Will Comet Elenin  be a harbinger of destruction?

Yesterday,  I took a phone call from a Lady asking about  this Comet, discovered by Russian astronomer Leonin Elenin  this past December..
She wanted to know if  we could confirm the possibility of fragments of the Comet, when it sweeps closest to the earth October 16th 2011,
  might hit the earth, and  bring the "end times".
Of course, she had seen some information  and videos on Youtube and  wasn't quite sure whether to believe them or not.

I suggested that she purchase  our special "Comet Protection Pills".......ok, just kidding here, but these were actually being  sold
back in 1910 when Halley's Comet returned.

A few weeks ago, I spoke to another individual, who when I mentioned  I was an amateur astronomer,  also asked me
about the effects that this Comet would have on the earth. She too, had seen some "stuff on the internet" and had real concerns about
what the effects might be.  The scary part is, that she was seriously concerned about it!

For some reason, it seems this particular comet, while small in size,  has attracted a lot of attention and doomsday predictions and
also attracted the conspiracy theorist types, who claim the US government knows all about the impending doom, and has secretly built
bunkers for officials..

Now, here is the real deal on Comet Elenin. It is approximately a few kilometres across, and about one trillionth the mass of our Moon.
At a distance of approximately 35 million kilometres, it will have no effect on the earth whatsoever.

For amateur astronomers who wish to observe this Comet, it will be relatively small, however definitely worth checking out.

Besides, according to the Mayan Calendar, the world is going to end in 2012, so what's the rush?................
