Jenny, this is rumors from trash sites.
In photograph, on September 26, 2o11, what does the star symbol and the term ” Min Elong” mean? Excuse my arrogance, I don’t know anything about it.
This mean minimal elongation, i.e. minimal angular distance from comet to the Sun.
Where can I look to see it with the naked eye? Or is that going to be a possibility? I live in south central Kansas, will it be visible to the naked eye at all? Thank you.
Congratulations on yours great discovery, you must be proud on yourself can you tell me what telescope will you use to observe comet in September/October?
Thank Brane, you just need small telescope or binoculars.
Hi, Leonid. is there any chance for mistake about point of perihelion – cause I’ve heard lots of information, that it can changs size speed and direction. Excuse me for disturbing you – I’m complete zero in astgronomy, but I prefer to get info from first hands. Thank you.
No the perihelion point will not change and has been well known since February.
Elenin Dear Sir,
I’m having trouble finding where the error of this video and document on the comet!
Please … can you help me find the error for me to end my story?Thank you!
Congratulations for your work!
This video just another bullshit. You can find information on my blog about observation of gamma-ray bursts. This link just circular about one of these observation. Nothing else,
Can you tell us the current coordinates in which we can use our own telescopes to observe the comet? That would be greatly appreciated!
Why is canot viewied from stereo b right now. It is about right from the sun???
Comet Elenin in STEREO H1B (August14)
I think no, comet have short dust tail and will be too far from us.
We will not pass through the coma of the comet.
Hi Susan, perhaps I will post information about this soon. This comet consist more “gas” than “dust” and now we have short tail, but with well developed gas coma.
when you say we may pass through the tail does this pose any threat at all to earth?
The comet will be too far from us to pose any threat.
A question!The Arecibo radio telescope will measure the comet elenin whether, ?if the observation is made.?
Hello friend Leonid … why now the object is closer, it’s at least give information about it?Stereo are supposed to make it up but we provide more images … Why?a hug
Hi. Can you tell me what the chances are that the comet will ignite into a fireball when it is closest to the sun?
No, it can just disintegrate. But I think what chances of this scenario is small.
On 1910 May 19, Halley’s Comet passed directly between the Sun and Earth (Ian Ridpath)
Comet Halley: Harbinger of Death?
“End of the World!”: The Day the Earth Passed Through Halleys’ Comet 24-Million-Mile Tail
This Week in Science History: Halley’s Comet
Did you know that if you condensed the entire 100 thousand mile long tail of a comet such as Hale-Bopp to the density of water, it would not even fill a swimming pool?
In the hypothesis of this comet be really a cluster how Nasa said weeks ago, there is the possibility of the Earth still be hit by a meteor shower in its closest approach?
Elenin is NOT a cluster. That claim is unscientific fear mongering put out by unreliable sources. Yes, some photos do show main-belt asteroids moving in the background, but that has nothing to do with the comet.
We are unlikely to see a meteor shower from this average comet.
Any chance of a meteor shower or storm from debris shed by Elenin at perihelion (Tony Dunn 28-April-2011)
to kevin heider: please could you comment on 2005 yu55. NASA jpl has this at just 200,000 miles from earth on 9 Nov 2011 and 150,000 from our moon. maybe the whole elenin scenario is being escalated to hide the fact that 2005 yu55 is posing a much larger threat to us. coincidence that the American emergency broadcast is also planned for that very day. Looking on NASA jpl orbital diagram at this is quite frightening.your professional view in a little detail would really be most appreciated.
On 19 April 2010, highly accurate radar targeting by the Arecibo radio telescope reduced uncertainties about the orbit of 2005 YU55 by 50 percent. This improvement eliminated any possibility of an impact with the Earth for the next 100 years.
Only one question.
What object this?Venus?
09 47 57.3 13 16 44
Only see infrared.
That is CW LEO (again).
Elenin is not Nibiru or CW Leonis (August 26, 2009)
Hi..about the comets…we ?ll can see from Sudamerica? On day or nigth?
