The commet Elenin is big news for the planet. If there was no danger the NASA poeple, president Obama, and other governments would put the information out there publically for all of us to be educated and entertained by.
This would be big news on TV, the internet, newspapers, public knowledge. However the news is vague, and NASA is evading responsibility for discussing this issue to the public. They obviously don't want to cause panic, job losses, further destroying the economy. Those that worry and do know are pumping the economy up shopping for doomsday. I would say do some preparing as an insurance policy, and so that we all are calmer while rebuilding what ever is left... I am sure, the Japanese feel their apocolypse started early. 30,000+/- people killed, an island move eight feet eastward, and a radiation accident that will take decades to get under control. The planet definitely seems under attack and out of control this year from strange mass animal deaths, earth quakes, volcanos errupting, flooding, draughts, wars and civil unrest happening monthly. Everything just seems to be intensifying and spiraling out of control. At least this years crops will be collected before October and November. Be thankful for that blessing.

Since when is the POTUS responsible for for entertaining people with skywatching tips? Isn't that more of a job for your local weatherman? All of the relevant information about comet C2010X-1 is posted in all the places you would expect it to be: observatory web pages, online astronomy magazines, amateur astronomy blogs....

There is only one cluster associated with Elenin. It rhymes with Buck.
The internet has good and very bad info with it.

Should not be that hard for the pros...
www.ewellobservatory.com...
Also, X1 had been observed 2203 (#obs), since last December...That is alot


Did that look simple to you? There's a reason so many experienced astrophotographers were writing Sky & Telescope to ask how he did it. Notice how he had to photoshop the stars out and put them back in later? Can you imagine what the conspiracy crowd would be screaming if they found out a photo of Comet Elenin had been photoshopped?

As for being so highly observed, it was discovered further out than comets usually are, allowing more time for observations to be made. I suppose you're setting up the usual "do you still beat your wife" situation. If there are a lot of observations, then it must be something terribly important and therefore dangerous, whereas if there were very few observations, then there is clearly a "cover-up," therefore it must be dangerous.

Do you find it even a little odd how NASA has handled this?

Why are they even bothering to alter stereoB to image a "so called" tiny,harmless comet?

Why the disclaimer that it will look BIGGER than it really is??

Not really... they're handling it the same way they handle 2012 rubbish.

It's a target of opportunity. They are responsible for finding out as much about the nature of the Solar System as possible, including ordinary comets. They have observed other comets with SOHO and STEREO. It will not interfere with the primary task of monitoring the Sun.


Why the disclaimer that it will look BIGGER than it really is??


Where have you seen this disclaimer?

NASA scientists have said it will look several times brighter/bigger than expected due to reflection from the sun..

I'll grant you wouldn't lie to me... but the onus to find the quotation lies on you. In other words, "tag, you're it!"

Yeah, but that's not exactly the same thing as:

For those who are too lazy to click on links, this is what the JPL website actually says:


Additional Notes: the orbits shown in the applet are color coded. The planets are white lines, and the asteroid/comet is a blue line. The bright white line indicates the portion of the orbit that is above the ecliptic plane, and the darker portion is below the ecliptic plane. Likewise for the asteroid/comet orbit, the light blue indicates the portion above the ecliptic plane, and the dark blue the portion below the ecliptic plane.
Orbit Viewer applet originally written and kindly provided by Osamu Ajiki (AstroArts), and further modified by Ron Baalke (JPL).

I appreciate your cynicism, but it is perhaps better applied...

I cut & enlarge as best as I know how...It's the only attempted color of Comet Elenin we have on internet.

My question to you out of curiosity is- Why are you still here posting on this thread?
If thats what you really think why are you still following this thread (or visiting a conspiracy site for that matter).
Have an agenda do we?



This thread isnt about me.
This thread is about NASA now believes comet Elenin to be a comet cluster
If you want to create a thread about me, go ahead. Until then, play the ball, not the man.

You said it yourself.



Roll is roll, yaw is yaw, pitch is pitch, turn is turn....

The spacecraft will roll. It will roll 135º. It will not turn.

I generally stay out of the insanity surrounding the Elenin subject because people are going to believe what they want to believe. But I read his post that you're responding to and he's absolutely spot on.


Sometimes, what people choose to believe makes them unhappy. Unhappy people sometimes try to kill themselves. The fear mongering by the "Comet Elenin is an extinction level event" propagandists is like shouting "jump" to someone standing on a window ledge. Shame on you.


The problem with the entire Elenin spectacle is that people are "believing" despite the science showing that they're WRONG.

DW can explain it way better than I can, and I wanted to link to his post but the thought police got to it first. Hopefully he'll come along (this is my request to him) and post again, how this insanity began.
