Do you realize how big that actually is? The circumference of the moon is 10,000 km and the circumference of the earth is 40,000 km. There is no way elenin is that big.
It’s diameter exceeds 1 minute of arc, or 80,000 km! It is possible that such a rapid growth of the coma is associated with the apparent superposition over it of the comet’s dust tail, which after opposition, still remains invisible to the Earthly observer.

Even if it was that big. which it isn't, it's not going to hit earth and there are no UFO's in it's tail.

How could such a small object attract so much ice and water? After a which wouldn't the water dissipate?
