13th May 2011 Notes: Position of Elenin

Conditions are not ideal for another picture of Elenin today….so we will show the current position of Elenin in the solar system.

In the picture below, you can see that Elenin is still well beyond the orbit of Mars which is indicated by the brown circle.

  1. Nice work … what were the coordinates for Elenin on this photo?

    Amy

  2. Where can one find the current Comet Elenin’s Coordinates?
    Thank you so much.

  3. Does ELEnin’s position have anything to do with these earthquakes and volcanoes.. or even the tetonic plates shifting???
    or am I just being a conspiracy nut??? its a big universe… what happens when a comet passes through space,,, does dark matter shift and push other planets and cosmic beings.

    • Some people will tell you that an alignment with Elenin causes earthquakes, floods and volcanic eruptions. However yesterday there was a 6.4 quake in the NORTHERN MOLUCCA SEA when there was no alignment with Elenin.

      Elenin is a small comet and it will have no effect on us at all. There will be a lot of people disappointed when nothing happens later this year and it turns out to be as exiting as the last pass of Halley’s comet which was a fizzer despite the publicity it got.

  4. What is elenins size in relation to earth??

    • From our research into the comet, Elenin currently has a nucleus of between 3 and 4 kilometres (1.8 to 2.48 miles) in diameter and it’s coma will be thousands of times larger than the nucleus.

      The coma is the atmosphere of the comet and not anything solid. The coma of a comet is about 10,000 times thinner than a cloud you will see in our sky and can reach several million km in size. But again…the coma is thinner than a cloud and nothing solid.

      The tail of Elenin is expected to be 900,000 km long or 559234 miles long.
      Earth is 12,742km in diameter compared to Elenin’s 4km.
