Tomorrow - a near earth asteroid is supposed to pass within .002 of earth. There WERE links that allegedly said it may hit the moon. Links are either falling off the internet or being pulled off ... more info to follow ...

POST info as ya'll find it ...

I have to go inform DGTEMPE of this ... gotta scare her!
Space weather doesn't have it up yet. Just NASA does.

Nope all the links show 404 errors on them now.

They went down one by one as I clicked on them to put into a thread.

Object 2007 BD

(2007 BD) 2007-Jan-18 02:52 ± < 00:01 0.8/0.0022 0.8/0.0022 7.60 7.44 1.69e+03 26.0 1 ATE[/exe]

Now, any concrete links to this are appreciated.

(2007 BD) 2007-Jan-18 0.0022 0.8 17 m - 38 m 7.60
(2001 BE10) 2007-Jan-19 0.1051 40.9 400 m - 900 m 11.13
(2007 BB) 2007-Jan-19 0.0026 1.0 7.8 m - 18 m 4.71

Both on the 18th and 19th - NASA has 2007BD and 2007BB being .002 from us. I'm still not finding times or info on a lunar hit that was discussed. I'll keep looking.

That's pretty damn close only 307,200 Kilometers away from Earth. Can we see asteroids from the Naked Eye at this distance? if so what time?

Just checking on my math lol...
384,000 * .8 = 307200 ...

Holy Gaucamole!...less than a lunar distance, it is realtively small (40 meters ) but I guess half a city could be leveled by such a thing.....keep eyes open and emergency kits handy...

Geminid meteors hit Some Geminid meteors hit the moon last week during the annual meteor shower. But I'm still not finding anything about THESE asteroids coming in tomorrow and the next day. I think it's new info??? Space Weater doesn't even have them up yet. Just NASA.

I'd even save those pages from nasa if i was you flyers.
Every link I had has gone.

I just am waiting to see if it comes up on

And yes like you i'd love to know where abouts in the skies they first saw these and more important when!

This is the orbit data for the asteroid for tomorrow. You can pull up any NEO asteroids that you wish with this and see the plotted paths. (well, those that NASA has in the data bank anyways)

When you use that Orbit Simulation and look at Jan 17 and Jan 20, Asteroid 2007 BD is lined up with Earth ahhh...the humanity!

posted on Jan, 17 2007 @ 05:44 PM
Offical word is that this will pass near, but there will be no impact with anything - not the moon not the earth.

So, thanks Flyers Fan for your help in gettting that straight.

Here it says miss distance is 0.0022AU, but in your orbit data, FlyersFan, it says 0.0019AU. I wonder if this means that it's getting closer than first expected...

Now I HAVE to worry because after trolling around a certain site yesterday after a thread HERE informed me that this OTHER site tends to kill links to THIS site, I figured I would dismiss THEIR thread on the very same topic that I now am following HERE.

Phew, glad THAT'S off my chest.

Oh, wait....ASTEROID!!!!

I'm such a nutball!

posted on Jan, 17 2007 @ 06:20 PM
like nasa would say anything even if it was to be close or actually hit the earth....slightly off topic but, anybody have links to any pics of the impact sites of the geminid impact areas on the see what a known impact crater would look like??

posted on Jan, 17 2007 @ 06:36 PM
I'm not very cluey about these issues, but is there any way to figure out the 'if it did hit, what part of earth would it hit'... like by figuring out the times and which part of Earth would be facing it at the time etc etc...

Not that i'm worried or anything *hides clammy hands*... just asking??!

The gravity of the Earth and the gravity of the moon will have an effect on its path as well. We know how the moon's gravity produce tides here on Earth. Imagine what it will do to a small rock...

Can this be seen ? and if so is it in which hemisphere ? Does anyone have any links to how it can be viewed ?

posted on Jan, 17 2007 @ 07:07 PM


But seriously folks, if it hits lets hope it hits the ocean. Oh wait....tsunami

Here's something from an anonymous poster

This anonymous post is in response to ATS thread: .002 AU Near Earth Asteroid tomorrow

you people crack me up...

On 18 Jan 2007 there were 832 known Potentially
Hazardous Asteroids

The site provided is pretty weak, but I figured it's a viewpoint that needs a voice in this thread. I'm still curious how it's gonna turn out.

That's scary! Holy crud, something that close could easily be yanked into our orbit, couldn't it?

posted on Jan, 17 2007 @ 07:18 PM
Wow, that's coincidental, I had a weird sixth sense of gravity today, one that stretched beyond Pluto. It was a semi-physical awareness of the gravity of all the planets we don't name that are in the sun's system. It seemed to root directly in the chakras extending out with visceral certainty, like the imprint of an astral bodies attempt to flee the last planets gravity.
(Walkings' the bomb.)

Maybe we're are approaching the event horizon of our much beloved Venus transient consciousness shift. Or maybe we're about to be hit by incoming. lol

Such is life learning the 5 B's.

So on top of having to move tommorrow I gotta worry about TEOTWAWKI. Gee thanks...

Actually 40 meters would make a hell of a hole in the ground, depending on speed and trajectory.

Oooooh. That actually made me sound like I know something about this stuff. Cool...

So is DG scared? That's pretty mean of you, Flyer
