I would like to bring up a possible issue…comet Elenin is going to make a very close approach to earth.
The first item of note is that, with the update on the orbit of Elenin, which was made on 09 Jan 11, that is 9-1-11 (interesting, no?), it is scheduled to reach perihelion on the 9th of September, that is: 9-9-11. Another interesting numerical combo.
An interesting alignment occurs right around the autumnal equinox where we have Earth, Comet Elenin, the Sun and almost Mercury lined up like ducks.
Also, from Lunatic Outpost, via Moey:
This thing is going to be very interesting. Might make a very close approach. Stay tuned…
