Hundreds? Ok, so what makes X1 Elenin so special to you?
Halley's comet gets close to the sun at a distance of 0.586 AU every 75 years, and my word it hasn't "melted completely" throughout the history since
it was discovered.
Has it ever passed through during a significant sunspot cycle?
Why did Comet Elenin have to be the exception? Its surface area is MASSIVE the fact it is 4 km in diameter, and it was only 0.482 AU from the Sun - a
large enough distance to escape the threat of "melting".
You tell me why people have made it an exception?
If you believe the youtubers and X1 elenin obssesives, then it has been responsible for earthquakes, it is a bizarre object. If it is so odd, then why
can't it just disinitegrate?
As I said, Elenin was just a symbolic message from 'Leo'.
