Wow, as if this Japan UFO madness isn't, well, mad enough. Now, we've got some incoming Comet Elenin news. And the news is there's no news. Move along folks, nothing to see here....
|No Comet Elenin. But what is that? A galaxy?|
"It's still early in the game, but reports from visual and photographic observers over the past few weeks have tempered expectations somewhat. Those looking for Comet Elenin by eye have found it elusive. Only two observers — Jakub Koukal, using a 9½-inch (24-cm) reflector in the Czech Republic; and Juan José González Suárez, using an 8-inch Schmidt-Cassegrain in Spain — feel certain they glimpsed it by eye in early April. But it was a no-show for comet-hunter Alan Hale, who had a larger telescope at a pitch-black site 7200 feet (2200 m) up."The very next day, SydneyStarGazers.com confirmed this story.
"This is the latest picture of where Elenin should be…. and it should be located right smack in the middle of the picture. We will process this picture later to look for any signs of comet Elenin."But that's not the interesting part - never mind that Comet Elenin is a rumored cover story, - no, seriously, NEVER MIND THAT, it's apparently not interesting at all that astronomers can't spot the comet. Here's the interesting part.
"But we did notice something unusual. In the bottom left hand corner we have pointed out an interesting object which in all purposes looks like a galaxy. But we are not exactly sure which one it is because according to our star charts, there shouldn’t be one in that location."

Hey, I don't think Google is telling us anything, but I do think they know all about those Google searches we've all been doing as a curious collective (I work in the Internet industry, so I know Google, plus know what searches lead here) and are very intentionally fucking with us.
