Today marks the beginning of the Elenin alignment.

The alignment between Earth, Comet Elenin, the Sun, and Mercury will span a distance of 210 million miles, while Venus will also be ‘nearly’ in alignment. Elenin will be 33 million miles from us during this date, however Earth will pass close or through Elenin’s debris field later, during the first week of November, which may prove interesting. But uh… other than that, enjoy something neat that is about to happen in space for the next three days!
