The real danger is that there will be some fluctuation in the magnetic currents which surround the earth. In the charts that everyone is talking
about, (magnetic field live map)
you see some red lines and some blue lines.
These are the positive and negative fields of the magnetosphere.
They are pretty turbulent right now, which means that there is something pulling on them. You even see the negative and positive lines crossing to
opposite sides of the globe right now (as I am typing this) and getting pretty chaotic. Is that "bad"? No, it just means that there is something
that is exhibiting an additional influence on the magnetic currents around the earth. It could very well be TU24 doing this. In fact, I would think it
Is the earth going to survive? Of course. Are we going to die? Not because of this interference.
This happens sometimes. Back several years ago when Pakistan and India were testing their nukes, the magnetosphere went nuts for several hours. Same
Bottom line is that the asteroid is currently, at least from the last readings we had before JPL went bye-bye, going to miss hitting the earth by
hundreds of thousands of miles.
It looks like it's somehow exhibiting some influence on our magnetosphere. What does that mean? The magnetosphere is doing it's job and keeping us
I'm going to bed, my 2 sons are going to bed, my wife is going to bed, and we will all sleep like babies and wake to a world that's normal tomorrow
If it makes you feel more secure, it wouldn't hurt to power off your electronics, just in case of a severe magnetic storm, but that's just a normal
precaution I take even during excessive solar activity.
Peace out and sleep well.
