Wow, Honda looks close on Aug. 15th. Will it be below us or above us, if that makes any sense?

At close approach Honda will be 0.06 AU (5.6 million miles) from Earth.

Thats not Elenin,, leave it too Nasa to get it wrong,, thats THIS:

Otherwise known as:


G1.9+0.3 a :

Category Supernovas & Supernova Remnants
Coordinates (J2000) RA 17h 48m 45s | Dec -27° 10' 00"

Thank you.

I've done my best to distance myself from government agencies, including NASA, as they tend to spread a lot of disinformation. My own research indicates that Elenin is indeed a comet, not a 'cluster'.

The fact is most professional astronomers don't care about Elenin. When you've seen one comet, you've seen 'em all. Instead Hubble is being used to search for such things as dark energy and dwarf galaxies.


And yet NASA is going to the trouble of turning stereo to picture Elenin??

Why are they bothering.?

I dont know,, nothing has gone too "tech. Spec." on this one,, there is an unknown "element" out there,, thts fugging the figures,,,at least thats how i see it,, and im convinced ,, the unknown fugger is what Soho took a picture of,, either by mistake or on purpose,, but i am saying its G1.9+0.3, and its playing hell !
Because ITS A REMNENT,, possably of dark matter,, which if gets close enough to the sun might ingnite,, its possible , but it would need more M ass to Stabalize its Density,, which Comet Elenin with its Ort Cloud buddies , who are also getting "picked up" by its "influence", just might provide,, at which point we have too suns,, everything stabalizes,, and everyones happy.

Amen.

Well that other paper on Scribd theorizes that Nibiru follows Elenin by about a Year (originally 2 years but the speed increase from the pull of our sun supposedly increases it's speed...and lowers the arrival by about a year.

Also the theory that the Mayan calendar actually ends this year because of how many times we have changed our calendar and we have not allowed for these changes when correlating the Mayan with our calendar.

Who knows, WE AWAIT THE DATES!

Yes why are they bothering?

Whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

STEREO B is not being "turned" to picture Elenin. It will remain pointed at the Sun as it always is.

When Elenin enters its field of view the spacecraft will be rolled in order to give the sensors different viewing aspects. This will allow a certain amount of analysis of the comet and its composition.

What? A comet cluster?

That's pretty scary isn't it?

I wish it was spaceships, sheesh!

Have you seen this video? She addresses that same topic too, based on a paper submitted to Cornell University that discusses this subject. The paper was written by a doctor of physics and a professor, if I remember correctly, and based on that level of wisdom, it must be true......based on her account. Take it for what you will, but there are some interesting facts that are mentioned, along with some potentially not-so-factual information. Anyways, check it out:



You know, professors, physicists, and "doctors" can be wrong or even insane sometimes. If you really think about it, everything we "learn" may be wrong, just think about all the different topics throughout history that have been proven incorrect or replaced in the scientific world. Credibility is quite often should be taken with a grain of salt.

On topic, it doesn't seem that NASA actually had anything to do with these statements about this "cluster" gut if you know anything about physics it is not farfetched to hypothesized that a comet could be in a cluster as we have experienced plenty of comets with a debris field following behind."rocks" in space can be captured by larger objects and seem to follow. These facts are not necessary to release to the public as too many idiots would begin to over react and twist the info into something it is not. It may very well be a cluster but it is most likely not consequential or damaging.

Phage, your comment sure sounds like they are turning it to me..
Rolled, turned, whats the difference


Why are they bothering?
It's not like NASA has bothered to allay public beliefs in the past.

Help me with this terminology "comet cluster".

Have we ever SEEN a comet cluster in human civilization ( past 10,000 years) ??

I've never really heard this term employed before in relation to describing comets.

I just don't like the sounds of it at all.

Wasn't the Mayans, but the people trying to interpret their calendar.

1) 12/21/2012 signifying an end to the linear time calendar of the Mayans, but a date not associated with any synchronistic cycles and therefore may not reflect over to anything noteworthy in human experience. But the date is well-known, well-calculated, and well-anticipated. It is a certain date of uncertain significance.

2) 10/28/2011 signifying an end to the synchronistic super-calendar devised by Calleman. It carries the advantage of being based on cycles that correlate with human experience, that predict the timing of future phases of experience that can be tested. On the other hand, even if the principle of Calleman’s calendar is valid, the chosen end point is not absolutely certain. It is an uncertain date of certain significance.

The satellite has three control axes. Yaw, pitch and roll. The yaw axis moves the satellite parallel to the satellite's orbit (pretty much the same as the Earth's orbit). The pitch axis is perpendicular to that. The roll axis rotates the satellite.

In order to turn the satellite to image Elenin a yaw or pitch maneuver would have to be executed. This would mean turning the satellite away from the Sun. If they did that it would indeed be a big deal but they aren't. They will be performing a roll maneuver, something that is done routinely. It is no big deal, no bother, requiring no real expenditure of energy or requiring any interruption of the gathering of solar data. It's a freebee which does offer the possibility of learning a little bit more about comets. It's a good opportunity because the comet will be passing quite close to the satellite.
