"It is difficult for those to
see whose paycheck depends on them not seeing."
Seemingly, we are about to begin a journey of discovery similar in many respects to that of C/1995 01 (Hale-Bopp). During late 1996 and early 1997, you may recall that the official NASA funded and paid for astronomical community (our tax money) attempted to come down on us like a ton of bricks for asking what, in retrospect, was all the "right" questions. We were less organized in those days than we are now so we're going to state a few things "up-front" before they get any ideas about operating another disinformation scam on us; which they may attempt despite our efforts.
Comet C/1999 H1 (Lee), (C/Lee), is not a periodic comet (such as Halley) nor is it a long-period comet (Hale-Bopp). In fact it really has no "period" at all as it is coming almost straight into our Solar System from interstellar space. This means that C/Lee's "orbit" (period) can only be determined with any certainty (using official NASA approved gravity only celestial mechanics) after C/Lee has reached perihelion (crossed over the Sun), and exited down below the orbital path of the planets (the ecliptic). Gravity only celestial mechanics is the only method of orbital calculation allowed by the Big Bang cosmology priesthood of NASA. Consequently we are already observing a wild-shift in official orbital predictions; initially projecting C/Lee exiting beyond the orbit of Jupiter but, currently projecting the exit near Mars. Why is this happening in the short time span between its initial discovery in mid April 1999, and today some six weeks later? Possibly because all of the official orbital software, running on all of the official super-computers, by all the king's men, is based upon nice behaving little periodic comets like Halley. And to make things even worse the official dirty snowball comet theory states that comets are heated by the Sun and shed (sublimate) their icy dust thereby loosing mass: which in "good-old" Newtonian physics means that their orbits should expand outward rather than tighten inward. Guess what folks? That's not what is happening even at this very moment as C/Lee approaches.
So what is going on? Jim McCanney's Plasma Discharge Theory of Comets is directly opposed to NASA's dirty snowball comet theory. McCanney's theory states that comets are highly charged electromagnetic objects that suck-up space plasma materials in the manner of a giant vacuum cleaner. When comets enter the plasma rich domain of our solar system, and break the solar capacitor (not to different than a bug flying into a bug zapper), the dinner bell rings, and they begin to chow-down big time; becoming brighter (notice how that's already "surprised" them), and heavier. So, if C/Lee continues to brighten due its interaction with the solar capacitor (which creates tail drag thereby slowing it down) and adding material, as is entirely probable under the comet plasma discharge theory, then it is reasonable to conclude that its orbit might substantially arc inwards towards Earth.
The battleground of this matter rests on a simple proposition: Official NASA funded and controlled astronomical science wants you to believe that they know everything that there is to know about all comets and what their behaviors will be, at all times. Furthermore, they will tell you and me everything we need to know when, and if they and their NSA/NSC controllers decide that we need to know. In sharp contrast we, at The Millennium Group, are attempting to state, as loudly as we can, that all is not known about comets, that comets are not dirty snowballs, and consequently they can behave in manners heretofore unseen or predicted by traditional uniformatarian astronomical sciences. Cases in point: Shoemaker Levy 9's breakup, and as yet unexplained gigantic explosions into Jupiter, and Hale-Bopp's perihelion crossing electromagnetic exchange with the Sun which sparked off the totally out of nowhere full halo coronal mass ejection (CME) of April 7, 1997; to provide several examples.
Our motto is "Truth In Science". The truth of the matter about C/1999 H1 (Lee) is that nobody can project its path, and that the observed rapid increase in brightness in connection with the officially supplied orbital modifications provide a strong indication that it's going to progressively bend inwards towards the orbital plane of Earth. We are saying that all possibilities should be considered; now!
We, at The Millennium Group think that the strength and future of this country of ours, as well as that of humankind, rests with a well informed and empowered citizenry. We believe that the difficult questions should be engaged openly, in "broad day-light," for all to see. That is what we intend to do with Comet C/1999 H1 (Lee). This is also our purpose, and we will engage this subject with every ounce of our intellect and being. You can count on it.
From Charles Morris' JPL comet page - The Discovery:
C/1999 H1 (Lee)
IAU Circular 7144 (April 16, 1999) reports the visual discovery of a comet by Steven Lee on April 16.5 UT. The comet was discovered at a star party near Mudgee, New South Wales. The comet is described as 9th magnitude, diffuse and no tail. Gordon Garradd (Loomberah, Australia) gives m2=13.9 - 14.2. He states that the comet has a 3' coma and is slightly elongated towards the north.
Orbital elements and an ephemeris published in MPEC H06 and IAUC 7147 (both 4/19/99) indicate that this is a long period comet with a perihelion date of July 11.4 at a distance of 0.71 AU. Unfortunately, the comet will be on the other side of the Sun and solar conjunction (thus, not visible) around perihelion. The comet will move rapidly north in May and it will brighten to m1=7.0-7.5 before being lost in solar glare. The comet should be visible from both hemispheres in the evening sky by mid-May. (Currently, the comet is only visible from the Southern Hemisphere.) After perihelion, the comet will emerge from the solar glare in mid-August at m1~7.5-8.0 to become a Northern Hemisphere circumpolar object in September (dec reaching nearly +60). The comet will slowly fade.
See the original ephemeris here and we have a COPY HERE just for safe keeping!
As I've said before things seem to come at us in bunches here at the Millennium Group, and we're just like all of you with jobs and families and chores and all the rest that keep most of us busy day in and day out. So I'm going to use a previously used method, and give you the full benefit of seeing the actual interchange of thoughts and ideas that bounce back and forth between the Truth In Science members.
One of the great joys of operating The Millennium Group web page is the people who seem to show up out of no where that are instantly recognizable as kindred souls in the pursute of Truth In Science. James B. Ervin fits that category.
Here is the rapidly unfolding story of comet C/1999 H1 (Lee).
Date: Sat, 05 Jun 1999 22:12:28 -0400
I have been receiving and reviewing your electronic newsletter for roughly 3-1/2 months now. I am very impressed with the content of your material. So much so, that I now feel a real need to avail myself of your staffs brain pool. This, in regard your knowledge of Comet C/1999 H1 (Lee).
Why? Because this comet is beginning to raise eyebrows in certain circles. Therefore, I would sincerely appreciate your take on the following set of questions. I hope you can, or will, provide me with a few sound theoretical answers.
1. This comet will pass relatively close to the Earth during the time period of mid September through early November, according to its current ephemeris. What factors or perturbations are there that could bring this comet much closer to Earth than now indicated?
2. When C/1999 H1 (Lee) enters its perihelion phase around the Sun on July 11, 1999, could a Coronal Mass Ejection or Solar Flare alter its course? If so, by what degree?
3. Thus far, this comet has exceeded all pre-plotted magnitude estimates. While I have read that this is not unprecedented, I'd like to understand why this is so. Can you explain this to me?
4. On June 16, 1999 C/1999 H1 (Lee) will pass to within 1 Degree of the Moon. Astronomically speaking - what distance is meant by 1 Degree.
5. I have heard that C/1999 H1 (Lee) will pass through a newly discovered polar asteroid belt. Is there any truth to this rumor? If so. Where is this asteroid belt located?
Please respond numerically.

We're just getting up to speed on Comet Lee so I'll need to pow-wow with my associates. In the meantime can you tell me how long you've been following the action and where?
Date: Sun, 6 Jun 1999 17:07:31 -0400 (EDT)
For reasons that are purely personal, I have been following reports on C/1999 H1 (Lee) since its discovery in mid April. This, because I believe there is ample evidence to suggest that it will pass much closer to Earth than originally anticipated in early ephemeris plots. Especially, if H1 Lee is hit by a Coronal Mass Ejection during its perihelion passage.
Initially, my concerns were raised when I noticed there were conflicting ephemeris plots posted at the IAU (Minor Planet Center) and at the Japanese astronomy website: http://www.astroarts.com/
So, I decided to plug the ephemeris numbers into Astroarts online orbital simulator. When I did so, I was shocked to discovered that H1 Lee has a high solar (northern) passage over the Earth around November 6/7.
This, of course, begs several questions, not the least of which are:
Why isn't this comet's close passage being reported in the media?
What happens if the orbital ephemeris is altered by an un-anticipated Solar event? ect,ect ...
Thanks for your quick reply,
James B. Ervin

I have done some initial work on this (am working through the night) and holy ** batman** this is looking serious! How long have you known about this Comet (Lee) ? Because this could be the comet that proves the electrical discharge nature of comets I want to be very precise and screen anything going on the page regarding "predictions".
Fasten your seat belts,
Date: Sun, 06 Jun 1999 13:42:30 -0700
I forwarded your email to the group last night and Jim McCanney stayed up all night calculating. The bottom line: He's very very concerned about what he calls a big "curve ball" inbound that could wind up having devastating consequences here on Earth, and if certain factors come into play like the location of the other planets and the moon it doesn't even have to come that close in distance. This comet is the "worst" kind in terms of its ability to disrupt, and interact with, the solar capacitor. That is, its "orbit" is so flat (1) that it's more like a once in the lifetime of the object pass rather than "long period" etc. Consequently, having never interacted with the Sun before, Comet Lee brings with it a high potential for discharging the Solar Capacitor, and I would personally add that it may in fact already be responsible for the very weird actions we have been seeing from the sun over the last several months; ie the appearance that something has been "pulling" energetic charges away from the Sun in the opposite direction of Earth producing large CME's/flares that for the most part have had little electromagnetic effect here on Earth. All of this is to say that after one evenings look see Jim thinks that the "raised eyebrows in certain circles" are very justified. So here's the problem in a nut shell: In order to get a handle on the probable Earth/Solar System affects of Comet Lee, Jim would need access to all of the existing orbital data from day one onward, and then access to the super computers that run the orbital solutions for comets along with the programmers that know how to operate the systems. With this he would then run somewhere in the neighborhood of 10 to 20 different solutions based on his plasma discharge theory for comets which as you've already surmised would have the comet collecting material like a giant vacuum cleaner rather than sublimating off ice particles per the dirty snowball model. This "collecting" will slow down the comet as it slowed down Hale-Bopp which caused Yoemans at JPL to recalculate the< orbit some 47 different times; and the more space plasma materials collected, and the slower the speed, the tighter the orbit and the closer to Earth Comet Lee will come just like H-B.
And several more things need to be pointed out: There is a strong planetary alignment between Earth, Venus, Moon, Uranus, and the Sun in the August 22, 26 range which is within the window of an ecliptic crossing for Comet Lee, along with what astrologers call a "Grand Square" that is an alignment at ninety degrees to the Earth-Sun line of Saturn, Jupiter, and Mars. And August/September are known months of high Sun activity along with being the peak hurricane season in the Caribbean. And if that weren't enough Earth's orbit position will be smack in the middle of the Sun's tail at that time. All of this has the potential of increasing the electromagnetic reaction between the Solar Capacitor, Comet Lee, the other planets, and Earth. And in case you are not familiar with our atmosphere discharge theory of cyclonic storms, the mention of the hurricane season was simply to say if things charge up over this comet then we could expect a very bad hurricane season indeed; which may turn out to be the least of our concerns.
Now to the reality of things: We have about as much chance as a snowball in hell (one of my father's favorites) of getting any kind of cooperation from Marsden at IAU/Harvard, or Yoemans at JPL/NASA. These guys would literally rather die than have their precious "dirty snowball" comet theory be disproved, and it would, and maybe will be, if Jim can get the resources he needs. NASA will simply not allow it to happen as was so graphically evidenced by the outright lies, and deceptions they used, and are still being used, on Hale-Bopp. The fact that lives might potentially be saved with this information will have no effect whatsoever on the NASA/NSA/NSC bunch. That you can count on 100%.
If you have any ideas about how we could come up with the resources needed, we sure would be happy to listen. In fact Jim's ready to jump on an airplane at a moments notice; that is, as long as he doesn't wind up in a NASA cage someplace. I'm also more than curious about the "certain circles" mentioned.

PS: Have you noticed that Marsden left out the ephemeris dates for Comet Lee between June 21 and August 10? Looks like the fix may already be on.
Subject: Orbital hanky panky
Date: Sun, 06 Jun 1999 22:42:02 -0500
I have checked as many sources as I can and the orbits vary so wildly that it is unreal. I bet this comet is moving all over the place, and is simply "fooling" the standard programs that are used to calculate orbits with the given number of sightings. They are all over the board on this, and it will need some very serious analysis to weed out the truth. This is truly a lawless comet, and with the erratic brightening happening it is certain to be far off course every day. This already says something about its internal composition, and I think Earl may be right that the mysterious sun flaring we have been scratching our heads about for the past 6 months just found its source in this comet. This could be a doozy! August is now looking like a time for the first possible trouble.
Subject: Numerous alignments
Date: Sun, 06 Jun 1999 23:13:07 -0500
That Astroart site is great. Although they have what appears to be an incorrect orbit (ie Comet Lee descends below the ecliptic too far out ) but there are some major alignments coming up including a rare Earth, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn alignment in April, 2000. Just a Jupiter alignment can be bad news but this can extend our tail if they connect all the way to about 15 to 20 AU, and including the already existing current sheets from both those giants. That could be a very rude April fools joke . Remember the "killer electrons" from Jupiter that we heard about from NASA. This one could be severe in the wake of Comet Lee. I can get a lot done now with better information but we still have incorrect orbits. I get the feeling that we will not see anymore truthful data come out on this comet from NASA or JPL. I bet this thing is wildly off course, and that they have already locked down the hatches just like they did on Hale-Bopp. Here we go again!

Heads up troops!
Better start asking around. This one looks HOT.
Date: Mon, 07 Jun 1999 05:48:42 PDT
I have heard of Comet Lee, but had no knowledge that is was a threat, so I made a quick call to my contacts in this am, and they are very reluctant to talk with me about Comet Lee. I then went back to the source I talked with last week and he confirmed that Lee is a problem, which has everyone just a little upset at Marsden. At least he is catching some heat from this. The word is Ultra tight security on Comet Lee. We need to get some fixes on this one real quick. I am working on some things, but will probably wind up with nothing the way things look. The Military side of NASA is running this show now, so forget any type of cooperation. Your contact should realize this, maybe he has some influence somewhere, old contact still in contact and so forth.
I would consider this a serious threat, particularly since I believe now that they have known about this situation for over a year. That's right, over a year and possible for as long as 20 months, this thing has more than just potential problem with Earth orbit. From what my source said and the way it was stated, the Moon's orbit could be effected dramatically, and then it may be absolutely nothing; all hype for the Martial Law, and the presidents quest for power. From that I gathered the White House is in full knowledge of the threats and is doing nothing at this point.
I will keep watch for new readiness postures of our military, but with
KOSOVO, this will be a problem. The status changes almost daily with one
unit or another.

I've been able to pull quit of bit out even with the bad or unreliable data available. Besides the mid 2000 alignments already mentioned what really stands out is Sept. 6 1999. This will be a date when the Earth crosses through the cometary orbital plane and Venus is in exact alignment. Almost spooky how exact it is! The comet's wanderings will be primarily within its current orbital plane and if what seems to be shaping up is true regarding the reduction in orbit of the comet (falling inwards towards the sun and slowing down), and given the circa August solar current sheet (solar tail) location, coupled with high CME potential, as well as the post comet perihelion solar increase in activity that is expected--- This entire time frame of August to September, 1999 could be a very serious cyclonic storm, and earthquake, era as well as general other effects such as the opening of the earth's magnetic field to allow high energy particles to stream in to the planetary surface. Oddly enough the lunar alignment will also favor increased potential for earth magnetic field break down at just that time. It is almost as if someone or something had planned this! We really need access to good data and computer processing to determine the possible time frames, and truly locate this comet and its historical path to help predict the future.
We have to locate the episodes of wandering and try to predict thefuture. Too bad NASA has destroyed the Hale-Bopp data that we could really use to help provide the correction factors needed on Comet Lee. We also have to search for follow on comets as they usually come in multiples. We really need resources to go any farther and this is shaping up to be very serious. There is no time to waste, and if the past is any indicator of the future (ie Hale-Bopp) the NASA/JPL boys already have the good data buried so deep we will never see it. I wonder what the Hubble Space Telescope has been looking at lately? We do need resources.
Date: Mon, 07 Jun 1999 07:31:33 PDT
I may repeat myself from earlier, but cannot get a fix on the exact problem at NASA. It seems that there is two strains of thought going around at this time; the negative approach for which Marsden seems to be getting some flack; and one that is more popular that everyone is blowing smoke about the whole deal and there is no problem.
You do realize that this comet is coming from a whole different approach and there is not really any math or computer models set up to project the exact path. They are kind of doing everything in reverse at the moment. One model shows that the comet will continue on its path to wherever out of our system without any type of interaction. the second model, which has everyone upset with the planets and sun interaction. which could swing the comet back in the direction it came from. If this is the case then we do have a problem, but not as severe as they make out. The one degree that they talk about is still a couple of hundred million miles from the moon completely on the other side of our orbit and outside of it.
Apparently, Marsden saw something in is projections that caused alarm. He is not in that much trouble with NASA, because he never releases anything without proper authority, but what he said, I guess, that got everyone up in arms.
This is about all that I can get out of my source for now.
Date: Mon, 07 Jun 1999 16:51:12 PDT
I keep hitting brick walls with all my contacts. I am going to have to have a face to face again, but cannot tell when. At this point none of them want to meet with me. From this I get the picture that things are worse than they want to let on. Maybe Marsden's scenario is more correct than they want us to know. Will keep you posted.
Date: Mon, 07 Jun 1999 23:28:54 -0500
I wonder if our new friend (C/Lee) had anything to do with the recent big solar explosion. Also be advised that we should be on the alert for a follow on comet. These very long period comets have a high probability of coming in multiples. (note that the direction in question may at any time be behind the sun so we need early tracking to prevent any surprises, and a good comet hunter will always look where he already found a comet). This is a historical fact. They may be closely spaced in time or far apart by years. This is explained in my three part comet paper as due to the super nova explosions that create the chunks of matter that become the seed comet nuclei. So they are coming at us from the site of that old explosion, and the fast ones arrive sooner and the slower ones later, but they come from exactly the same location in intergalactic space. So we have to get our contacts eyes open to this.

Earl & Gary;
We always need to be cautious since some comets that were predicted to be huge have faded, but no matter how you cut it the C/Lee will be a highly observed comet due to its proximity in the North American summer skies. It could be as big and bright as HB to observers, and could also develop an observable sunward spike. It could also send discharges through space to the moon, or Earth, proving the ancient legends about Zeus hurtling thunderbolts amongst the planets; just like Velikovsky wrote about. Now how is NASA going to explain inter-planetary lightning coming from a dirty snowball whose materials would "break apart in your hand?"/ We must keep stressing the potential for electrical interaction not magnetic. Magnetic effects are real but they are by products of the true cause-electrical interactions. This could very well affect our magnetic field and Earth based weather. The big key here is the upcoming planetary alignments and that it will be the electrical plasma alignments not gravity that will be the potential harm givers. Most critical is the September 6, 1999 alignment of Venus, and Earth with the new Moon (with the Moon being to the sunward side of Earth) and with the C/Lee coming over and behind us in the non-sunward side. If the comet starts to kick up CME's in that alignment then we should see some truly horrible hurricanes develop in the Atlantic. I have even considered that if the comet orbit is "hooked" enough we could see a close enough encounter that the Earth and moon could capture this thing as a permanent new member of the earth moon system, or worse; at it would flip out into a future collision course with us again and again like Venus did to Mars some 4000 years ago.
Date: Tue, 08 Jun 1999 01:20:37 -0500
Gary & Earl:
I think you have to be very careful about saying this could be Earth affecting but just suggest it. We must stress action at a distance as with H-B, and how this is predicted by the plasma discharge model. I think we have to stress that a "hit" is not the point here because if it misses by an inch in traditional dirty snow ball world then it's just a miss; ie mechanical. In the plasma discharge world a miss of several million miles could be a hit in the sense of electromagnetic interactions. The idea I think should pursue is to relate C/Lee's appearance to what it might do to Earth's weather. Note the Millennium Group's work on weather, and its connection to Solar electric fields. Regarding orbits: The original orbits had the comet going far over Earth to the North at closest approach, and re-crossing the ecliptic beyond Jupiter. The more recent (Marsden) ephemeris has it crossing at 1.7 AU; just about the orbit of mars. More recent information suggests it is curving per the plasma discharge comet model much closer in towards Earth for a relatively close (not necessarily collision) encounter with the Earth-Moon system. I do think what is being put forth my Marsden et al now is too sensationalistic and of course they haven't told the press yet or they have and the press has been shut up once again. We will have to remain in "announcement mode", and see how things develop.
Date: Tue, 8 Jun 1999 08:14:54 -0700 (PDT)
I don't have a problem with avoiding making any statement as to what "will" happen. It is imperative, and by that I mean urgent that people begin to realize that what we are saying is correct and that there are very real threats that exist in this unpredictable universe of ours; at least unpredictable by mainstream uniformatarian scientific standards. Unless we start raising the flag, no one will ever see it. And there is certainly a potential threat of damage to the Earth through the means that Jim has described. All it would take is one good CME jolt, or connection with the Sun, and this comet could cause unprecidented weather changes, earthquakes and/or all of the other various things that Velikovsky as talked about. We need to stop playing the safe game, and start telling it like it is. I think the time for being careful has expired and we need to start issuing some warnings. We need to start seeing the universe that we live in for what it is, and not for what someone is falsely telling us it is.

I have been studying Nostradamus and many other prophecies, including Native American ones for years now. One of the other email lists I manage is for Nostradamus and prophecy scholars. A very important comet is a consistent item throughout the various cultures... this object is supposed to arrive about this time and coincide with a great period of troubles for mankind, including what sounds like an asteroid or cometary fragment impact.
Nostradamus seemed especially bothered by the solar eclipse coming this Summer (especially notable in Europe) and it sounds like he believed that something (the comet?) would be revealed during this eclipse and that people would interpret it in many different ways. Evidently the comet was not thought by him to impact the Earth but rather bring something else into an impact scenario along with the comet's bright transit by Earth. He describes this in a very similar manner to the Bible's book of Revelation and the discussion of "something like a mountain on fire" being cast into the sea and killing 1/3 of everything.
With our mystery guests and a new comet that may be right on track for these prophecies... people who have studied them are a little bit nervous these days and will be until October. Many Nostradamus scholars believe he may have meant September with his reference to "sept mois"... but the window watched by most scholars is from July through September 1999.
Also of note are a number of prophecies from Nostradamus and other prophets involving what I believe to be a direct impact from a solar flare and CME event of massive proportions. Descriptions of "fire in the sky", "solar heat upon the seas", oceans boiling cooking the fish in them, snowcaps melting in an instant, rainbows being seen at night (auroras I think).
Nostradamus uses symbolic references to "Phaeton's Chariot", a myth about a Sun chariot that was driven recklessly across the skies from India northwest through the middle east, north Africa and Europe with the heat from this "Sun Chariot" scorching the ground as it bumped against it, burning up the trees, melting the snowcaps, and boiling the seas where it touches them. This mythological journey of Phaeton in the Sun-Chariot covers the exact regions Nosty describes as suffering from these various effects that sound like a solar plasma event of some sort.
