Probably need Phage to confirm this but....
I'm pretty sure that you can not see Elenin from Soho because of it's alignment. I'm not going to call "PropheticSeerChannel" a douchebag con artist....
you know what? Yes, yes I totally am.
PropheticSeerChannel is a douchebag conarist and these stupid youtube videos about a harmless comet, that you probably won't even be able to see, are getting old.

Phage, I don't know. I guess I can say that I am on the cusp at 50 - 50 though. I am not entirely convinced that it's a lens flare, just as I am not entirely convinced that it's not. ~SheopleNation
Elenin is not a comet. It has no comet tail. It is moving far too slowly to be a comet. It is moving in the plane of the ecliptic. Comets never move in the plane of the ecliptic. It has gravity enough to have caused earthquakes at times of alignment. Earthquakes in Chile and New Zealand in 2010, also the huge earthquake in Japan on 11 March 2011. Comets do not possess mass enough to trigger such earthquake activity. Back in December 2010 as Elenin passed by Saturn it caused a massive volcanic eruption to erupt on Saturn and disturbed the atmosphere of Titan the earth size moon of Saturn. Comets do not have sufficient mass where by with which to trigger such phenomenon. So we must conclude from the evidences that Elenin is in fact a "Rogue Planet". In fact observations provided below show us that Elenin is actually three objects. Two with diameter of approximately 80,000 kilometers each, with the third object having a diameter approximately that of the Earth.
1876 – Observed by Asaph Hall. He used the white spots to determine the planet's period of rotation.
1903 – Observed by Edward Barnard.
1933 – Observed by Will Hay, comic actor and amateur astronomer. Until recent times the most celebrated.
1960 – Observed by JH Botham (South Africa).
1990 – Observed by Stuart Wilber, from 24 September through November.
1994 – Studied by ground-based observers and the Hubble Space Telescope.
2006 – Observed by Erick Bondoux and Jean-Luc Dauvergne.
2010 – First observed by Anthony Wesley.

Apparently their planet x travels at 5 times the speed of light. Seeing as anything with mass cannot reach the speed of light without requiring unlimited energy I find it impossible.

Here's a video where I stabilized the star field to highlight Elenin's motion. You can see it's following an apparent parabolic path. The first run through just shows a zoomed-in portion of the HI1 images. The second run through highlight's Elenin's position against the star field every few frames. Again, I suggest clicking through and watching in full-screen HD:

He is well known for logical inputs to these forums.
People like to see what he says.. why the problemo?
The videos I posted a few posts back here show the same "ring" of light from Jupiter both exiting the frame (with an expanding "ring") and entering the frame (with a contracting "ring) in the past. That establishes that the flash happens whenever Jupiter is at the edge of the frame. So yes, it's a coincidence that Elenin was at its furthest point to the right roughly when the reflection from Jupiter reached it in the image.

EDIT: Just watched it again after reading Phage reply and I'll be danged if there's not a significant push to the left after the flash
If it's coincidence it's a really good one.
