Wow, didn’t think this Comet would be this huge. File this under Rumor for now, but according to Spaceorbs.org, Comet Elenin Exceeds 200,000 KM, which is 120,000 Miles. This is about 30,000 miles larger then Jupiter length across the planet. Yikes, that’s huge. This has all been calculated with the Photo that NASA released of Comet Elenin along with the Sun diameter. Hit the jump for photo and video.
It is reported that the Comet is not visible in the sky due to it’s special lighting and that Telescopes and other devices will have a hard time viewing it from earth. However, In October 28th it will make it’s closest approach making it see able. 2012 Dec. 21st is actually the false date for the huge world change, as this October-November is the real time the Mayan Calender ends, marking the coming of Comet Elenin. What effects it will have on the earth is unkown, NASA has stated in the past that it will affect earth and then denied that and said it wouldn’t. Since, then we haven’t heard much about Elenin from them except for these new photo released this week. Why keep it such a secret then? They have all the data on it so why not release it if it poses no threat?
Also this was taken in my home town of Minneasota. I assure this is not the moon as the moon here is very visible and only half the moon is dark at the moment. What is this object in the sky? Who knows.
