Are there 2 objects seen on NASA’s STEREO photo of Elenin?

Now that NASA’s STEREO (Behind) spacecraft has rolled around to take a look at Elenin with its wide angle HI-2 instrument, we see this.


stereo.gsfc.nasa.gov...
I see two objects here, or is this an artifact on the lens, lens flare, pixalation, Chinese lantern or swamp gas from Uranus?

The 1/2 second .mpg shows Elinin either passing (likely) in front of this other heavenly body or (unlikely) something orbiting Elenin.
Your thoughts?
edit on 2-8-2011 by Violater1 because: swamp gas

Wow,
LOOK AT THE SIZE OF THAT THING,,... IT MUST BE BIGGER THAN JUPITER..
...ahhem.. sorry couldnt help myself..
sure would be nice to get another planet in view to compare size and distance to put this to rest..

I was expecting to see the whole Elenin cluster... Hard to draw any conclusion from that picture...

The link doesn't discuss either the two objects, an orbiting object, nor if it's passing in front of another object.
Can you please explain what we are seeing?

In the thread Dalke07 mentioned, there is a link to here where a short movie shows that the second object is stationary and not part of Elenin (or so I think..)

Doesn't quite look like a Brown dwarf either (Sleepy, Sneezy or Grumpy for that matter).

Something is bugging me about this comet - where the hell is the trail of ice/debris from this thing? It looks almost completely spherical in shape!

Never mind, I just did some 5 minute research on comets before I made a fool out of myself and saw that there are others like this - such as the comet Holmes in 2007.

I was about to get all conspiracy here.

Much better photo

Judging from my 5 minute comet research I just did from my previous post - that second object may just be a star that is behind the coma, giving it the illusion that it is indeed part of the comet itself.


P.S. I feel like a pro now.

Don't stop your self so fast! Check out this link

and you will see the JPL animation that displays a tail. Something the Elenin JPL is lacking

Like I stated above, more likely another heavenly body. But you are also partially correct about comet 17P/Holmes.
It too was rather dim but later exploded into a bright light.
PS,
Yo Phage, how close will this come to our Moon?

I haven't checked out any other animations lately but are you saying that normally these comet animations have a trail indicator?

Maybe the trail of ice/debris is similar to the one shown in Holmes, where the trail goes out away from the direction of earth?

Here's the photo I was referring too - it looks similar.

17P/Holmes

There we go this link will display the JPL animation of Holmes. Notice the tail.

Why, with an infinite number of fantastic explanations, did you have to choose the most logical?

That's a clear violation of ATS' unwritten Best Practise law.

Occam's razor comes to mind.

However, in the brief .mpg there is no tail.

Lol I've seen quite a few abnormal objects in the sky that were clearly not "normal" - but on some things it's just really easy to figure out. Just common sense really, although a lot of times there seems to be a huge void of it here on ATS sometimes.

The chemtrails smell good today.
