May 7, 2011 Comet Elenin spawned mass hysteria on the internet Leonid Elenin
A misreported April Fools joke sparked panic on the internet over a comet discovered by a Russian astronomer. Conspiracy theorists believe that the Elenin comet is an alien spaceship and demand that the scientist discloses data hushed up by NASA.
The web uproar focuses on the comet C/2010 X1, which was first discovered on December 10, 2010. Alien enthusiasts believe that it has a cluster of alien-made objects, most likely spacecraft, hiding in its tail. They fear that when the comet gets closer to Earth, the aliens will show themselves, and the first contact is likely to be a disaster. They expect doomsday on September 10.
The panic-sparking claims originate from Argentinean astronomer Sergio Toscano, whose report on the alien theory was cited by a number of Latin American media outlets. The scientist said the data came from the Chinese national space agency.
But the true origin of the story comes from a British newspaper, which published it as an April Fools joke. The astronomer may have been misguided by the fact that the Latin American counterpart for April Fools Day, Feast of the Holy Innocents, is celebrated on December 28.
Nevertheless, the internet rumor mill was quick to spread the story, which mutated into an alien invasion scare. Some even matched the comet with the infamous Nibiru planet.
And the person arguably affected most by the scare is the Russian scientist who discovered the comet in the first place. Leonid Elenin from the Keldysh Institute of Applied Mathematics in Moscow became the first target for the enquiries, demands and threats of all the worried souls.
It was somewhat funny at first, and I even surfed the internet to see what they say, but now Im scared to do it. Im really irritated. Im really disappointed that this nonsense appeared in the Russian segment of the web, the astronomer told RIA Novosti news agency.
According to Elenin, conspiracy theorists go as far as claiming that he is a front firm for NASA or other government agencies, who try to put a lid on the information about the alleged upcoming disaster.
Ive seen discussions about what Leonid Elenin actually means. Ele is extinction level event and nin is Nibiru in November, the scientist said.
The astronomer did his best to explain that there is nothing special about the comet he detected, apart from the fact that it was the first comet discovered by a Russian astronomer in two decades.
He believes the hysteria has been fueled by the photo of the comet made by a tracking camera, which resulted in two nearby stars leaving stretched markings.
Theres the comet flying and there are tracks from the two stars. I read an article claiming those two cylinders are the spacecraft, Elenin explained.
The Elenin comet is to flyby Earth at an estimated distance of 35,000,000 kilometers in mid-October. You would need good binoculars or a telescope to see it harmlessly pass and go away.
May 2, 2011 Comet Elenin may be brighter than expected Leonid Elenin
Comet C/2010 X1 (Elenin) is becoming one of the most observed long-period comets. At the moment, the overall number of CCD camera observations is approaching 1300, while the number of CCD observations of comet C/1996 B2 (Hyakutake) never exceeded 1000. Of course, for the most part that reflects the growth and accessibility of modern CCD cameras. I have underscored this fact for the conspiracy theorists who are saying that Comet Elenin is impossible to see in the sky and all its observations are being kept secret. Of course that is not the case, but lets return to news about the comet.
On the basis of quality estimates of the comets brightness, the photometric model of comet C/2010 X1 (Elenin) has been revised by Artem Novichonok. According to the new prediction, the comet may reach a brightness of mag. 4 near perihelion, and that is without accounting for the effect of forward scattering, when the comet is directly between the Earth and the Sun. Tiny icy dust particles will scatter light passing through them, and the comets brightness, which we can observe on images taken by SOHOs space coronagraph, will increase. The comet could reach mag. 0 or even brighter! True, such a sharp increase in brightness will be very brief, and when the comet comes out of conjunction with the Sun and we can see it in the morning sky, its brightness will have already returned to mag. 4-4.5. The comet will remain visible to the unaided eye until the beginning of November.
A challenge from ParaNikki comes from paranormalutopia.com
Every now and again I am a little embarrassed to be part of the ufology and ancient astronaut theory crowd. Honestly, there are some real kooks out there that will come up with the wildest stories and lately, one of them, is that Comet Elenin (a.k.a. C2010 X1), a comet set to pass Earth in October, is somehow going to bring about earthquakes, tidal shifts, maybe even the end of the world depending on which wacko you believe.Whenever I read these things, I always wonder for just a moment but then I immediately find myself trying to get to the source of it all. Frankly, in spite of all the conspiracy theories I believe in, I think the scientists involved in the field would have their reasons for not telling us, i.e. they dont want to cause a panic with something that can be and probably will be diverted, or there really is no cause for alarm which is the case WAY more often than not.
Yes, big things have come barreling through our atmosphere before and you never know when a meteor is going to come falling out of the sky but facts are facts and there are a number of experts trying to put these rumors to bed. For instance, Discovery Science says that trajectory places it at about 21 million miles from Earth (more than 80 times farther away than the moon) at its closest pass and considering the minuscule size of the object it will have the equivalent effect on earth as a mosquito would if it hit head on with a ocean cruiser. In case you didnt catch that, it wont have ANY effect on Earth. Its not going to slam into us, its not Nibiru, its not inhabited, its not the fulfillment of a Mayan prophecy, none of that. Even the closest fly-bys of other comets havent created natural disasters historically and this one will be much farther away than many have been.
If you seem to think otherwise, Id be glad to hear why, but I cant promise Ill take you seriously.
Yep, that's it. Now where did I put my purple Nikes.
“Alien enthusiasts believe that it has a cluster of alien-made objects, most likely spacecraft, hiding in its tail. They fear that when the comet gets closer to Earth, the aliens will show themselves, and the first contact is likely to be a disaster. They expect doomsday on September 10.”
No doubt they are the advance force of those aliens who are ticked off at us over global warming.
I JUST KNEW IT! Those scumbags.
Are these the same aliens coming to bash us for emitting greenhouse gases? Or are they a different group? It is hard to keep up with which group of aliens will invade us first, there are so many out there.
I think they are ticked off at us for being so STUPID as to believe such nonsense.
Paul Krugman will be overjoyed. The alien invasion will save our economy!!!
Of course it does. Many things do. It's widely known.
Justin Bieber has your purple Nikes.
Clearly you are a reptilian sent ahead of the invasion force to keep us from preparing for the war.
Your username “mnehring” tells us all we need to know. I haven’t figured out the beginning but the end is obviously Reptilian Invasion National Guard
It is not all baseless.
OMG, it’s red and has wings, it must be Nibiru!!!
The conspiracy nuts make me laugh with this stuff.
I also like the video they made where they use the Kreutz sungrazers as supposed proof of ‘we are all gonna die’.
Yes, but many of those other kind have.
And lived to tell about it.
If that can be called life.
Well, to use some logic I saw on another thread, obviously, MN stands for Minnesota.
Michele Bachmann is from Minnesota.
That sentence has 30 letters.
3, 30s is 9
MNehring has 8 letters. 8 + 3 is 11
Therefore, Elenin will hit on 9/11.
EHR is obviously hinting at EaRtH (the aliens re dyslexic)
..and of course, you figured out the RING.
Therefore, Comet Elenin will hit Earth on 9/11 and I am a member of the Reptilian Invasion National Guard here to prevent you from preparing by buying up all the purple Nike high-tops.
I like how they claim earthquakes and such are due to Elenin, yet they completely ignore that Elenin didn’t disturb or disrupt asteroid 74732(1999 RQ176) despite passing .002 AU away from it, alot closer than the it will pass by us.
IF Elenin could do all this super bad stuff as they claim, the asteroid would have been shifted from orbit.
Especially since they claim orbital and polar shifts (somehow not detected by any scientists, satellites etc..) here on Earth.
“Therefore, Comet Elenin will hit Earth on 9/11 and I am a member of the Reptilian Invasion National Guard here to prevent you from preparing by buying up all the purple Nike high-tops.”
Too late. I am prepared. I just finished covering my trailer in tin foil. And I have purple Nikes for me and all my dogs. I have until September to alert all the planet.
I just saw a documentary on the HEAVEN’S GATE cult, I had forgotten they thought of the spaceship behind the comet and it immediately reminded me of Elenin and the hysteria around that! LOL!
The dwarf star is coming. Believe it or not.
