Since you decided to close my other thread, I figured we should at least leave one open for news & updates as the Comet gets closer to Earth.

I'm making no claims this time... But I am going to try and get IR footage of LEO and see if I see an object.

And hopefully other people will decide to do the same.

While we wait... Here's an extremely cool Video of the VLT in action... :)

Here's a Visible+IR image of Elenin. It was taken with a modified security camera using a series of stacked 8 second exposures, so pardon the noise level in the image. Elenin's position in the image was confirmed through astrometry, all other stars in the image were accounted for in DSS.

Why? There are already several threads on comet Elenin, all started by Centaur, always good to read.

Comet Elenin Peak Magnitude Estimate 5.8 to 6.4 (http://www.bautforum.com/showthread.php/114473-Comet-Elenin-Peak-Magnitude-Estimate-5.8-to-6.4)
Comet Elenin Update prior to March 14 Opposition (http://www.bautforum.com/showthread.php/112674-Comet-Elenin-Update-prior-to-March-14-Opposition)
Comet Elenin is Coming (http://www.bautforum.com/showthread.php/111092-Comet-Elenin-is-Coming)

Funny how beskeptical predicted these CT threads.

That's not how it works here. For example, you couldn't simply say "I'm not making a claim" and continue to post things that look, smell and taste like claims.

If you simply want to post pictures of some comet, that doesn't need to be done in the conspiracy section of the site.
