Obviously, let me see if I can find the postedit on 9-8-2011 by AzazeI because: (no reason given)
To be honest a lot of your posts have been rather inflammatory and emotionally heated. You are only presenting this evidence because I directly requested you to do so. With your amount of posts I think you should show a bit more respect and take it down a notch. But thanks for your help, for now my opinion is asteroids.
What are you talking about? i'm helping present evidence that shows that this is clearly nothing more but a hoax

Ok. Not hot pixels. Asteroids
Ok, now we can start worrying. Thanks brother Phage, your capacity to correct yourself in public is greater than your vast knowledge.

Beginning August 1st 2011, we started to roll the STEREO-B spacecraft for two hours per day to observe Elenin. We were unable to maintain this roll angle (~135-deg) because it negatively impacts the science return from all the other instruments on STEREO which rely on the 0-degree roll angle. Why did we even have to roll at all? Here's a good analogy: If you look through a cardboard tube, you can easily see a crowd of people 30ft away while missing a person standing 12-inches to your right. That was STEREO's problem -- the comet was so close, we would actually miss it at our nominal roll angle! So we are rolling the spacecraft and are observing it... successfully!
On the left is the first set of images taken of the comet on August 1st, 2011 (click the image for a bigger animation). You can easily see the comet moving against the background star field on the center-right of the images. (Sirius is the big bright star that is 'bleeding' down towards it, and M42 and the constellation Orion can be seen on the left.) This small fuzzy ball is what all the fuss has been about. It's clearly not a "second Sun", or a brown dwarf, or giant super-comet, alien spacecraft, or any other such fanciful object. It's just an ordinary little comet. It doesn't even have much of a tail visible -- just a nice central nucleus and classic diffuse coma. It is somewhat reminiscent of Comet Holmes from a few years back, but is substantially smaller than that object.
