Hong Kong Photos for As Earth continues on its orbit around the Sun, each day observers are able to see more and more of the stars of Virgo from the top down before the Sun rises. For the comet to remain in the same small area of sky, within Virgo’s belly, its orbital course and velocity would have to work in synchronization with Earth’s. The comet’s relative stability within Virgo’s belly would have had to last for a couple of weeks, to provide suficient time for the lower part of Virgo to be far enough off the horizon to accommodate the cometary baby as it emerged from the womb to be born. What might explain the growth of the baby? At the moment of perihelion, cometary comas are smaller than they were in the run-up to it, or will be in its aftermath, since they are receiving their most intense blast of the Sun at close range. As they subsequently move away from the Sun, escaping the worst of its compressing effect, they grow bigger. Moreover, as productive comets come toward Earth, their comas naturally become larger and larger. These two factors obviously were working together to create the impression that Virgo’s pregnancy was developing normally. Hong Kong Photos 2016.
