there is some talk about google sky and their blacked out portion of the sky...
last known coordiantes of elenin were cut out by google sky...
but, now it is more visable as it has moved near the sun...

just go to google sky and type in 6 8 55, 22 47 21
zoom OUT using infrared and you will see it...

here is a screen shot that i took:

you can clearly see "moons" around it...
so what do you make of this guys?

Not much.

Google Sky is not "real time". Some of the images it uses are decades old.

Using Google Sky to track solar system objects is like trying to use Google Earth to watch a parade.

I haven't been on in a couple of days so excuse my ignorance. Is Elenin still alive or did it break up too pieces?

No.




Here is the source image (from IRAS in the 60 micron band)


What is seen is two infrared sources. Their PSC designations are 13458-0823 and 13459-0812. All lot of what is seen seems be be internal reflections produced by the optics of the telescope.

One is listed as a star forming region here:
13458-0823

The other is cataloged here:
13459-0812

I don't know why your screen shot has a blacked out portion but mine doesn't.

As stated above, the google sky images are not real time. You would be better off looking at the stereo A & B images that are updated several times a day.

WikiSky
GoogleSky
Microsoft Worldwide Telscope

All of them have a black area...but then if you zoom out there are A LOT of them.

The image I posted surely can't be that old. Look at the position of Elennin in relation to Saturn, Venus, The Sun and Mercury.
