Just did this video to share my thoughts on the recent discovery of the Comet Elenin AKA C/2010 X1 which will be passing through our solar system in 2011 and passing at it's closest point to earth in September 2011. Some astronomers are astounded by the presses lack of attention to this story since comets are always exciting news, especially when they're going to be viewable by the naked eye. This one will DEFINITELY be viewable by the naked eye by August of 2011, maybe late July. By September there is a chance it could be dangerously close to Earth. Some astronomers are even concerned there is a chance of impact depending on Elenin's interactions with objects in the Ort Cloud such as large asteroids. Either way, this is going to provide one amazing spectacle at very least and at very most it could be the end life on earth as we know it.
