November 21, 2011 Next Alignment for Comet Elenin

This video describes the coming alignment of the comet Elenin on November 21st, the next major event in the comet’s journey. The comet will be fairly close to us in astronomical terms, at almost the distance of Mars (it will be travelling in Mars’ orbital plane). The comet may even be visible as it gets further away from the Sun. The video gives excellent instructions on how to find the comet on that date if it is visible by tracking it in relation to Jupiter. Jupiter dominates our skies because it’s so large, so it is a great guidepost when trying to track something else down in the same area.
