Here is a comet visible with a coronagraph... BUT it appears to be on the opposite side of Sol. No different then when we see Venus over there. Do we see Venus when it's on our side of Sol though? Only when it transits Sol, right?
I think I'm right about this one guys. It's only "disappeared" because it's now moving BETWEEN, BUT NOT **DIRECTLY** in between Sol and Earth, (YET). That happens on the 21st?
Then it hits us on the 23rd-25th?edit on 19/9/11 by Darce because: (no reason given)
And here's somebody who says we won't be able to see it again until mid-October.

You can actually see the crescent Moon two days before new, but it is very close to the Sun, and much care is needed (and often binoculars). In the past, I've had to use daylight Venus to help me find the thin crescent!
How do you know that the government hasn't taken control of MPC and IAU months ago ? You dont ! I don't ! We can only assume . They have ways to make everything go silent . This comet supposedly isn't made up of frozen ice , it's made of IRON FERRITE AND it's so hot that it's giving off red iron ferrite dust !

Oh and btw, ELENIN WAS NOT ALIGNED PERFECTLY ON 3/11/11, IT WAS ALIGNED PERFECTLY ACCORDING TO NASA ON 3/15/11.
THE JAPAN QUAKE STRUCK 2 DAYS EARLIER BEFORE ALIGNMENT

Just one question - how come it didn't break up last time it came around and survived to return again and again every 3,600 years????
then we should be clearly seeing Elenin now as it's on the opposite side of the sun, reflecting back at us
