Comet Elenin?

Comet Elenin is coming!

Source: SOTT

It is called Elenin since it was discovered by Leonid Elenin. I expect the internet to soon be ringing with rumors and news bytes about this comet.
1. It is too early to accurately predict the future path - it's orbital parameters haven't been revised.

2. Among the observable hyperbolic and parabolic comets (those that come from the Oort cloud) this one has the smallest perihelion distance and the smallest inclination to the ecliptic plane.

3. Comet Elenin's orbit may be unstable as it may encounter some dark bodies, for example, in the asteroid belt or even some Taurid objects. What would happen in those cases is a matter of luck.

4. This comet may carry a significant amount of material with it and if it follows the currently projected orbit, the Earth may very well pass through this material.

5. If Elenin is anything like what Victor Clube or James McCanney describes, we might be in for some surprises - good or bad, who knows?

When this was first discovered in December last year it was calculated that it would pass 8.8 Au (8.8 times the distance of the Sun form us) away. Now today the orbital calculation is down to 0.24 Au with a minimum as low as 0.15. This is being re-calculated all the time and could get even closer but it depends what it encounters in the Oort belt.

The Moon is 0.00256 Au form us to give you a comparison.

You should be aware the this comet could bring debris with it and we will pass through the debris trail – if it exists – around the 6th November 2011. Could this new long period comet (?) be the origin of the stories of Nibiru?

You can look at all the technical details here: Jet Propulsion Labs small-body database browser. This also has the _javascript animation from which that image was taken.

It is definitely something to be watching out for and I shall try and keep this thread updated with information as the closest approach draws nearer.


  1. Did you know there's a YouTuber who has been predicting this comet will cause a pole shift on March 15? What do you think? Is this comet big enough to cause a pole shift?


  2. More info here:


  3. pole shifts happen naturally not caused by comets. they are impossible to predict and are not anything to worry about.

  4. That's a very ignorant remark. Passing celestial bodies are the ONLY things capable of causing a pole shift, and it's happened many, many times throughout the history of the Earth. The most recent passage of Planet X around 1600 B.C. resulted in the great Exodus described in the Bible. Read "Planet X, Comets and Earth Changes" by James McCanney and "Worlds in Collision" by Immanueal Velikovsky.

  5. A pole shift is nothing to worry about?! I suggest some people research this. Not just knocking out about everything electronic, but much more concerning, how it affects our magnetosphere, weather and earthquakes to just name a few.
