i love the quote from Elenin himself:


“It was somewhat funny at first, and I even surfed the internet to see what they say, but now I’m scared to do it. I’m really irritated. I’m really disappointed that this nonsense appeared in the Russian segment of the web,” the astronomer told RIA Novosti news agency.

According to Elenin, conspiracy theorists go as far as claiming that he is a front firm for NASA or other government agencies, who try to put a lid on the information about the alleged upcoming disaster. “I’ve seen discussions about what Leonid Elenin actually means. ‘Ele’ is ‘extinction level event’ and ‘nin’ is Nibiru in November,” the scientist said.


doesn't that just say it all?

It's about halfway through the article, but broken apart between a couple of paragraphs, not fully put together like the quote here.

The next line of that quote is important:

The Elenin comet is to flyby Earth at an estimated distance of 35,000 kilometers in mid-October. You would need good binoculars or a telescope to see it harmlessly pass and go away.


that's the difference, it's going to harmlessly pass by, like many others. The doomwishers think otherwise and are attributing so much to this comet it's a joke.

Considering the comet apparently has an 80,000km coma, yeah I think it would be very hard to miss at that distance

I think this must be a typo, I think it should say 35,000,000 kilometers. You would think that they would copy check to get that right, if the whole article is written to debunk the rumors.

Middle of the article, formatting got screwed when I cut and paste, I didn't edit or trim it at all.

Comet Elenin should be at its brightest shortly before the time of its closest approach to Earth on Oct. 16 of this year. At its closest point, it will be 35 million kilometers (22 million miles) from us. Can this icy interloper influence us from where it is, or where it will be in the future? What about this celestial object inspiring some shifting of the tides or even tectonic plates here on Earth? There have been some incorrect Internet speculations that external forces could cause comet Elenin to come closer. "Comet Elenin will not encounter any dark bodies that could perturb its orbit, nor will it influence us in any way here on Earth," said Yeomans. "It will get no closer to Earth than 35 million kilometers [about 22 million miles]. "

Yup, 35 MILLION, Km, 22 million miles, must be a mistake in the OP article.

Yup, roughly 380,000 km away. Elenin will pass by SAFELY at 35 MILLION kilometers away. Honda is actually a closer pass.

I honestly hope that the 35,000km statement is a typo. Becuz thats roughly 22,000 miles and thats where our geosync'd satilites orbit at that distance. If a mother truckin comet passes that close we r gonna be in for one helluva ride!! If it is true, atleast we'll have a pretty light show before we get bombarded with meteorites! Im reminded of the line from a song. Its the end of the world as we know it, and I FEEL FINEEEEEE!!!!
