Well, that curve at perihelion sure does indicate something completely different to me. And that Curve is pretty tight. Look at the orbit of Pluto and compare the two. If Pluto's orbit is 284 years, the orbit of Elenin could be 10 - 12x that based on its curve. I am not a mathematician, so I will leave that to someone else to calculate for me. I am able to look at two ellipses and see the distance they cover. I just don't know the equations to accurately calculate them. So if anyone wants to jump in, please do so.
In the modern world that we are living in, Elenin is simply a comet, but since the beginning of time, space objects have fascinated mankind, inspiring stories that have been passed down for millenia. …
To dismiss these ancient stories is to dismiss the majesty and complexity of the planet, solar system, galaxy, and universe that we live within.
The fact, though, that conspiracy and end-of-the-world chatrooms are abuzz with tales of human annihilation does not discount the reality of this space object. It is real.
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory has an interactive diagram of Elenin’s orbit with the known information about the object plugged into variable positions. What is known is that Elenin is scheduled to make its perihelion turn around the sun in August of this year . Shortly after making its u-turn, Elenin will perform a fly-by of Earth, coming within 21,000,000 miles of Earth. As a point of reference, the moon is roughly 240,000 miles from Earth.
… It should be clarified here that the exact position of Elenin as it passes by Earth is still unknown, so people who say it will hit Earth are just as inaccurate as those that are saying it will not.

Time and time again ATS has become more like house of horros show, yes every time somebody comes with "inside info" "inside source" "my gut feeling" and so on it has been proven every time always it just a bunch of crap, and people seems here love crap! ATS has become to myself a laughing stock , no real info , some good strange data but nothing fact nothing from real sources, just some bunch of people with "friends" in the inside that at the end always fail.
Sorry pal but if you cant mention your source or provide good data from it then this threat for me is just like always in ATS crap crap crap crap.
I have to agree, I personally do not agree with much, but i have to agree.
If from inside sources we talk about i can kill your threat easily, i too have a bigger source than yours, and this source tells me you are just spilling crap, yeah my source its bigger, wiser and all knowing and never its wrong. My source is God and it told me your source is just crap.
And because here in ATS believe every bull...# its trown around then they will believe me too!
ATS has become so low in standards these days...

It's worth mentioning that all astronomy forums and blogs fail to mention anything about elenin hitting the earth or anything else. All they talk about is where it is and how exciting it will be to watch.
This again proves that the PTB only fools smart people.

So, this is just scary to say the least. Are there any estimates on the size of Elenin?

It's really very funny... ran a search, just for the term Comet Elenin over at JPL and got a return of 0.
I Guess JPL, who normally has ALOT to say, about ALOT of things, has nothing to say relating to Comet Elenin. Really, very funny....
