14th April 2011 Notes: Comet Elenin Next Search

We have checked the coordinates of Comet Elenin for April 12th and are pretty happy that what we have in the picture for that day is indeed Comet Elenin.

We are already planning the next session of tracking Elenin and hopefully capturing it in a picture again. To do this we need to reserve time on a specific telescope on two successive days and hope for good weather. With a little luck we should be able to get at least one or two pics of Elenin each week as we watch it approach the Sun.

Thanks for your comments Amy. Yes hopefully there will be more pictures of Elenin. We are now just waiting for good weather to take the next set of pictures.

  1. I hope you will be able to get a few nice photos of Elenin. The only photos of it so far, are from Russia & Spain … it is not being talked about on our news here in the US … You have some really nice photos of Elenin on this site 🙂

  2. Great.

    Have the members seen the photos of Elenin coming from Russia & Spain? If not, I can send them to the group?

  3. Amy, I would be delighted to see pictures of Elenin from where ever they are taken.

    It would also be nice to have dates and times as well as RA and DEC.

    Thank, Charley
