Almost Three Tails for Comet Encke

How can a comet have three tails? Normally, a comet has two tails: an ion tail of charged particles emitted by the comet and pushed out by the wind from the Sun, and a dust tail of small debris that orbits behind the comet but is also pushed out, to some degree, by the solar wind. Frequently a comet will appear to have only one tail because the other tail is not easily visible from the Earth. In the featured unusual image, Comet 2P/Encke appears to have three tails because the ion tail split just near to the time when the image was taken. The complex solar wind is occasionally turbulent and sometimes creates unusual structure in an ion tail. On rare occasions even ion-tail disconnection events have been recorded. An image of the Comet Encke taken two days later gives a perhaps less perplexing perspective.

Hi Google+! I thought I'd upload my 29 favorite images from the 60-day trip I just took with the whole family around the world. We started at the Great Wall of China then ended at the Great Pyramids of Egypt. How fun! Hope you see a few you like... they're all hi-rez and ready for you to enjoy! :)

There's also a cool shot in here from when I flew the quadcopter over Facebook! It's an awesome garden up there for sure.

without communication, there is no relationship; without respect, there is no love; without trust, there is no reason to continue..!
