On my iPhone so I can't post links right now but I want to get this info out ASAP. Will update later. Anyway, there's a giant asteroid coming out way that's so big Astronomers are calling it a beast. This asteroid is thought to be as much as a mile wide and it's closest approach will be around June 11-12. Sorry to be so sketchy but I'm in a rush right now.

The Beast link

Now they think its only about 1000 feet wide and will pass 3 times the distance as our moon, so no worries

National Geographic - Watch as Beast Asteroid Sails Past Earth This Week


A giant asteroid will silently glide by Earth this week, a stark reminder of cosmic dangers lurking nearby .

Measuring about 1,067 feet (325 meters) wide, the space intruder nicknamed “the Beast,” more formally known as HQ124, has an estimated width equal to an aircraft carrier (earlier estimates had been even larger). It will be three lunar distances away from Earth at its closest approach on Thursday, so thankfully there is no risk to our planet.

However, it’s a big one and we didn’t notice its approach until April 23. While it’s nothing new, thanks to dedicated telescope surveys, to hear about asteroids whizzing past Earth or the moon, it is unusual to see such a large one go unnoticed for so long.


Kinda snuck up on them ....

Get it out ASAP

If it's not going to hit what's the hurry?

Thanks for the info but I'd rather a detailed read with links and rather than a rush post for stars

1,067 feet is a bit short of a mile. Typical reporting...

Reading the article looks like we wont be able to see it with the naked eye right?
Or did i miss something

Whoa....even if they did find it a while back and it was headed for impact, not a whole lot we could do....just watch and hope it doesn't hit land anywhere close to home. Wouldn't do much if it touched down in the ocean, but a land impact would be something to see...

It's not listed as a naked eye object.
And Space Weather Doesn't have anything up ...

CNN has dumped the story. Not before 23,000 people shared it.

Only 1000 feet wide depending on its composition, short of it being all Iron or its like, we have the capability to destroy this Beast with Nukes should the need arise, provided of course its velocity's not to great, but that's not an issue since its going to miss.

Every year, or every few months now it seems we get these posts about our impending demise from a massive asteroid ..

Thanks guys. I'm finally back and able to properly "fill" this thread. The name is asteroid 2014 HQ124 and it will come within 3 Lunar distances on Sunday June 8.



The asteroid 2014 HQ124, which is the size of a football stadium, poses no chance of hitting Earth in its flyby on Sunday (June 8), and will pass by at a range of three times the distance between the Earth-moon on Sunday (June 8). It was discovered on April 23 by NASA's Wide-Field Infrared Survey Explorer, a sky-mapping space telescope.

"I read them. I still hold myself accountable to get the information out properly."

Why hold yourself accountable for an asteroid that is going to miss? Where's the information or news there considering this happens all the time?

Don't worry mate, on this occasion the sky is not about to fall.
