Comet Elenin Connection to Rosh Hashanah

Posted: September 26, 2011 in Comets, Feast of Trumpets, Signs In The Heavens

Comet Elenin was discovered on 10 December 2010 by  Leonid Elenin, a Russian amateur astronomer. It will make its closet path to earth October 16, 2011 during Sukkot, the Feast of Tabernacles. The timing of the passes to earth give Elenin its significance. The first pass will be during Rosh Hashanah, September 28-29, 2011 and the second pass during Sukkot.

Astronomer Elenin wrote September 3, 2011: As many readers already know, Comet Elenin has begun the irreversible process of  breaking up.

Comets are ‘big frozen dirt balls’. Newsweek’s article of 1998 regarding Hale Bopp Comet says, “This comet was last seen in these parts 4200 years ago (before Abraham of 2213 BC). “Comets are big frozen dirtballs, an estimated 100 billion of them were created at the same time as the sun and the planets. Most of their days comets float anonymously in a halo called an ort cloud, a backwoods of space way past Pluto. But once in a while gravitational jolts from passing stars send a comet hurdling from the kingdom of ice into a trip around the sun. Comets are of the wandering children of the solar system. They were present at the creation some 4 billion years ago and living in the cold storage in the outer solar system they haven’t changed much.”

God many times will use a comet as a sign of upcoming events. Job 38:22, “Have you entered the treasury of snow, Or have you seen the treasury of hail(23) Which I have reserved for the time of trouble, For the day of battle and war?

Comet Elenin was about 2-3 miles (3-5 km) wide, while the sun is roughly 865,000 miles  (1,392,082 km) across.  This is small compared to the ‘giant’ or larger comets seen in our atmosphere. The Comet of 1729, Comet McNaught (below), Haley’s Comet and Hale Bopp Comet were giants compared to Elenin. (see 9/25/11 blog of Significant Comets)


Below is a chart from regarding the timing of Elenin’s pass.

The timing of the passings on the Hebrew calendar month make it very interesting. On the 28th it will be the beginning of the moon cycle (head of the month). When the moon begins a cycle and when the moon is full it always affects the earth, such as high tides and more chances of mining accidents. How this will affect the earth is still to be seen. However, all reports are that it has been breaking up and nothing will happen.

Next on the calendar is Comet Garradd……………….9/22/11 – 4/19/12
