Full Story: The Nation

Comet Elenin, considered by some as the Doomsday Comet if it collides with earth, eyed us from a closest ever distance since its discovery in 2010. The Comet zoomed past us at a distance of 35,000 kilometers in the early hours of Sunday morning. But the guest was went by past us unseen except by a few astronomers and astronomy lovers. Comet Elenin is a 3-5 km wide chunk of space ice that is keenly monitored by sky gazers.
