Hey Vic,

I am getting the NASA data again...although it has not changed.

NASA JPL

This is the same one we have been looking at correct?

Peace

Ok, i have a question:

I know its due on the East Coast at 3:33 AM but WHERE on Earth is it now?
Is this something that would hit different time zones at different times?
No?
I hate to sound stupid, but i risk it all the time.
Thank you.

Well, I have been watching the website with the magnetosphere simulation, and is it just me, or has it gotten a little better since about an hour ago?

It makes it's closest approach and then it goes away.

Shoots across the sky and it's gone...'til next the go around.

10-4 that's the one... the interesting bits are in the orbital elements link... and no the data hasn't changed... since I started following this back on about page 30... what a hit monster. NEODys hasn't anything new and is unlikely to report until after the event in 3 hours 5 minutes! Drambuie and milk! Shhh, it's unpasteurzied and illegal. LOL. Goes good with this stogie.

I'm going to sleep. If I wake up tomorrow morning, I'll know I'm not dead.

The rest of you...well, I have no words so never mind.

I think its a bit small to cause any major EMF problems its only 250 meters wide.
And its 330 thousand miles away.It looks close on the map.Its the closest we have had.Isnt it?1.4 LD's?Thats why its drawing so much attention because people can actually view it..
Does anyone know where is the best place to view it what country usually the astronomers say best viewed from etc etc I cant find anything like that on it.
??
Thanks

So do we know which continent will be most impacted by this?
(I'll stop in a minute, i swear)
Thanks.

It's not "here" yet. Best estimate without doing any math... 70 or 80 thousand miles beyond whatever loop distance it takes around our beautiful little planet. Soon, soon, soon. It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine! Tomorrow is always a new world.

No continent will be affected. It just isn't big enough to do much of anything unless it were to hit and it really can't hit. The physics just isn't there for that. There is zero to worry about except worry itself... worried about worrying? Hmmm. Is that even possible? LOL.

Might be unrelated but the entirety of online gaming servers here on the east coast of AUS are dropping out, most are down as of 10 mins ago. A few left fighting but they are unplayable.

Could be server updates or something, and i know it's not a problem on my end because of all the 'wtf' comments before the servers gave up.

Yes but usually there will be some news somewhere stating best to view point etc without getting technical yet I can find absolutely none.And im an experienced googler
So I find that weird they usually say where is best viewed from.

Now could you possibly be playing COD4 at a time like this when our sweetest lady resident, dgtempe, is asking you a question. SHAME on you.

Hey,

On a serious note, I was just outside and I think I saw a meteor - it was a really bright light, like a ball, going down fast

and there's some really bright stars too

I suggest going outside and look at the sky, perhaps we have a lot of meteors going on tonight?

It was COD4 actually... but not anymore though.

Several topics asking what is going on have opened on the hoster's forums so i'll see what they say.

Wish us luck for the finals series
Aus COD4 champions eeaaasy.

It's 50 times too "dark" to be seen with the naked eye. With a 3 inch tele you are supposed to be able to get it... I strongly doubt it can be followed without tracking motors. Best spots to view are in the Northern Hemisphere... best telescopes for it now? Goldstone and Arecibo... You'd kind of need some astronomy software to generate a ground track but since it is at a not unsubstantial distance a ground track is useless anyway... it's orbit is too far away... not like STS or ISS in LEO where you can just look up and see it.

Cheers,

Vic

Hello SpaceCake and welcome,

You hit the proverbial nail on the proverbial head. The media on this event has been minimal if not nil...often overshadowed by a falling sat and a Mars asteroid near miss.

Failing websites....shoot CNN has news up tonight about the sexual maturity age of Dinos but no mention of 2007 TU24 which is a fairly historic passing.

You would almost think they just don't want too many prying eyes watching or something as they harness this thing with our "nudge it a bit" technologies....why....because they can!

That's just my take on the situation. Cheers

On Edit....Listen to Vic though...because he doesn't talk about the sexual maturity of Dino's in his explanations....he actually makes sense!

Anyone else watching the magneto-simulator?? It's so interesting how those red and cyan lines are changing! I'm not worried about it, but I do find it interesting.
Be well.
