|ISON before fragmentation. |
At this time, the "fanned out" shrapnel covers a tremendously larger area than the non-fragmented comet ISON.
There is also much associated chemical debris in addition to the fragments which are in many sizes.
After the passage near the sun, the trail has fanned out with billions of rocks from the virtual explosion of the nucleus of the comet.
ISON did not pass through the Sun. It was not burned up in the Sun, but being so close to the solar heat, it rapidly expanded and fragmented into millions, if not billions of pieces. Ever try microwaving an egg? This shrapnel has fanned out -possibly 40,000,000 miles wide.
This huge and dangerous debris field will be close to Earth in January 2014. Earth may pass through it. The comet as a whole, was never a threat of hitting Earth, but these space rocks are much more likely to be impacting the planet.
Perfect Animation of Earth Passing Through Comet Ison Debris Trail
This video below shows the scenario of a non-fragmented ISON's debris field being as it was made before the comet's passage near the Sun. Bear in mind a fragmented ISON will follow nearly the same path that NASA predicted for the non-exploded comet and that the fragments will have spread out and the field will be HUGELY larger than the original comet itself, thereby these fragments are of much more danger of hitting Earth - many times.
And what about the chemicals? The carbon dioxide and the hydrogen peroxide in this debris? Other chemicals?
"However, after perihelion, two unexpected things happened to ISON which are reasons why a sizable chunk of ISON can possibly hit earth:
1, After perihelion, ISON broke into several pieces, and it is unknown how large these pieces are. So ISON's tail cannot be assumed to be made of small micron sized dust particles anymore.
2. After perihelion, ISON's tail is no longer pointing away from the Sun, in fact, a portion of its widely spread out tail is angled pointing downwards (with respect to the ecliptic plane). This means when it passes almost directly on top of the earth (with respect to the ecliptic plane), it is possible that a chunk trailing the comet could actually hit earth."
