Holmes: The Largest Body In The Solar System!

Looking at the Jim Hung file, I got some estimated measurements on this "planet." It is obvious now that it is a planet because of its size and it has all of the characteristics that I will ascribe to a planet. The right hand image showing the radial distance between Holmes and the star at a distance of 9.7 arc seconds was the starting point for this set of ideas on the size of the planetTiamat . The left hand picture which is larger is a guide for me at the present time but has not yet been used to figure in the measurements I have come up with on this "thing." The time in this photo and the other set as well if basically the same, 0100UT. at night and also helped me realize that I had to have a starting point that made sense of all of this.

I assumed the planet to be at 150 million miles from us, its closest point being almost 149 million miles now, and so I used this for a point to figure what an arc second would be-72.68 miles,43,611 miles for anarcminute , and 2.617 million miles for a degree. I used the 150 million miles x 3.14 x 2 (radius x2) to get a total 942.0 million miles for a circumference to figure the radian measurements from.

So, the body on the right, the intense hot spot that was in the photo on the upper right, was measured at 9.7 arc seconds from a nearby star in the photo. I realized the size was the same which translated into 9.7 arc seconds x 72.7 miles(rounding off from 72.68) to get the hot spot on the planet that measured approximately 705 miles across just for the explosion that occurred which allowed the rest of the body to be illuminated by its light-at least partly. If you look at the second set of photos, a short 3 frame movie, you will notice that the illumination spreads out with the spread of the gases that cross the face of the planet. The first frame of the Allen1 movie shows only the explosion and a part of the planet that is illuminated by the cloud that is spreading out across the body in a giant wave from the center-the hot spot, which is really a super volcano. Actually, the cloud is gas and debris that is spreading across the body of the planet at a speed of 2.4 km/sec from the center of the explosion.

I wanted to make an important point here about why I think this is an explosion of a volcano. You will notice the spot does not move with respect to the main body of the planet, but does move in the partial rotation shown in the Allen movie. More on that later. This massive explosion does not expand beyond the size that it first started with in its intensity. The basic size of the explosion stays the same in all three frames in theAllen movie. This suggests that something else is "confining" the explosion to a certain size and intensity, a volcano. The continuous illumination of the hot spot is a continuous volcanic outburst of such a magnitude that we have never witnessed on earth or anywhere else in the solar system for that matter. This is where the missing energy is coming from. The massive outpouring of gas and debris is unabated over a long period of time, perhaps due to the tremendous electric forces at work here on this body at this time.

Upon further expansion of the gas and debris across the surface of the planet, more illumination is present on further parts of the body. In frame 2, the limits of the body are reached by the debris and it remains confined to the environment of the planet as evidenced by the "shadows" that occur roughly 1/4 of an inch away from the hot spot. If you take the speed of 2.4 km/sec and translate it into a 24 hour time frame, you come up with a speed of 5250 miles an hour over that time frame and circumference of about 126,000 miles. This works out to a radius of about 20,063 miles out for the shadow seen in the south eastern part of the body in relation to the hot spot in the second photo of Allen1 movie. A diameter of at least 40,000 miles across is seen here, except that the body is rotating about 30 degrees CW and is like an oval or potato as you described it in the previous article. This suggests that the long side is 46,800 miles with the shorter measurement of 35,200 miles if an average is taken of the size(40,000 average roughly).
