An asteroid designated 2008 BT18 will pass close to Earth today in the closest pass to Earth forcasted for this year.

It will be as close as 5.9LD or 2.265 million Kms (i hope).

Measuring between .65 and 1.4kms in diameter, we want to hope NASA has this right.

See the orbit here :

Before I get chipped ( deservedly) I was incorrect.

There are 2 others that will pass closer.

2005 VN at 4.1 LD

2003 WT153 at 5.8.

My apologies.

These are also smaller than 2008 BT18

This is our rocks.


Asteroid 2008BT18 is considered “potentially hazardous” by NASA because its orbit has not been fully determined.

Due to this uncertainty, there is a tiny chance that some day it could collide with Earth.

Asteroids are commonly known to change their trajectory primarily due to the Sun’s gravity.

I just saw something pass over my roof at 1:13 am pacific time, but not sure it was an asteroid. It looked like a meteor or is it meteorite, maybe a fireball. It wasn't a shooting star. It had a long, wide flaming tail, mostly white, bit of orange, travelling from south to north, lasting about 3 seconds before burning out.
