Asteroid to make close approach
Here is that bad boy coming for us:
Doesn't look so bad does it? Too bad its traveling at thousands of miles per hour...
The news story is covering pretty much the same things that have been discussed throughout the whole thread so nothing new I guess.

8:33 am in England, that's 3:33 am in New York and 1:33 am where I live...So a little over TWO
hours and there should be some severe magnetic
Expect your tv, internet, cell phone, and power to have some disturbances.
I'd get a back packed and ready to go.
Holy crap...I wonder if the last 2 days of pouring rain has anything to do with this?
Is an asteroid known to affect weather in such a way?
We are not in the monsoon season right now and it should not be raining this hard in Arizona...
I'm going to further investigate this matter.
