I'd hope the elite has better things to do than that.

No. It is comet C/2012 V4.

BIG ASTEROID FLYBY: Large near-Earth asteroid 4179 Toutatis is flying past Earth this week. At closest approach on Dec. 12th, it will be 7 million km away, or 18 times farther than the Moon. Astronomers are taking advantage of the flyby to learn more about the asteroid's orbit, shape, and topography.
Measuring 5 km in length, Toutatis is one of the largest known potentially hazardous asteroids (PHAs) and its orbit is inclined less than half-a-degree from Earth's. No other kilometer-sized PHA moves around the Sun in an orbit so nearly coplanar with our own. This makes it an important target for asteroid studies.

Fortunately, there is no danger of a collision with Toutatis for hundreds of years. Radar observations should improve researchers' ability to predict the asteroid's trajectory even farther into the future. Goldstone will pinging Toutatis from now until Dec. 22nd. Stay tuned for daily updates.
Full story,

Click the forward button until it reaches Feb 16 (enable java to run at the top of your browser if necessary).

It looks to intersect Earth there, what distance is .0034 AU?

I noticed that, the nominal distance of the closest pass is 34,000km, i wish i understood more of the tracking data then that.

I have no idea what all those numbers mean, but this CLEARLY STATES that it's going to bounce of the earth!!!

But probably not.

WOW... I call this kind of talking a mass panic !!!

you guys really believe this ??? good luck

I tell you ones for sure, we will all die, the one way or the other... and this is the only thing you can count on !

so let me count down now how the human race will be extincted, from what I remember of all that crap that has been talked about the last few months...

mega earthquake, continent shifting, alien invasion ( no, right, they are here to save us
), asteroids, galactic alignment, planet X - niburu, super virus, WWIII, zionists, don't forget the sun-flare and more important.... God's punishment ( who's God by the way ??? )

suppose to happen on 21 December 2012, now 15th-16th February 2013... ??? WHAT ???

can't you guys come to a conclusion? I think you can count and dying twice is not possible, isn't it ???
I do respect your opinions and believes, but there must be only ONE TRUTH... so what is it #ing hell ?
I'm really curios!!!

come to a point and agree that YOU ALL ARE WRONG

f... that

Either way its not a planet or alien space craft OR the apocalypse for that matter
People need to stop with the pessimism already

Please don't post any more pics of sundogs - we've already seen one recent thread claiming that sundogs are actually celestial objects when they are not, and that ended up in the bin (hoax forum). There's no point wasting your time posting more rubbish.

Plenty to be read here about C/2012 V4 Comet Pons Gambart seen after 188 years.

Visual observers have estimated the comet to be as bright as magnitude 9.0 to 9.5. Unfortunately the comet is located in eastern Sagittarius low in the southwest right during evening twilight. For the next few nights it will be located within a few degrees of Mars which will help with finding the comet. (As you can see from the plot to the right, the comet appears along the line-of-sight between the Earth and Mars but is not actually close to Mars). This will make for difficult observing due to its very low elevation. To make matters worse the comet is only going to get even lower in the future. It is possible the comet may brighten some as it approaches perihelion on Dec. 19 and 0.81 AU from the Sun. By then the comet will be almost 1.7 AU from Earth.

That's if I have read it right having no Astrological experience at all.

I just want to point out in case anyone has got the wrong impression, that when they say "as bright as magnitude 9.0 to 9.5", it's not actually very bright at all - you would not be able to see an object of this brightness with the naked eye, even from the best observing sites on Earth. However, if you have a reasonably good telescope or binoculars, you should be able to see it if the prediction is right.

If you read the link he supplied, you would have known it has been confirmed by several astronomers now, including Terry Lovejoy and Rob McNaught.

There was some recent information regarding a newly discovered comet cluster that will be hitting Earth for a short time at the end of this month.

I still have a prediction about a North Atlantic impact that I really hope doesn't happen.
