Can someone please help me out here.
I went to the thread that dlk gave us, below and .00377 can't be right can it? Can someone check out the validity on this please. I will be
searching as well. If my calculations are right, this particular astroid will be closer to the earth than the moon, which would mean we are in a lot
of trouble. Also someone might want to check my math on this one, because this is pretty serious. 1 divided by .00377 equals 262.251; 149,597,871
kilometers divided by 262.251 equals 563,988 kilometers. The moon is 1,533,086 kilometers from the earth.
HEADS UP 2004 MRI. 21 June 2004 close approach.
HEADS UP RE newly- discovered NEO 2004 MRI. 21 June 2004 close approach. 1.47 ld 0.00377 AU's.
Link is neo.jpl.nasa.gov...
It approaches closer than Itokawa, closer than Toutakis. TOMORROW NOT JUNE 20TH.
I saw this on one of the boards. I went to the NASA Close approaches page and saw this new NEO.
I) 2004 MR1 on the 21st of June, tomorrow, approaches closer
than Itokawa, on 26th June.
II) 2004 MRI also closer than Toukakis.
