and tell me that this is not elenin....what is it than?
And if you look this video a few times you can see that it is not broke into 2 pieces but it is the same as before just turned left for some reason-
blast from jupiter or not - it turned left
THANK YOU!!! Finally a link to something other than YouTube! Now, go to the SECCHI site, enter 20110822 , 9 days and "Reverse at end." It will
become much clearer what is going on. I apologize for my confusion, I wasn't sure what date any of this was supposed to have taken place on. That
little fuzzy spot is indeed comet C/2010X-1. It is following a curving arc against the apparently moving background stars. We are watching three
bodies in motion from a body that is itself in motion. The eye tends to fix on on one thing or another in order to make sense of the scene. The eye
jumps from Mercury to a nearby bright star, or from the comet to Jupiter, or from a bright star to the comet. Each time, it "fixes" all the relative
positions differently. In other words, Elenin does not make a sudden left turn; it has been sweeping gently "upwards" from left to right. As it
passes a bright star, we notice that it seems to be shifting relative to it. In other words, it's a sort of optical illusion caused by trying to keep
the eyes on too many balls. As I have pointed out, if it did change its trajectory, it would not be appearing in the sky at its predicted
co-ordinates. No-one has reported this.
