Alright, I know there is a lot of talk here and elsewhere about the comet Elenin in regards to what it is or is not, and like all good conspiracies
there has been a fair amount of evidence to support both sides of this argument. So, let me make this clear from the start; this thread is not
intended prove any facts one way or another. It is simply an attempt to interject some common sense on some interesting theories that may or may not
have been thought of before.
For instance, the idea that Elenin is a much larger object than reported is often refuted by those who question why it has had no effect on the larger
planets in our solar system. To answer this effectively you must be aware of the planetary positions in relation to the comet. Neptune, Uranus, and
Jupiter are all on opposite sides of the Sun, and have been for several years. Jupiter could have potentially been affected by it, but it would have
been sometime in 2002 or 2003, and it’s effects would have been minimal and virtually undetectable at best. Saturn, on the other hand, would have
felt a much greater influence from the supposed “death star” between 2007 and 2008 as it passed through Elenin’s path.
So, what happened on Saturn during that period? Two reported, observable events. One being an unusual Aurora at the northern pole (above that bizarre
hexagonal shaped storm), and the other being a five month long electrical storm in the upper atmosphere. Neither are definitive proof for sure but,
interestingly enough, both were active around the same time in which the planet was passing in front of Elenin.
Surely if Elenin could effect the internal heating process in the lower atmosphere or manipulate the magnetosphere of this giant planet in such a way,
then it’s smaller moons or even it’s famous rings would stand no chance against it’s gravitational pull. Well, being that any major observations
of the Moon’s of Saturn were only made possible through the Cassini missions, most geological or atmospheric events there are considered “new
discoveries” and not associated with passing objects.
Similar to Elenin’s effects on the outer planets, it’s mark on the smaller inner system is, for all intents and purposes, undetectable due to a
lack of complete understanding about how each individual planet geologically, atmospherically or physically reacts to an outside forces. Any observed
changes are considered “anomalous but normal”. Here on Earth, we are able to closely monitor those conditions for any detectable amount of change.
Thankfully, the catastrophic changes are few and far between.
Which brings us to the “alignment theory”. Fast forward to February 27, 2010; the date of the 8.8 Chilean Earthquake. Elenin, Earth, Sun, (and
Jupiter way in the back) are all lined up. Coincidence? Maybe, maybe not. Lets check the next alignment and see what happens. September 4th 2010,
Elenin, Sun, Mercury, Earth, all in a row. Christchurch, New Zealand, a 7.1 magnitude earthquake strikes at 4:35 am. Suspicious? I’m sensing a
pattern. March 11, 2011, Japan. Elenin, Earth, Sun; need I say more. The next alignment will be September 27, 2011 when Elenin passes between the
Earth and the Sun. All we can do is wait and see. It’s certainly not condemning evidence as there are earthquakes world wide on a daily basis,
ranging from the unnoticeable to the devastating. So blaming them on cosmic alignments could prove to foolish in the long run.
How about the supposed “discoverer” of Comet Elenin? Is he real, is he a fake? Not sure, but his name, Leonid Elenin is uniquely interesting.
Leonid, as in the Leonid Meteor Showers. Although a common Russian name, his parents cast a bit of foreshadowing for a future astronomer. Also
interesting to note is that the Comet is expected to come from constellation Leo for which the Leonid Meteors are named. The surname Elenin, or ELEnin
as some people like to write it, does coincidently contain those infamous three little letters synonymous with Extinction Level Event, but so does
about a million other words. I just can’t help but think of all the trouble one would have to go through to create such an elaborate ruse. Not to
mention all the fuss its caused. I mean, if this guy is a fake, then why not just name it after the object’s real discoverer, and no one would
Last but not least is that tiny little issue of public information. Oh, we have NASA cover ups, amateur astronomers being silenced, documents and
files being scrubbed, etc. etc. etc. Really? This is getting out of hand people! To what end are these means justified? If this comet is, as NASA
claims, wimpy, then would it not be their responsibility to quell any delusions of grandeur otherwise? On the contrary, if this is the comet of the
prophecies, then would it not also be their responsibility to warn the public, barring the consequences of mass panic? Or perhaps this comet is
nothing more than smoke and mirrors meant to hide the real threat. An internet whirlwind to distract us all from the real planetary killer looming
beyond our atmosphere . . .
Awe heck folks! It’s all just speculation, until the day comes, with or without fail.
Stay thirsty my friends!
