Please listen to AshOnMyTomatoes. C/2010 X1 Elenin is a normal comet, moving in a normal, highly elliptical solar orbit. It is not a brown dwarf. It
is not a star. It is a comet. How many times do I need to say this before you understand that I actually know what I am talking about? The guy who
made that video at the start of this thread is talking CRAP. There haven't been any magical alignments between Earth, Sun, and Elenin that can be
associated with major earthquakes. The slight changes in orbital characteristics over time are due to updated calculations (more observations spread
over an increased arc result in more accuracy).
It's also worth noting that "perigee" and "perihelion" are frequently mixed up by Elenin conspiracy buffs. For the record....
Perigee = closest approach to EARTH
Perihelion = closest approach to SUN
