Comet 46P Wirtanen and Varahamihira

By Dr Manish Pandit

At the outset, let me thank @pranasutra on Twitter for bringing this comet to the forefront of my attention.

Varahamihira lists a peculiar comet in Brihat Samhita which rises near Taurus and then goes on to bisect the Saptarishi mandala. This comet is said to be associated with doom and it’s effects can extend to around 18 months from when it is seen.

46P Wirtanen is a comet which was seen as arising near Taurus in Dec 2018 and then proceeds to the Saptarishi mandala in 2019 Jan and bisects it. This can be seen here:

The point at which comet 46P arose in Dec 2018 is near Taurus.., seen here:

The comet travels all the way to the Saptarishi mandala in Jan 2019.

The second part of the prediction

Brihat Samhita makes the entire prediction quite clear. In my next blog post I will describe a different phenomenon for a different year but with similar results.
