Looking on www.spaceweather.com we have this little beauty ssd.jpl.nasa.gov...
Thats one big momma and only spotted this year. Something a 20th this size could do big doodah. If this asteroid hit it would be catistroidus. I
wonder if we could have done anything to avoid calamity of such a big asteroid,on a direct path,with such short notice. So my question to ats is could
we done something in relation to the above asteroid if it was earthbound.
Dont worry it will not come closer than 3 moons away,,still pretty close, but we have only recently spotted it and its big.
Nice bit of doom porn for you all......
Notes: LD means "Lunar Distance." 1 LD = 384,401 km, the distance between Earth and the Moon. 1 LD also equals 0.00256 AU. MAG is the visual magnitude
of the asteroid on the date of closest approach.
Its 650 meters wide and was discovered in april.
We have to get better at finding these things and have a comprehensive short term plan to deal with these huge rocks.
