Hi, whilst it is no threat. it does in my mind raise a question relating to Elenin......if Elenin does exert a gravitational pull greater than a comet, surely 2011 MD will be pulled away from the Earth given there relative position, thus debunking or confirming the Brown Dwarf theory.
The flip side of course would be, why was it only discovered Wednesday, is it because Elenin has pulled it closer to Earth!!!......my head hurts, any thoughts or info anyone

Ahhhhh ha! Interesting. And it was spotted by a group in Soccoro, New Mexico near the Very Large Array, the Trinity Site, White Sands and Roswell. Intersting indeed. Slingshot?
