Have I got it ALL wrong?! (Elenin)
Today I bumped into this youtube video, which got me pretty confused. The guy is showing what he thinks is Elenin, and that it's visible to the eye (and not his camera). What confuses me, is that I understood Elenin will approach us from the east, even though the youtuber claims it's coming from the west.



Have a look at the JPL site, like in the video. If we're facing the sun at noon, the east should be on our left hand. I can see something glowing at the sky from sunset onwards here in the Netherlands, Europe, and tend to believe it's getting closer every day. The guy is claiming to video at sunrise though, so his approaching comet/astroid is coming from the west.

Can somebody explain to me what's going on here? Are we now facing two astroids earthbound at high speed?! uhoh

Re: Have I got it ALL wrong?! (Elenin)
Astro said that he could barely see it with a telescope so I'm highly doubting that this guy is seeing Elenin. The planets are lined up right now so I'm wondering if this guy saw a planet and mistook is for the comet. Terrell said that Elenin was right now in the Leo constellation so I have an iPhone with a really cool app on it. It identifies every visible star and planet so tonight, if it's clear, I'll look myself and see if anything isn't identified. I'll post if I notice anything out of the ordinary :)

What direction is the object that you are seeing??? I'll see if I can identify it. What does it look like and I may be able to put in a different location and it may show me the sky in that area. If I find that I can do that, I will put in a location close to you. This app is really neat and it will be even more neat if I could use a different location. It wouldn't tell me the name if it was an unknown planet or even comet Elenin but it would tell me if what you are seeing is suppose to be there or not.

Also what time do you see it exactly because I'm in the US so we would be seeing it at different times.

Whatever I'm seeing, I see it at sunset and its almost time now so I'm going outside to look. I'll let you know if I notice anything tonight and I'll check back here for your time and what it looks like. Have a great day :)

Thanks again! Went out for a smoke, but the coulds are covering my view.

It's the first planet that appears in the sky at the east, even before full sunset, and it looks orange. The other planets gradually appear too as the sun sets further. Tried to take a photo today, even though I knew up ahead a cell is useless for that. Will try again tomorrow eve with a handheld, even though that ain't the best quality either.

Still one question remains, shouldn't Elenin come from the east, as opposed to the youtuber's claim it's coming from the west?
