  7. ya all the bullsh*t stories , the comet will do this or that , looks like its just gonna fly by just as everything else does in space . Hell I wouldn’t want to stop at earth , people here are rude and self centered..

    • Everyone has their opinion Wheeler, but calling others explination on Elenin “bullsh*t” is rude and self centered itself. Ive been watching Elenin, and its info has changes many times over. Wether its coming in close or just passing by…its a comet to be watched.

  8. I studied the JPL diagram of today and it seems NASA has changed the distances considerably since yesterdays diagram and also from 2 weeks ago!
    The comet is now closer to the sun than Earth is to the sun and if you advance the dates the distance is much closer.
    This is the twice now in 2 weeks these distances have shortened and also its a day earlier for us to see it than when they first told us.
    Are NASA gradually changing these distances hoping we will not notice?
    I am sure its still far enough away as we see it now but if the JPL distances keep changing then how far is it really going to be nearer the time?
    Is it possible that Elenin can snake in or maybe it is or has been snaking in that NASA had to change these distances?

    • I took screen prints and did a video over a month ago based on the JPL website. In checking it this morning, the distances noted are the same as they were for each of the days. I’m not seeing that anything significant has changed on the JPL site.

  9. if you can see elenin, how come nibiru is not shown?

    • aLOHA Mr.C
      The common consensus on Nibiru is that it may be a Brown Dwarf or “failed star”. This is a unusually large gass giant that ignited only temporarily but could not maintain a burn like a true sun. the lighter burnt materials like soot gather in the uppermost atmosphere giving it a dark rusty or near black apearance which does Not reflect light well but instead absorbs it, making it at a distance seem like black on a black sky back ground. Only Infra red can detect such objects until they are close. and the government controls all large infra red tellescopse and satalites. it has even placed a ban on purchasing infra tellescopes and camera to the public. funny that, huh?

      Nibiru will not be visible to the naked eye until it is almost on top of us unfortunately.

  10. August 31 2011 is the date I heard the comet will come around the sun and be visible to the nake eye. So we should see a ‘little’ prick with a tail in the sky. PLEASE. Nobody commit suicide. (Heaven’s Gate.)

  11. NASA doesn’t know anything about where this comet could go. Let’s just assume it is a comet. Well, when it passes the Sun, there is a big chance that this object could break up into pieces. How in the hell would they know whether any of these pieces could hit Earth? They don’t know, there is no way they could know.

  14. This news just in from Leonid Elenins website …..
    The comet has grown. Now the diameter of it’s outer coma exceeded 200,000 km! Of course, at this time we have only low resolution images, but they still allow us to estimateits current size. I want to remind you that the outer coma, it’s very discharged gas envelope, not the nucleus itself, estimates of the nucleus size has not changed. On the left picture you can see the comet itself, as well as the angular size of the Sun, if it was located at the same distance as comet. Impressive?

    Now thats big!!! And now we know what that bright glare is to the left of the
    Stereo behind images hmmm

    • Thanks for this video. I completely agree with this guy. When I originally checked the JPL, it gave me 0.232AU from the Earth on Oct 17th. When I checked today, it said 0.234AU. It does seem to be fluctuating, which concerns me.

      Hopefully after it reaches perihelion, it will be easier to predict it’s path. Guess we’ll see.

  18. This video is saying something similar. Nothing “significant” has changed. On March 25, JPL indicated that the distance from earth to elenin on 9/11 would be .708 and now it’s .704. They had indicated earlier this year that they would be adjusting as they knew more. I’m not saying that there’s nothing unusual with this comet,but there’s a LOT of people freaking out over this thing. Just trying to keep the fear and facts in check.

    • Kathie, not everyone is as uninformed as you hope. The cat is out of the bag now and one cannot put it back in. There are many corroberating sources and many very talented amateur astronomers who have taken pictures of the object and it is HUGE!
      Stop the disinformation!
      Any one who does their homework and is intellectually honest can easily verify that there is a HUGE object with smaller objects orbiting around it.

      • Hayomtovy – I’m sorry that I gave the impression that I’m hoping people are uninformed. It’s quite the opposite, in fact I’ve done several videos, classes and radio shows trying to keep people informed. And you said it best, I’m just seeking facts and typically ask for the sources of the quotes and specifics so I can then share them. We’re on the same side of the fence here.

  19. Not only has the govt disallowed the purchase of infrared lenses but they have blocked the military satellite availability to scientists for NEO surveillance. This is a recent decision and an odd one. Why would the military not want astronomers to see near earth objects ?? Did you know that a lot of the caves located on federal parks have been closed to the public? Think about it…..

  20. @Kathie…. Thank you for your positive responses without attacking us and I have no fears but as for others I think we always fear the lies that our goverments spread and with all the doom and gloom with the economy I quite enjoy my researching here and learning as I research, so what is your position here?

    • And thank you! First and foremost, I want the truth. I also believe that we are constantly lied to by the ‘powers that be’ and it’s been my mission to get the truth out. This led me on a ‘quest’ if-you-will to find the truth behind the 2012 Mayan Calendar ‘doomsday’ mumbo jumbo. After visiting many ancient sites around the world (including Maya), I found it difficult to believe what we were being told. After researching I did get to the truth of the matter which has little to do with what the ‘white man’ shares and claim is “Mayan”.
      They DO anticipate a ‘shift of the ages’ from this 4th age into the 5th, as do many other ancient cultures. They believe that this shift will be marked with 3 days of darkness (it’s said the last shift was 3.5 days in the “void”). Almost within the same breath, they also say we should have no fear surrounding this darkness that it’s a time to finally understand that we are all one (In Lak’ech) and a time to focus on our ‘inner light’. It’s very possible (if not plausible) to believe that Elenin (or Honda or YU55) could be the cause for the coming 3 days of darkness (note: no one knows when this is coming, not even the Maya). But again, they teach to approach without fear.
      I’ve been posting videos since March regarding Elenin and I spend a ridiculous amount of time researching ‘facts’ that are being shared and I’m often finding that the source is no more knowledgeable about comets than I am (and that’s not saying much). I’ve seen many people share “facts” and “proof”, only to find out that the source is someone who’s intentions are less than honorable.
      Knowledge is Power. We all have the power to share true knowledge. I know it’s really easy to read something and jump on it and believe it (I often have to catch myself after saying “SEE SEE!!! Here’s PROOF” – then researching it and with slumped shoulders move on…).
      I guess this was a REALLY long way of saying my intent is for the truth, no matter how ugly or uncomfortable. Because I can “handle the truth” and I think many others can too.

  21. one has to be concerned about the MOID of Elenin. The latest report is Earth MOID = .0306272 AU
    In terms of .030 this is supposingly the closest to earth encounter being only 2 million miles from us and it keeps changing closer and closer every time we look at it. The danger is when you see it be .004 or less and that my friends indicates impact scenario.

  27. Is there anyone that is an astronomer with a frickin telescope using infared, and knows the math calculations to give us the real scoop and dope on Elenin, its nucleus diameter, its corona diameter, its actual path and trajectory, and how close it will get to Earth, or if its heading smack dab at us???

    We only need one person who is not government connected and is willing to share and let the real people who are concerned about this matter and gawd sakes tell us the frickin truth once and for all. No bullshit, just the facts and the truth of your calculations and what you have found and know about overall. If this is going to impact the earth, please tell us, and if possilbe where the impact is expected based on earths rotation and time.

    Also folks be concerned of asteroid YU 55 as its now MOID at 96,000 miles from us meaning it is definitely inside between us and Moon orbit and this MOID is getting smaller – not bigger!!!!!!!

    The last known MOID from JPL is .030 and that puts it just over 2 million miles out. Not the 54 million which everybody seems to like being .232 previously told when it was on the other side of the sun. So obviously the Suns pull altered its course tremendously. You have to watch the MOID and the Nucleus factor. On the Nucleus factor if it exceeds 22 and if the MOID is less than .0004 impact is extremely very high and certain.

    Last of all, what piques my interest especially when people say that NIBIRU is on the same level plane with Earths Orbit. It cannot be on the same level plane as of Earth or other planets orbits because it was following Elenin 8 AU back, and Elenin is coming from under the plane and will cross over our orbit and go above the plane. Do any of you understand what I am saying here. Question these alleged reports and study it and THINK.

    I have seen some outrageous corona sizes like 1 million miles etc from other sites. Now think again at 122,000 miles = to 200,000km The nucleus has to be massive and much bigger than 5km to create a 122,000 mile corona which is 10 times the size of earth.

    If they are referring to the tail, then its acceptable. However this beast is not a COMET. It is an ASTEROID, so get this inside your heads people.

    Infared has already detected a strong magnetic field emitting from Elenin. There are 5 other objects around it. Take your pick.

    Furthermore the White House document to the house referring NASA was given in late October/early November of 2010. The source is as follows: http://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/default/files/microsites/ostp/ostp-letter-neos-house.pdf

    Is this the smoking gun or is this the customary report to the House etc. Check it out and read it.

I read a article that say NEO are classified . So ., if there are real dangerous , it’s classified and all info that come out are incorrectly . And I have one question …. if ELEnin are coming from bellow Earth’s and other planets orbit plane , how could it be associate with earthquakes when was over 4 AU from Earth ? how can call alignment with Sun and Earth if was bellow both ? And just curious , about Saturn be tilted … anyone can take a pic of Saturn now to compare the pics ? ….. and if Earth has tilted 2 times Chile and Japan Earthquakes that changed the skies view , can not be the reason we see the rings at different positions cause Earth’s point of view after tilted by the quakes ? …. I don’t know , that’s is why I’m asking …. please , someone , what do you think ?
