WE HAVE AN INTERSTELLER VISITOR COMING OUR WAY
"AN EVENT THE WHOLE WORLD WILL WITNESS"
The Ancients believed that the appearance of comets were portentous. They were considered signs that something either good or bad had happened or was about to happen. Comets have inspired dread, fear, and awe in many different cultures and societies around the world and throughout time. They have been branded with such titles as "the Harbinger of Doom" and "the Menace of the Universe." They have been regarded both as omens of disaster and messengers of the gods.

Comet Atlas is currently crossing Mars’ orbit and is approaching the inner solar system. No one knows yet how big the core of Comet ATLAS (C/2019 Y4) might be. Possibly, it's no wider than a few kilometers. One thing's for sure, the comet's atmosphere is huge. New images from amateur astronomers around the world show that ATLAS's gaseous envelope has ballooned in diameter to ~720,000 km--about half as wide as the sun.
Astronomers report that comet ATLAS's coma (atmosphere) is approximately 15 arcminutes in diameter. 15 arcminutes equals a quarter of a degree. Given Comet ATLAS's distance of 1.1 AU on March 18th, that angle corresponds to a physical size of 720,000 km.
On the scale of big things in the solar system, Comet ATLAS falls somewhere between the sun (1,392,000 km diameter) and Jupiter (139,820 km). It's not unusual for comets to grow this large. While their icy solid cores are typically mere kilometers in diameter, they can spew prodigious amounts of gas and dust into space, filling enormous volumes with their gossamer exhaust. In the fall of 2007, Comet 17P/Holmes partially exploded and, for a while, had an atmosphere even larger than the sun. The Great Comet of 1811 also had a sun-sized coma. Whether Comet ATLAS will eventually rival those behemoths of the past remains to be seen.
Right now, Comet ATLAS is certainly the biggest green thing in the Solar System. Its verdant hue comes from diatomic carbon, C2, a common molecule in comets. Gaseous C2 emits a beautiful green glow in the near-vacuum of space. This green color could become visible to the naked eye in mid-April as Comet ATLAS moves closer to Earth and the sun. The celestial visitor will come closest to Earth on May 23, 2020, at a distance of 72.6 million miles away (116.8 million km). Calculations by NASA/JPL indicate Comet ATLAS takes some 6,025 years to complete an orbit around the sun. Observations show it has a similar orbit to the Great Comet of 1844, which suggest Comet Atlas may be a fragment of the same 1844 comet.
At the time, the comet requires a small or medium-sized telescope, but it may be visible in binoculars very soon! Facing north-northeast at around 9 p.m. local daylight time (8 p.m. if you’re not using daylight time) for all locations.

THIS is an excellent illustration of our relative motion in relationship with our own Star through space)
And, our Galaxy moves through space in pretty much the same way (Lateral motion not shown here).

Albert Einstein's famous equation; E = mc2, established that All Matter is Energy, including us.
(E = energy, m = mass, c = speed of light 2 = squared)
And, every Atom in the Universe is like a 'Perpetual Motion Machine' which is Alive With Energy.
. . . That Includes Virtually Everything Around Us And Everything We See . . .
...And a lot that you don't see...
This shows the orbital and vibrational frequency nature of the atom.
The Protons and Neutrons have been vibrating, and electrons have been
spinning around the neucleus of every atom since the beginning of time,
and each one generates it's own electromagnetic and gravitational field.
So, just where does all this matter get it's perpetual energy from?...
The 'Projected Energy Field' that We, and the Entire Universe are all a part of !...
High energy sub-atomic particle colliders break down atoms into their
most basic fundamental levels thereby releasing enormous energies
and revealing even smaller levels of matter and of realities
An accelerator propels charged particles, such as protons or electrons, at high speeds, close to the speed of light. They are then smashed either onto a target or against other particles circulating in the opposite direction. By studying these collisions, physicists are able to probe the world of the infinitely small.
When the particles are sufficiently energetic, a phenomenon that defies the imagination happens: the energy of the collision is transformed into matter in the form of new particles, the most massive of which existed in the early Universe. This phenomenon is described by Einstein’s famous equation E=mc2, according to which matter is a concentrated form of energy, and the two are interchangeable.
In physics and chemistry, wave-particle duality holds that light
and matter exhibit properties of both waves and of particles.
The 'Double-Slit Experiment' is the seminal experiment that cracked modern science open to quantum mechanics. It’s an experiment based on the nature of light itself. The double-slit experiment was designed to determine if light acted as a particle or a wave. And what was discovered was that light behaved as a wave under most conditions. However, when the motion of each photon was observed, then they acted like particles instead. This caused a bit of a quandary in science. Our previous paradign accepted things as one thing or another, but not both. As either a particle or a wave. However, this experiment determined that the act of observation determined whether light acted as one form or the other. It forced physicists to develop an entirely new model of the universe.
This has suggested that by the very act of a conscious observance of the particles during these experiments had caused a change in the behaviour of the photons to transition between a particle and a wave state. This begs the question: does the Universe exist solely as a 'wave-state', and when we observe the world around us, does our conscious mind actually interpret these waves as matter?

Many religious traditions refer in their scriptures to the existence of something like 'The Book of Life', or 'The White Book', or some other such reference that records our deeds as well as our misdeeds. Could the trail of our movement across the Universe leave a residual imprint much like a 'magnetic tape' would record a voice or music, but strung out across the expanse of space. Could this be the actual 'Book of Life' which is an actual recording of the Universe's history and our journey along our 'ribbon' of space and time?...
Many native american religious traditions believe that even the rocks and the earth around us are alive. Modern science as you can see here actually gives some credence to this view. This, along with the fact that the atom, which is 99.99999...% empty space, establishes that all matter is also actually made up of the same 99.99999...% empty space. Scientists even theorize that we may exist in what is often referred to as a 'Holographic Universe', one that is made up of purely 'projected energy'. Much like a projection on a screen--or in space. Could we actually be part of a 'Projected Universe' in what could possibly even be characterized as living in 'God's Movie'??...
