This was brought to my attention in another thread, posted by Anotherson. The video is by utube user TheMaverickSparton.
Any astronomers on here? What do you make of this? Could an explosion of that size change Elenins obrit?
Apperently this happened around August 25th, 2011.
What do you all think?

Why not add your opinions to the existing thread about this? We have more than enough Elenin threads to add to.

Oooops, sorry, did a search before posting, didn't search for lens flare though.

An explosion from jupiter? Strange. That looked like some kind of spatial shockwave emanating from jupiter or near it.

It's lens flare. More accurately, internal reflections. It happens whenever a bright object enters or leaves the field of view of the Heliospheric Imager.

Lens flares create shock waves?
You can clearly see an explosion followed by a shockwave.

Yeah strange....it's funny but it reminds me of the post i read yesterday on ATS about the Navy "Space Soldier" who lost two friends on Jupiter the other day

All I am going to say, is unless you have spent tons of nights fiddling with a camera and a telescope trying to get that perfect shot of a planet, cluster, nebula or whatever, you really dont understand the aspects of how space is photographed. Its not like just putting a camera to the view finder and clicking it.

No.
You can see lens flare. The same lens flare you see every time a bright object enters or leaves the field of view.

I guess Jupiter wasn't having any of that Elenin nonsense.

ACCESS DENIED!

Wonder what that is in reality. I need to hear from a person with ATS astronomy tenure,........Calling Dr. Phage, Dr. phage you have a request in another Elenin thread.

JESUS CHRIST YOUR FAST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So has elenin's path altered or not?

In the video above you can also see Mercury "change direction". Actually, it's an illusion called retrograde movement.

Why do these Youtubers make such long videos for something that occurs in seconds? Thanks for the synopsis Phage, I didn't have to waste my time.

Mr. Expert your video is not even close to the op's video, your video of a lens flare shows a lens flare that does not change in size. The op's video shows an expanding shock wave followed by some sort of burst or explosion, a lens flare does not expand like the one in the ops video. Very poor debunking.

Indicate the time in the OP video that shows that so I don't have to waste 10 more minutes of my life, please.
Thanks.

2:23 is about the time when you first see the red arch and it eventually expands to past the spectrum of view.

Space is, for the most part, a vacuum. As there is no atmosphere, an explosion in space can produce ejecting matter but cannot produce a shock wave.

We also would have to question what could cause an explosion large enough to be seen from the Earth and that produces an apparent shock, that traverses what appears to be hundreds of thousands of miles, in the time frame.

So either you believe that there was an explosion that produced a shock wave or you consider the possibility that what appears in the video was an internal reflection in the 'scope.

Occams razor suggests that the simplest explanation is the truth. In this case an internal reflection is the simplest explanation for the observed phenomena.
