Comet Elenin September 29, 2011, Alignment

comet-elenin-planetary-alignment-2011-september

Comet Elenin, also known as C/2010 X1, will be sweeping through our inner solar system this Fall. In fact, it’s already here, making its turn around the Sun, already within the orbit of Earth and just about to enter within the orbit of Venus as of this post date.

While rumors abound on the Internet regarding Comet Elenin, we thought we add another one, for fun, given a side interest in ‘astronomical space happenings’…

While manipulating the Jet-Propulsion-Laboratory database browser, I discovered that during September 29, 2011, there will be an interesting alignment of planets, a comet, and the sun.
(Update: more accurately, there will be a period of several days while in approximate alignment – Elenin between the Earth and the Sun, September 26, 27, 28…)

The alignment between Earth, Comet Elenin, the Sun, and Mercury will span a distance of 210 million miles, while Venus will also be ‘nearly’ in alignment. Elenin will be 33 million miles from us during this date, however Earth will pass close or through Elenin’s debris field later, during the first week of November, which may prove interesting.

What is significant about the alignment? Probably nothing apart from curiosity.
Or, just maybe… a significant earthquake or volcanic eruption, or…
