Ok folks, here is a story of a small, relatively unknown Astroid BeXB1Uu ... strange name that!

So the story is, as per the MPC, this 'real object' (and not a 1st April hoax) is supposed to pass just about 1 ~ R Earth.

That's pretty close, if you know the terminologies. Also, interestingly, scientific community has a divergent array of thoughts about this, astroid/ (soon to be a meteorite)and its trajectory. What is confirmed is that by tomorrow night(for Asia/ next morning for the US) this thing will pass our sky's, close...astronomically very very close.
Should we be worried? Scientists say, it is not an impactor. They say this will not hit Earth.

But hay, who knows such probabilistic maths?
Psedo - MPSE
www.projectpluto.com...

Also note that the NEO H=23 (...) but the other (unofficial) site shows 32. That's an important difference...so the crux is, the trajectory and the size are a big ? It is a huge "unknown".

Will it impact tomorrow night? Or not? Is another question unanswered.

Update: The MOID is > 1 R_Earth (0.0001AU), so I think that puts it outside of the hit zone. Just. Or maybe I misinterpret?

Now, only asia and Russia/a few europian countries might see this worth their telescopes and pillows!

Now he won't disturb us any more?

Take a look at @SungrazerComets's Tweet: twitter.com...

As far as I can tell, this isn't a hoax. These are serious astronomers and scientific minds.

Firstly if it hits Asia today it will be known to our Us friends the date 03/31/16. Happy Fools Day LOL

Nothing on JPL's twitter account, 'Asteroid watch' since 24th March, and that was a 'dark comet' (looks like an Asteroid)
twitter.com...

Yuh not supposed to do AF pranks before April 1st, or after 12noon on the day....It's bad luck!


Newznose, your job was on the 17th March, St Paddy's day!

This isn't a prank.

The object can be found listed here:

www.minorplanetcenter.net...

It's listed in the Minor Planet Center of the IAU.

It's real.

The designation, BeXB1Uu, is a temporary designation. It was just discovered today. It's quite small, and orbital observations have been few. They don't expect an impact though, but it will come close.

What about the rest on that page, nearly all at 100% NEO classification...it's a fecking invasion!

Why is that a strange name?

Shooting gallery.

Earth gets hit with something like 13,000 things everyday. Most are quite small and burn up in our upper atmosphere.

Go look at how many were discovered today......and while they are small, think about all the ones we missed and did not see, either because they are way too small, too dark, or passed us by on the daylight side.

brrrrrrr........

It's just a temporary alphanumeric designation by the IAU.

Later, as long as it has a stable orbit and doesn't end up in the sun, flung out of the solar system, or devoured by a planet, it will get a more proper designation, like (90377) Sedna, or something like that.

Great thread and great thread control.
Many objects hit the Earth daily but
rarely do any that close, have names.

So I'll always take notice if it's known, receives a name and
would hit Earth, if Earth had a conjoined twin.

Size matters of course.

On the Project Pluto website link in the OP, there's a section that is marked as "redacted."

Why is that?

This is a conspiracy site after all....

This asteroid is supposedly only 1 to 2 meters wide. If it hit our atmosphere, it would explode very high up, and you'd be lucky to even hear the "boom" on the ground.

Given the scant observation data gathered so far, at the closest approach the asteroid (or more like a meteoroid) will be so faint that you'd need a very good telescope to see it.

The real sensation here is that the astronomers were able to spot such a small object in space.

No, bolides and fireballs happen every year, multiple times per year. And they last only seconds, not hours like you tried suggesting.

I know the rock isn't a hoax. But saying that it'll hit Earth is.

Well, it was only measured at a couple of metres, but it was very close, (0.0000812 AU (12,150 km; 7,550 mi NGD) slice off the surface of the Earth to it's centre whatever that is, and there is not a lot of space left.
Anyway, maybe someone has it pictured passing.
