclic catastrophism, there were enormously greater forces influencing the Earth up to 700 BC. However, if the Earth is entering a little ice age, we may need more CO2 to keep us warm. Footnote * In “The Cosmogony of the Solar System”, Sir Fred Hoyle calculated the primordial rotational period of Jupiter from first principles, and came up with 1 hour. Assuming three planets: Mars (with Mercury core), Earth and Venus, have been created from Jupiter since, suggests that the rotational period of the giant planet was increased by approximately three hours by each event. No doubt, the Juno mission will discover the enormous craters created by these three events.
Oh Lord, we could keep this planet warm by friction if the Sun should fail. (unremembered)
