Elenin in Stereo

Hi Everyone

I have been viewing NASA's Stereo A (Ahead) satellite and, based on the 20 degree Angular Field of View of the HI-1 telescope, Elenin should be in view, coming from the left hand side at an angle of inclination to the ecliptic of 7 degrees.

You can see what looks like a comet at the left hand side, at:

tinypic.com...

stereo-ssc.nascom.nasa.gov...

Just Select Ahead HI1, select a resolution and grab the last 50 images.

The only problem is that the angle of inclination is around 20 degrees to the ecliptic, not 7 degrees.

Is this Elenin?

If it's not Elenin, would it be visible via Stereo A?

Cheers

JS

Mind grabbing a screenshot and posting? I dont have a clue how to navigate through what you posted.

Look forward to seeing it!

watch the last 700 on BEHIND COR2 also!


crazy stuff

I have been looking at what you described.
Very Fascinating to say the least.
If that is Elenin, it is very close & I would think we could see it about now, since the photos were taken in late April & early May.
I think it might be that comet that hit the sun recentlly tho.(just a guess-no authority here)

The other stereo photos are also amazing(more so if I actually knew what I was looking at I'm sure)
On Behind HI1 it looks like maybe Mercury or something. Can't really tell.

Cool site, thanks for the post.

Interesting. You might have something there.

But like you say, it seems like it is too low to be Elenin. STEREO A is now above the ecliptic so the apparent angle of Elenin should be even less than 7º. I also wonder if it would be bright enough to appear.

That's Mercury on COR2

I don't think you're seeing Elenin. Elenin's apparent angle to the plane of the Sun's rotation from STEREO A would be less than 1° right now.

Also, being on the far side of the Sun, three times as far from from STEREO A as the Sun is, Elenin would have a magnitude around 15.5. The limiting magnitude on the HI instruments is 8. So Elenin would be far too dim for the HI to pick up.

Thanks for that.

I wasn't sure what magnitude the HI instruments could pick up.

Cheers

Here's an animation I made showing the view from the HI on STEREO A with known comets and major features labeled. It then overlays the actual HI image, and then put the labels on the image, so uyou can see everything lines up. The line through the center is ecliptic. Elenin is on the left side, just south of ecliptic.

Click on the image to get a bigger version.



The comet you found is a new one.

At last, all those random dots make sense. Much appreciated this end. Great work nataylor.

If he just found a new comet, shouldn't he name it?

Sure, if he's the first to report it.

Info on reporting comets found by STEREO has be found here: sungrazer.nrl.navy.mil...

Wow ! Congratulations on the comet find! Now act quick and let the proper authorities know before someone else claims the find. What are you going to name it?

Call it "Comet Jumpspace" so we can start a rumor it's really a "stargate!"

Hey all,
Just to throw this in the mix. A recent youtuber put a vid out. I am sure that one of the videos under Envylife904's channel has a mention to observe the Soho cams as a comet should be showing up soon. I am at work so i can't see the vid at the mo to confirm which one it is. I believe the Video is the one titled "ELEnin Dwarf Star Warning September 26, 2011" I believe there is a thread on here about that vid.

Thanks

I was going through the recent reports, because people are pretty quick to report this. But I couldn't find anything, which made me curious. So I checked the -high-resolution version of the pictures and I found out why. That's not a comet, it's just four close stars that blend together in the lower-resolution version:
