According to Google Sky, the object that can be seen next to Mercury has moved dramatically. Please correct me if i'm wrong, but isn't the footage from Google Sky ment to be a couple of years old, besides some places being updated? I ask this because the object that can be seen in Infrared vision that was near Mercury has now moved dramatically.

Take a look at these images:




Now compare it to:




And this:




Why are they updating this particular object every month or so? (It was only a month or two ago when the object was just to the left of Mercury, now it is right of it).

That's not Elenin, it's a star.

What you'll find is it's Mercury that moves.

I'm not saying that it is Elenin, i was just pointing out how the object moved. But now, after thinking more thoroughly, i can't believe i didn't think of the fact that Mercury has an orbit

I was just saying as the third picture had it circled with the Elenin tag is all.
But yeah, the orbit may go someway to explaining it.

I'm a little confused.

You said you did not claim the object is Elenin, yet in the third picture it is labeled as "this is Elenin."

Was it you who originally noticed the object moving, or did you get this from somewhere else?
Or... something else?

(I'm not trying to call you out or say anyone is lying, i'm just genuinely confused.)

It is definitely Mercury that is moving.

Have a look at the background stars.

well, either way, it is not Elenin.

Mercury does move you know.... Orbit and all that.

As others have mentioned, going by the other background stars, it seems obvious that Mercury is the thing doing the moving, and your mystery object is not.

BY the way, that object is called "CW Leonis" or IRC +10216. CW Leonis is not visible to the naked eye in the night sky, but it is very visible to infrared telescopes. In fact CW Leonis is the second brightest object in the sky outside of our solar system when viewed in infrared.

CW Leonis is well-known and well-studied because it is so bright in the infrared. It is a carbon star that is surrounded by thick dust. It is big and hot, but not so bright (in the visible light spectrum).
