So this is Elenin

A few days ago I posted on why this could not be Elenin, it turns out that a year ago Mercury moved passed the same place. Hence I thought this was Mercury and so did a lot of other people.

Mr Cometwatch has some interesting videos and he explains why this is not Mercury. He has some good points as well.



Elenin or Mercury?

Some people believe this is Elenin. You got Pleiades on the left there in the upper right corner of the circle. The theory of the giant plate near the sun is that it is Elenin. This is also where Mercury is supposed to be. So which is it?

Update: Ok, someone said this is actually Venus. So the many theories of this being Elenin is probably wrong. Venus then or Mercury.


Mystery object moves on Stereo B HI1

In this video you will see an interesting viewpoint on the mysterious object very few people have noticed. As the author of the clip says, he does not claim to know what this is but as he also shows in his illustration it cant be comet Elenin. But what is it?

I also cant be the satellite that is about to strike the earth, remember this is on Stereo B, a far distance from the earth. So, what is this?


Where is Elenin now?


I find it strange that no amateur astronomers have said anything about Comet Elenin. It is supposed to be right next to the sun. Maybe we’ll be able to see it before it comes past the earth at almost 2AUs. Maybe we wont even see it. I hope we do see it. If all the theories are something to go by and all these huge coincidences are just coincidences then it will be a miracle.

UARS to enter on September 23

Ok, so now we finally have the “landing date” for UARS.

[pullquote sid=”pullquote-1316608748″ type=”3″]As of Sept. 21, 2011, the orbit of UARS was 120 mi by 130 mi (195 km by 210 km). Re-entry is expected Sept. 23, United States time. The time reference does not mean that the satellite is expected to re-enter over the United States. It is simply a time reference. Although it is still too early to predict the time and location of re-entry, predictions of the time period are becoming more refined.[/pullquote]

As long as its not in the US right?


Those clever people at NASA sure think about the US, who cares if the 6ton satellite fall in the middle of Cape Town CBD, as long as it does not fall in the US. How is it that people can predict exactly what planets billions of kilometers from here is made of and what the trajectory is for a asteroid or comet that is years away but NASA can predict where exactly this fridge will hit the earth?

If you dont know what i’m talking about, there is a 6 1/2 ton space junk heading to somewhere on earth this week or next week. Yes, if they dont mess up earth enough they will mess up space as well for us, those fat Americans.

The satellite that is going to fall is the 6.5ton Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite or UARS that was launched back in 1991 and is about to haunt someone. Read more
