Ok disregard my last post, I think it meant 0.17au to the sun.

Still, I have found a list of the closest known comets to pass by Earth.
So this one at this point would be way down on that list.

Distance Date (TT) Permanent designation (AU)

0.0151 1770 July 1.7 D/1770 L1 (Lexell)
0.0229 1366 Oct. 26.4 55P/1366 U1 (Tempel-Tuttle)
0.0312 1983 May 11.5 C/1983 H1 (IRAS-Araki-Alcock)
0.0334 837 Apr. 10.5 1P/837 F1 (Halley)
0.0366 1805 Dec. 9.9 3D/1805 V1 (Biela)
0.0390 1743 Feb. 8.9 C/1743 C1
0.0394 1927 June 26.8 7P/Pons-Winnecke
0.0437 1702 Apr. 20.2 C/1702 H1
0.0617 1930 May 31.7 73P/1930 J1 (Schwassmann-Wachmann)
0.0628 1983 June 12.8 C/1983 J1 (Sugano-Saigusa-Fujikawa)
0.0682 1760 Jan. 8.2 C/1760 A1 (Great comet)
0.0787 2006 May 12.4 73P/Schwassmann-Wachmann
0.0839 1853 Apr. 29.1 C/1853 G1 (Schweizer)
0.0879 1797 Aug. 16.5 C/1797 P1 (Bouvard-Herschel)
0.0884 374 Apr. 1.9 1P/374 E1 (Halley)

Thanks for that list pazcat.

I guess we will have to wait and see if it works it's way up the list. I am thinking it will.

Either way it should be a great sight and something that no one on this planet will see again for possibly thousands of years!

Comets can lose bits and cause their own debris trail!

All I have managed to find so far is various estimates for the sizes the can be such as "ranging from a few hundred meters to tens of kilometers across" from the Wikipedia article I linked in the post above to "anywhere from a mile across to 50 miles across" from www.astronomycafe.net

Comets are most likely not `dirty snowballs`. Its been proven , but of course NASA will take another ten years to admit this. Here is a u tube video made by ATS member mnemeth1 .

You should be aware the this comet could bring debris with it and we will pass through the debris trail – if it exists – around the 6th November 2011. Could this new long period comet (?) be the origin of the stories of Nibiru?


If so, would there be time left for 'John Major Jenkins' to excuse himself to 'Carl Johan Calleman'

This came up my mind immediately after reading it...

could this be the comet nostradamus was refering to, when it passes, it will bring hunger thirst and famine?


Mabus will soon die, then will come,
A horrible undoing of people and animals,
At once one will see vengeance,
One hundred hands [powers], thirst, famine, when the comet will pass.

MABUS is SUDAM in the mirror, who waskilled by bush....

Many thanks for posting that and reminding me. I have been very impressed with the electric universe theory and meaning to find time to read up on it. mnemeth1's videos were very good and raised some interesting questions about the roles of comments and CMEs.

Could a big one cause a disastrous CME for us? Mm, more reading required!

i predict a new light show for years to come add a new meteor shower date to the calendar possibly some small chunks managing to make it through the atmosphere dont think there will be anything like the arizona crater or anything

I hope you are right about chunks not getting through.

I had not considered a meteor shower for years to come aspect. I wonder if that could happen?

Mabus cannot be Sudam as you say if we have a real person with the name Mabus, Ray Mabus, and he has been announced as the "Son of the South". Time will tell though, but Saddam was nothing and is nothing forever more; a tyrant at best.

Personally I have never felt that Holmes was the Blue Star, the reason for this is that the Blue Star is for everyone to see, not just those with telescopes, and certainly not by way of photographs; literally the World will witness the Blue Star Kachina personally with their own two eyes.

What I find pretty interesting is how close the date is to the Calleman version of 2012... who believes that based on calculations, the 5th sun of the Maya would end on October of 2011. To have a comet coming within a month of that date makes things more interesting.

I haven't seen anyone mention yet how large it is or what it's made from....

MABUS in the mirror would be SUBAM not "SUDAM" and no- Bush did not kill Saddam.

Not close to - spot on! Don't forget that the closest approach as currently calculated is October the 18th and the time we are directly behind the debris path would be November 6th.

Composition - probably not ice if the video posted by bluemoone2 here is anything to go by - and I think it is.

Size? Probably too early to tell yet.

Wow, that is spot on!

Thanks for that extra info as well.

Going by the distance this is expected to currently pass, I don't expect that we'll see much of anything more than a few extra shooting stars. There are many objects that pass much closer to us.

I'll be waiting to see if someone identifies it with a 3600 year orbit! That would be quite remarkable and revealing....

Hey Puterman
SandF
Maybe this is why Chuck Norris was practicing on tankers last summer
Well, its good to know that if worst comes to worst we can get Chuck to do some pushups...
20 will prolly get us out of the way,
Lord knows,
Chuck is so tough he won't move...
the planet will

I thought this sort of job was down to Bruce Willis? Armageddon and all that? Of course he cannot get injured by anything either.

Sit back, relax and watch the end of the world, coming to a planet near you!

(That is not a prophecy by the way!)

S&F my good man


I am going to go through all the info you have put into this thread as i find it very interesting. So this is due for November this year!

I will be glued to your thread (and to the sky come oct/nov). Keep up the good work and i wait with anticipation for more information on comet Elenin

Ok this is kinda out there but the first thing that popped into my mind when i saw this was, Remember that Movie Deep Impact? the Cover up for the story was called ( Ele ) Eleain ??? Extinction level event.

Wow, two pages in and no Steriologist to inform us that this is not Nibiru, theres no need to worry this is all very normal move along.

Extinction Level Event, Niburu Is Near?!

Lol, no seriously, it's not Niburu, it's just a comet, and hopefully it will put on a good show for us and perhaps even a new yearly meteor shower!
