Note: Posted for fun, not because I really believe this... I think...



CONSPIRACY theorists are stocking up on food supplies amid fears the world could end in just THREE days when a total eclipse of the sun, super full moon and staggeringly close asteroid pass of earth are set to happen within 24 hours. On March 8 asteroid TX 68, a 30-metre long lump of space rock, is due to whistle past Earth as close as 19,000 miles away.

But doom mongers are not convinced it will miss us with fears we won't be able to see it because it will be obscured by the sun.

The looming event has sent online doomsday predictors into a frenzy, particularly as NASA admits it is uncertain of the orbital path and has given estimates as close as 19,000 miles away to as far as 11 million miles.

The US space agency has also changed the DAY of the pass with the initial date being given as TODAY, March 5.

Now NASA says it will be on Tuesday, March 8.

The uncertainty over the pass coupled with the fact some online doom mongers were predicting an asteroid would smash into earth in March 2016 several months ago, has fueled the latest fears.

Another comment:

"They now know it is moving slower or orbiting for slightly longer. It has a condition code of seven to nine and nine is the highest code of uncertainty.

"There is a cluster of debris coming with it we can't see because it is between Earth and the sun.

"They cannot see the object, are not picking it up on radar and have not given any new data.


It seems fireballs have been on the rise slightly lately? Could this be related?

Lol. I'm seriously bored. So what better way to stoke the fires of doommongering with a little fear factor?

And honestly, I do not know what to think about the supermoon affecting earthquakes. We have had some really big ones around supermoon times. Could these extra gravitational forces cause a diversion of the blind asteroid from an already uncertain path and make it slam us?

Well it appears we won't have long to wait and find out.

So let's see. 30 meters= about 99 feet long. Depending on what it's made of, it could definitely do some damage. But earth ending? No way, me thinks.

And NASA claims:

UPDATED ON FEB. 25 AT 2:40 P.M. PT:

Additional observations of asteroid 2013 TX68 have been obtained, refining its orbital path and moving the date of the asteroid's Earth flyby from March 5 to March 8.

The observations, from archived images provided by the NASA-funded Pan-STARRS asteroid survey, enabled scientists at NASA's Center for Near-Earth Object Studies (CNEOS) at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, to refine their earlier flyby and distance predictions, reconfirming that the asteroid poses no threat to Earth.

"We already knew this asteroid, 2013 TX68, would safely fly past Earth in early March, but this additional data allow us to get a better handle on its orbital path," said Paul Chodas, manager of CNEOS. "The data indicate that this small asteroid will probably pass much farther away from Earth than previously thought."

So apparently the "conspiracy theorists" are worried that the asteroid could be diverted by the additional forces of the supermoon and slam us.



Interestingly, we just had a 7.9 quake hit off Sumatra. Could that be a harbinger of worse to come? Also, statistically it seems we are about due for a larger quake somewhere. A conundrum of circumstance comes together to produce mega doom.


Please don't take this too seriously folks. On the other hand, you just never know.

I got to the part where they are stocking up on food in case the world is going to end.

Well, I am pretty sure that the moon's mass doesn't change just because of a super moon, so that's strike one. Strike two I suppose is that a 30 metre space rock is not exactly an ELE, so there is that too.

However, I also believe that we are moving through a more densely populated region of space as there does seem to be a large amount of debris lighting up our skies and filling up our telescopes. Just a quick look at spaceweather shows you that March is set to be a very busy month with regards to spacerocks!

Spaceweather.com

TX68 has been realigned to 13 lunar diameters, so not what it was a week or so ago.

Edit to add: 29919 km seems to be the closest possible approach, the uncertainty is high indeed. But still a smallish rock.

True, but if that same mass is closer to earth, the effects of the gravitational field could be increased and cause faults that otherwise would not rupture to do so. At least, that seems to be the theory. And not entirely unreasonable in my mind. Proving it, however, is difficult. We've had plenty of big earthquakes without the supermoon, too. So who knows.

Hehe!

Looks like my son is going to be having an interesting birthday then!

Several things to look out for in the heavens, bowling, burgers...it's going to be a magical day! Other than that, for those who have no particular interest in what happens outside our atmosphere, while maintaining only a passing familiarity with that which occurs within it, I would say it will be business as usual on Tuesday.

If the universe proves me wrong, I hope that the asteroid does not cause any damage to human life, in the event of its plummeting earthward, rather than passing by at 19,000 miles off or further.

Yes I understand what you are saying, but the motion of the moon is not a stranger to astronomers, so just because it is a supermoon, that doesn't meant it hasn't been calculated as such, if you know what I mean.

Lol you say this as a joke but it seems that astronomers are having serious problems calculating the speed and the exact direction of that bloody rock!

A remnant from a 99 foot wide meteor might leave a hole in your yard.
Yesterday I bought lawn fertilizer at Ace while it was still in stock just in case.
Maybe we should start thinking on a longer term scale and buy some fertilizer for the prepper vegetable garden?
The government monitors prepper web sites pretty closely.
I've already been warned by staff to keep my ad blocker off.

True that, even in jokes there are bits of truth.

I follow a few and have unfollowed others bc of this fear porn. Everything I read about tx68 will have u scared 1 minute then not sweating it on the next link. Thanks for posting.

30-metre long lump of space rock?


What will be the size when it burns through the atmosphere, ?

The pictures shown, really shows a hundred mile asteroid.

I hope that debris will fall down my garden , I will gladly sell it to you for a generous bid..

And you would get quite a sum of money for it, not sure if I would be praying for an asteroid to land in my garden though, the risks seem to rather outweigh the benefits.

bring to mind the LIVE NEWS Coverage of the desperation among the New Orleans/ Katrina victims... flooding galore, power out indefinitely, etc.
And LO & Behold there were dozens of scenes of looters, navigating through the debris, clutching a Large Flat Screen TV on a bee-line to their castle in the barrio

I had a dream that the sun was being covered by darkness it looked like something was moving to cover it up like an eclipse. And there was a clock on it like the hands I didn't see the hour or I didn't remember it but when I looked up and saw the eclipse happening I was terrified and so was everyone else around me and the dream ended. So

I guess I'll wait a few days before tilling the garden.
I'd be really upset if I did all that work and then the world ended.

My Daughter's birthday is the 9th. I feel this is a sign from the Gods that she shouldn't be allowed to reach maturity...

I'm joking seriously. My husband would never let me off the little she devil


He thinks I'm also joking about joining Green Peace or something of the such and just disappearing when she starts puberty too, Ha Jokes on him!!!

This is some awesome doomporn

If this was real porn it would need to be a full on hollywood extravaganza starring A list stars to be even close to being this awesome!!!

Its actually possible and based on 100% fact
Its got that spooky weird otherworldly feel to it with all te sun moon stuff going on
And best of all we only have 2 days to wait and see a metaphorical money shot

Hands down best doom porn I've ever seen, S&F for you

I've got a grocery delivery booked for Tuesday afternoon.

I hope the World ends before it's delivered rather than afterwards. I don't want to be charged for stuff that would no longer be any good to me.
