Months ago, lots of blabber and paranoia around the net began when Comet Elenin was discovered and the conspiracies and doomsday predictions began. From the beginning, very reputable scientists attempted to assure us that it would have the affect on earth that a speck of dust would on your car, however, the ‘trust no one’ crowd began immediately saying it was all a cover up for the end of the world that was coming, long before the Mayan ‘prophecies’ would occur. I cried foul.
Then people started exclaiming that there were UFO’s even following it and perhaps it wasn’t a comet at all but a mothership of extraterrestrials with it’s fleet following behind it. I cried foul again. Over and over and over again I felt the need to try to calm the nerves of those poor souls that fell for the bad press the comet was receiving with TMZ style coverage. But who am I anyway? Just some chick who has been studying UFO sightings and astronomy for more years that I wish to admit so I’m sure the people that post the CGI UFO videos of invasions in Haiti with their Cheetoh dust covered fingers and declare them as real are way more credible than I am. Right?
Oh but pardon me while I hold back my chuckles when we now learn that a solar flare has pretty much eliminated the pesky space critter and now it’s disintegrating at a rather comical pace (see the then and now image above), and I’m saying comical because don’t forget that this was going to bring on Armageddon according to many of the fear mongers that call themselves ‘ufologists’.
So once again, this website has stood its ground and was correct. My only hope is that eventually, these sites that scream from the mountain tops that every bit of space junk and every little oddity means the imminent destruction of humanity, even going as far as listing death tolls for the intergalactic war between the Grays and Reptilians will eventually lose such a gullible audience. Then people will start taking other websites like this one and other credible internet hubs a little more serious.
Goodbye Comet Elenin! You were loved and hated, but now you will be missed. Fear not, there’s always Planet X to fall back on for mankind’s demise.
