Hey, we got a close one comming by at the end of this month!

click on orbit simulation and stop on June 29.

0.015au or 5 lunar distances.

Thats almost as close as Toutatis will be on Sept 29 (0.011 AU)
Toutatis

The differences between Toutatis and Itokawa is that Toutatis is almost twice the size of Itokawa. That this is the closest that Toutatis has come since the 1300s, that Toutatis has a totally unique rotation. And finally that Toutatis is predicted to be 4 lunar distances away if it stays on this course. There has been lots of speculation about Toutatis. Itokawa on the other hand will be at its closest with two other NEO sumultaneously.

This could be a reason why the ships are out at sea, I don't really know for sure, but the link is interesting in regards to the Itokawa scenario.

I read your posting and the link - however I can't find the antarctic earthquake that the link refers to... when was this?

Well all i can say is that im watching the news with nervous anticipation.

There has been so many, the world is endings here I just don't worry-BTW I am not saying that was your point, I think you just posted a point of interest.
I will bet all my ATS points to anyone who feels lucky that nothing major will happen in June or September.
Ok, who out there is brave enough to put up or shut up, just pick the date(in 2004) and we will see. I figure it this way, either I get your points or we all die and you wouldn't get my points anyway. Any Takers?

Do you have any links regarding this ?

There are three Potentially Hazardous Asteroids (PHA) at their closest to Earth from 18 to 26 June 2004.

June 18, 2004 2004 LY5
June 19, 2004 2004 LC2
June 26, 2004 25143 1998 SF36

Note that LY5 and LC2 were spotted for the first time in 2004.

There is one Near Earth Object (NEO)at the same time:

June 24, 2004 2004 LA10

And two more Near Earth Objects a little further away during the same time.

June 24, 2004 2000 AG6
June 26, 2004 2002 AA29


All these details can be checked on

I don't see one either - check it for yourself HERE

Is there anybody that knows where we can see an interactive chart of orbits for these PHAs and NEOs for 18 to 26 June. May be a little late too care we are almost there. I don't really think there is anything to worry about, but it would be an intersting excercise to see how closely the asteroids pass eart and each other.

Hmmm, I believe the AussiBloke thing is an aboslute Hoax, but it does seem as if he attained some of his 'information'from some sources listed in this thread - if you check the dates for the potentially hazardous rocks bound for eath, it all relates to what Aussiebloke said. Well, too bad it didn't last long eh

Well two more weeks as this AB subject will be dead one way or another.

Are there no takers for this excercise?

No, I was not looking to start anything, I have heard about all the doom and gloom projected for the world in the comming weeks, could care less.

I open the space weather site at least one a week to check on solar activities so I dont fry my Satellite systems, and I take a look at the NEO projections just to see what is flying by, and this one at the end of the month will be close, but not as close as the one in January 04.

Its a good site with information I need to protect my investments and I am pleased that its available to the public.

Here is a link to NEO approach tables future and past.

Seems Like the 27th is the closest point, at .0129 Whats that about 1.5 Million KilM The distance to the moon Ave 394,401 kilometers, so seems pretty far, but yet so damm close

Like busses, there'll be another along in a moment.

I started a thread on this asteroid last week.. This is what I had to say, including a link to an interactive chart



Asteroid 25143 Itokawa Getting Close

I was looking for scheduled meteor showers for June and I came across an orbit diagram from NASA can be found here

neo.jpl.nasa.gov...

Around the end of June is when it comes the closest June 29 it is 0.015 Astronomical Units away and if i did my math correctly thats 1,394,337.1118915532 miles

Infact, according to this site,

newton.dm.unipi.it...:Itokawa;main

It will be the closest this month for atleast the next 70 years.

Maybe this is where Aussie Bloke got his idea?

And, Is that a good distance for observing with a 6" Telescope? It's diamater is only 0.36 KM....

Hey there - my point has been and remains that we have 6 NEO in the sky at the same time - fairly close to each other. How will they interact with each other. Other than that there are two Potentially Hazardous Asteroids during 2004 that has the potenital to knock the poles right out of us. The first being Itokawa on 26 June 2004, and Toutatis on 29 September 2004. I still feel strongly that Toutatis is a significant PHA to watch.
