Comet Elenin Disintegrating?

Comet C/2010 X1 Elenin appears to be breaking up?

Astronomers monitoring Comet Elenin have noticed the comet has decreased in brightness the past week, and the coma is now elongating and diffusing. Some astronomers predict the comet will disintegrate and not survive perihelion, its closest approach to the Sun.

On August 19, a massive solar flare and coronal mass ejection hit the comet, video below. Shortly after the coronal mass ejection the comet flared up and you could see some beautiful details in the tail, with the tail was twisting about in the solar wind. But shortly after that Earth- bound amateurs reported a huge decrease in the intensity of the comet. We think it may presage a falling apart of the comet, which may have been the beginning of the end for the much ballyhooed lump of ice and dirt. universetoday

And amateur astronomer and veteran comet observer Michael Mattiazzo of Castlemaine, Australia, has been photographing the comet at every opportunity for several weeks. His images show that its nucleus has elongated and the comet is becoming fainter, rather than brighter as expected. members.westnet.com

A picture of a disintegrating Elenin shows up on various websites and youtube videos, but it is not Comet Elenin, it is a closeup photo of the breakup of Comet S4 LINEAR taken on August 6, 2000 by the European Very Large Telescope (VLT) in Chile. Credit: ESO

However, Some comets will survive and some won’t. The fact that Comet Elenin decreased in brightness after the CME, possibly indicates that the comet will not survive. Another possibility is that merely the CME wiped away the coma – the bright cloud of particles around the comet – and the volatiles of the comet might take awhile to come back and recreate the coma, if it does survive.  astroblogger

Remarkable: the discover of Comet Elenin – Leonid Elenin –  has so far not (yet) reported that his Comet appears to be breaking up!! We would expect that he would be the first to report on his site

    • The crazies were Tesla, Marconi, Newton, Davinci, Ford, the Wrights, Galileo (heresy!), the inventors of TV (voices out of a box!), the Katrina naysayers, the anti-flat world heretics, and a few thousand others who are also ridiculed (by drones like you) for not taking conventional wisdom as wisdom. People like you are so easy to control or for nature or those in contrl to eliminate. Like sheep, you thrive on comfort and anything outside of your paradigm is the government’s fault.

        I am often at the mercy of questionable informations.
        I talked with a person whom Claims to be part of the hopi nation , online, and they made claims that thier elders believe the blue star Katchina has Already passed. Which supports a couple articles I had read more than a year ago about a blue star apearing in the sky Like an explosion. I remember photos but have Not been able to find the artical or photo’s since. it was My bad for not linking and recording the articals properly back then as I do now. live and learn.

        I would be VERY interested in hearing what You have to say about the Hopi elders notions on the subject. Mind you, I will be taking IT as hearsay, same as I now do my former Hopi informant, and taking it with a grain of salt.
        Thank you for catching me on that. I dislike Most people whom state things as if it were factual, as if it were proven and documented properly, and here I go using a tidbit of hearsay info as if it were the same. BAD VARA, Bad!
        lol. Please get back to me on your own elders notions of the matter.

I find it funny how far this ELENIN story has gone, its supposed to have passed us month after month yet no sign of it yet and now we think its disintegrating and its protected by a shield? i bet he guy who put this story up for starters is rolling around laughing at how many people have taken i as a true story, i can remember back 2-3months ago when a story was posted on here about a guy who was a mutant cyborg in MI6 and how he said a group of aliens were on their way to kill us, and yet he still had people flocking onto his article…. its seems to me that too many of us are looking for something that doesn’t exist, or are too far fetched to be valid stories. Im still waiting until we get a decent story back on here as im yet o see one in the last 2-3weeks.

    • NOT to try to debunk that news report, … but, there are a tremendous amount of inconsisyancies in it.
      For instance, Sumerians did not Call Nibiru the winged disk, that is how they first depicted it on stone. not a name.
      Next, the notion that Nibiru will come within a few HUNDRED yes, Hundred kilometers of earth, not possible.
      And if it did, All life would end here as our planet gets pulled apart to space rubble.
      Im not sure if this is the equivilant of a russian tabloid, but most of the information seems hear say, and not one spec of it looks like they looked into the sky for them selves and tracked and measured the planets size or trajectory.
      There is one part where they say it is visible in the sky may of 2011, and then later it says visible in april of 2012.
      I suspect that most of what they are speaking of is information from sites like ours on the internet, and worse, they have translated poorly.

      Yes, sure nibiru is coming.
      But I need to see more Evidence, not hear say, of WHEN, and how big, and how far from us, etc.
      Though I believe much of what was said here, I have to take a great deal of it with a grain of salt and assume that thier information may be no more accurate than yours or mine.

    Hi, I’m new here and have a gut feeling that things are amiss (the cycle is NOT yet understood perhaps?). I’m a typical English guy, left to grow up free from any kind of institutional religion, in my case I’ve turned out to be an athiest I guess. A Label that only religious folks can brand people with IMO. A family friend when I was growing up is a well known Sri Lanken comet guy so I’ve always had my head in the stars so to speak… Alas, my childhood is over and the family friend is just a distant memory…. I just want to ask a simple question if I may? Is it time to give up my role in society (paying bills and taxes ect..) and prepare for our extinction? I’m scared of the thought of my 3 year old daughter dying in a catastrophe. I’d rather prepare her with some sort of “noble lie” while I can. How many here on this site are censoring their beliefs from family members?

I personally would rather not let them know, let them be children without the problems we adults have to think about, too much responsibility is always placed on kids and they tend to worry alot more aswell. ATGML , i myself have spread the word amongst the family, but have been surprised at the reactions by many of them, its almost like we all have a sense that something is going down, we just dont know what.

      Yes, there Will be a series of cataclysms and soon.
      A great deal of life on earth will likely parish.
      Be it from Yellow stone cauldera super volcano blowing, astroid/commet impact, Or planet X/Nibiru passing very close and Upsetting our magnetic poles volcanos, and eco systems even further by far. Or all of the above.

      Every one can Feel that some thing is coming. Even if no one can decied precisely what or Exactly When.
      No matter what how ever, you can likely expect world wide power outage setting us back to the preverbial stone age for months if not a few years.
      You can expect massive quakes volcanic erruptions and phenominal weather anomalies. The sea’s rising and flooding all coastlines is a Very strong likelyhood.
      England will not fare well in this.
      Life will not End on this world, but it will become Very difficult to survive for a few months or years.
      With power loss there will be no feul, no transportation, localised cominication only at best. This will bring starvation despairation, looting raiding, violence etc, by those majority unprepared.
      6 months to a years worth of food, the ability to purify water, to live in winter environment, get away from coast lines and high populated area’s will be needed. But you dont need to leave yet, just prepair. When martial law looms, Thats when its time to GO.
      Hope this has helped.

    Comet Elenin by Radar
    Leonid Elenin reports of the first radio telescope observation of comet C/2010 X1 Elenin. Radar spectroscopy did not pick up any signature of water vapour from the comet, suggesting that it has well and truly broken up. We will have to wait for Comet Elenin to come into range of the Arecibo radio telescope and the SOHO spacecraft to learn more.

    In the meantime, Michael Mattiazzo’s latest Elenin images show it fading and becoming more tenuous than before.

    Sorry to bring it up again, but if the comet has broken up, how can it also do the damage everybody is fearing?
