First Blurry Pictures of Near-Miss Asteroid Released


www.foxnews.com

Astronomers have obtained the first images of an asteroid on course to make its closest approach to Earth on Tuesday, showing the space rock is lopsided.

The new images, taken with the Goldstone Solar System Radar Telescope in California's Mojave Desert, refine estimates of the asteroid's size.

well you're welcome but um.. I did a search and came up with nothing so I posted... Didn't know someone would rush to point out it's "old news" when it's brand spankin' new to me... Perhaps I'm not the only one who missed it the first time around hmmm?

It was news to me. Thanks for posting. I do wish the image was clearer, though.

You'd be right... on at least 3 continents. The NASA/JPL radar composite from Jan 25...

Maybe I am nit-picking here but I sincerely hope it isn't a "near-miss" as stated in the thread title. A "near-miss" means it HIT. A "near-hit" means that it barely missed.

OMG! I didn't even realize.. near miss.....
I don't know whether to laugh or be afraid!
IS it a fruedian slip? Whith all the hoopla and worry by ATS'ers over this thing that little misnomer could be enough to see some people off.. if ya know what I mean...

I mean... "Hey ... look at that huge crater!! darn son!! that asteroid NEARLY MISSED us....."

YIKES!

Great news to bad it isn't passing by the moon so we could get a closer look
, but I'll be looking toward the sky with my telescope. An this is old news but no one has a post saying today is the day, so this is new.

This event has been discussed on ATS for more than a week now I think, in this thread
www.abovetopsecret.com...

But as some of you points out, you never heard about it before today. That's because MSN didn't report it before today.

Visit the thread, it's a fine exsample of how we can be waaay ahead of MSN.

Also I better remind you to stay civil to those who didn't notice it before today.

Yes, Thanks for the post. I have not seen this before your post. It seems threads come and go so quickly on here (in the recent post section) that I tend to miss quite a lot and normally don't go searching for anything.

Once again, even though they say it has been posted before, thank you for posting it for those of us that have yet to see this!
