So..... more doom porn

this just popped up in my newsfeed, and it is very interesting, and could possibly linked to this thread: Hearsay doom porn at it's best !

has this been on any of my fellow ATS's Radar? is the MSM using conspiracy websites for news now????




An asteroid that has been hurtling towards earth amid fears it could wipe out all life is due to fly past the planet TOMORROW 16th June.

Many people around the globe have spent the last week preparing for the 'asteroid apocalypse', and this latest rock will reach us tomorrow - but speed right past.

The massive space rock has been closed monitored by scientists at NASA as it has the potential to completely devastate the entire world.

An internet channel, the Slooh telescope, is monitoring the rock's movements tomorrow and is planning to show its journey live online.

A Slooh spokesman said: "Slooh will be showing live views of Potentially Hazardous Asteroid Icarus, on the day of its closest approach, as it passes within just 5 million miles of Earth.
"Like its namesake, this space rock is getting in trouble for flying too close. Join Slooh for a live show to have a look at this 1 km long asteroid and learn why it’s an important object for astronomers to study and understand."

Although this asteroid will miss, there have been claims another is due to hit the Earth in September.

An online community of end-of-time bloggers had speculated that the huge asteroid would hit the Earth sometime between September 22-28 and would wipe out civilization.

Meanwhile biblical theorists were anticipating the asteroid would trigger the Rapture and the start of a seven-year tribulation.

Following widely publicized fears, NASA released a statement aimed at calming people down.

the statement said: "NASA knows of no asteroid or comet currently on a collision course with Earth, so the probability of a major collision is quite small.

"In fact, as best as we can tell, no large object is likely to strike the Earth any time in the next several hundred years."

But regardless of Nasa's insight, the conspiracy theories are in abundance.

One blogger has even claimed a controversial US military exercise is in fact preparation for the asteroid.

A huge military exercise called Jade Helm soon will take place across multiple US states with 1,200 troops participating - but details of its purpose are scarce.

Now Armageddon conspiracists are linking Jade Helm to their predictions of the asteroid hitting Earth in September.

The blogger on the Whistleblower800 website, which claims to lift the lid on government corruption, suggested Jade Helm was an "insurance policy" in case an asteroid hit and riots broke out.

He wrote: "If we make it to fall, JH will just be a training exercise.

"If not, Jade Helm will have troops in place to put down what is going to be pandemonium and revolution.

"For us, even if we don't live in the inner cities where the riots are bound to begin, the worst part is that we have been set up to be the opposition.

"The US military will shoot at us, because we will be seen as fools refusing to accept the sacrifices required to save our planet.

"If those of us with the guns don't wake up to it now, we are setting ourselves up for imprisonment and slaughter."

In 2011, Christian broadcaster Harold Camping predicted that the world would end on May 21 of that year.

He said that ‘Judgement Day’ would take place on May 21, when Jesus would return to Earth and the “righteous” would be taken up to Heaven.

Camping, who ran Christian broadcast channel Family Radio, was reportedly “flabbergasted” when the world continued as usual on that day.

I want a ticket on the doom train! I missed the last extinction event in 2012.... But I'm up for this one. Got my tinfoil hat outta the closet and standing in my yard. Can't wait.

The Mirror is your source? Come on now that's a rag mag! They talk about vampire boys and reptilian royals.

NO there is no asteroid about to hit Earth..

Astronomy Now




Classified as an Apollo asteroid, 1566 Icarus has an orbital resonance with Earth that causes it to make close approaches to our planet in the month of June at intervals of nine, 19 and 28 years, but never close enough to pose a threat of collision. The flyby of June 16th — 5,004,000 miles (8,053,000 kilometres) or 0.05383 astronomical units — is the nearest occurring between the years 1968 and 2090 (for comparison, the last close approach of 1996 was 9.4 million miles, or 39 times the Earth-Moon distance). Fortunately for observers in the British Isles, Icarus will be well placed for observation for this apparition and will reach magnitude +13.5 as it speeds across the northern night sky.



So no no asteroid is hitting us and Jade Helm has nothing to do with it. Jade Helm exercises are in JULY!

5 million miles of Earth


Isn't that almost six times further then our moon?

"In fact, as best as we can tell, no large object is likely to strike the Earth any time in the next several hundred years."


But we can still depend on little ones hitting the earth daily 24/7.

How in the #### is any one supposed to make any sense
out of that?

No...it is about 20 times as far away as the moon.

If this report qualifies as "doom porn", then regular porn would consist of a girl who is naked under her underwear, jeans and a sweater, wool socks, Eskimo boots, and a Parka, inside of a lead room with no windows, which is forty miles away from any microphone or video camera.

Watch the Asteroid LIVE


Well let's do a little math.

Distance of Earth to the Moon = ~240,000 miles
Distance this asteroid will PASS the Earth = 5 million miles

That's over 20 LUNAR DISTANCES.

I hate when people and MSM sites try to capitalize on people's ignorance of distances in space.

BTW: there ARE hazardous asteroids which have passed the Earth much closer, 2012 DA14 (aka 367943 Duende) a 98 foot asteroid which flew past the Earth at a distance of around 21,000 miles the same day another asteroid stole the show when it broke up over Russia came so close to the Earth that it was within the Clarke Belt of geosynchronous satellites.

If it were ever to impact Earth, it would enter the atmosphere at a speed of 12.7 km/s, would have a kinetic energy equivalent to 2.4 megatons of TNT creating an airburst event similar to the Tunguska explosion. If it happened over a populated area a lot of people would be killed or injured.

So potentially hazardous asteroids are out there, by chicken little stories like this undermine efforts to get public support for tracking them when Mr or Ms. uneducated sees such efforts and discounts them with "Meh, those things always pass the Earth, they're just trying to get more clicks on the story."
