There was a theory that Elenin was the furthest satellite away from "nibiru"

It is supposedly right on the edge of the magnetic influence of "the brown dwarf"

So, as it approached the sun, it was caught in betwixt 2 tidal gravity forces, and was succinctly torn asunder.

Just thought that if all the nibiru stuff was true that this could have been a possibility

And now........

Nice theory.
Does anyone know the current status of Elenin?

Good questions , i'm not sure!! i'm still confuse as to whether elenin has broken up or not. Has it really?

Still two sides to that

No one knows for sure

I read somewhere that elenin has slowed down, does that mean it will not align on the 26th of this month?

I hate to burst your bubble bro, but "Nibiru" was the Babylonian name for Jupiter. That thing out passed pluto is not Nibiru. It's called Eris, as dubbed by NASA and formerly known as planet x.

What was the planet the ancients called 'The Destroyer'?

What is the Egyptians depiction of the red disc with wings?

The sumerian depiction of the same?

The Hopi Indians Red Kachina, dubbed 'The purifier'?

There's a little more to it I think.

There is no way that a regular comet that breaks up on it's own could slow down in the vacuum of space

So, if it did slow down, that would be pretty freaky

Elenin broke up due to gravitational effects of the sun. Your theory is void due to the fact the nibiru does not exist.

ALS, above, is half right. If Elenin is, in fact, disintegrating (which has yet to be determined), it is because of it being hit by a CME. STEREO watched this happen, so there's really no room for guesses... the disintegration of Elenin is theorized because of an increase in brightness seen at the time Elenin encountered the CME.

What if the ancients saw the outer planets and thought they were either Gods or somthing that was coming.
The giant red destroyer= Jupiter, The winged planet=saturn (poor telescope means the rings may look like wings). Kachina, whatever its name is the two blue Gods/stars= Neptune and Uranus.

Mis-inturpitation is a B**CH

The disc with wings has always been associated with the Sun. That's why it's usually the symbol for a sun god. As for the Kachina, there is no actual prophecy involving them. No Hopi has ever spoken of it and the Hopi has said to beware of any non-Hopi speaking of Hopi matters because they do not know what they're talking about. Even Hopi not living on Hopi land are not trusted with the prophecies of the Hopi.

Pretty big hunch on there behalf then if all they got is the change in brightness?

The whole elenin subject is a farce, blaitant disinformation constantly flowing from countless sources most of which aint reliable, even NASA.

Time will tell, not long now.

The following comets broke up:
Comet Brooks 2
Shoemaker-Levy 9
Biele’s Comet
Comet XIV
Comet West
Comet 213P Van Ness
Comet 73P/Schwassmann-Wachmann 3
Comet Ikeya-Seki

Also, note that Comet West, Comet Ikeya-Seki and Biele's Comet all broke up close to perihelion on their orbit, just like Comet Elenin.

There is absolutely nothing unusual about Comet Elenin.

The other thing is that Comet Elenin did NOT slow down when it broke up. It was in fact, at the time, accelerating towards the point of perihelion on its orbit and after perihelion, began to slow down obeying the laws of orbital mechanics.

I don't know where you got the idea that it slowed down. Definitely it was not from an astronomer and is not indicated by a revision to its orbital data, which has remained unchanged since February this year.

Please read up on the Roche Limit for details of how adjacent gravitational fields may affect break-up of Comets. (Note: Roche proposed this equation for estimating when a comet is highly likely to break up, way back in 1850. It is not new science at all.)

It's not just that. Since that time Elenin has dimmed significantly to the point where it is practically invisible and the last we clearly saw it had its nucleus elongating. On top of that radio telescopes have been unable to detect any water vapor coming from Elenin, which is a sure sign that it is breaking up.

It should also be pointed out that both Comet Ikeya-Seki and Comet West were long period comets and that Elenin's orbital period and aphelion fell right in between both of theirs.

Exactly! Comet Elenin is so blindingly mundane I can't understand why there's so much fuss and BS.

Yar, i hear you. Next thing you know we will be seeing chimera and gryphons, and monkies will fly out of my butt.

Must've been a load of Hopi then.
