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.


2004 MRI:
2004 MR1 2004-Jun-21 20:36 00:04 1.5/0.0038 1.47/0.00377 7.58

ITOKAWA

Awesome. Do you think you might be able to figure out some of those numbers? I figured out the distance was about 525,000km away , the moon is 350,00km away. What's the deal with its rotation and size?

I hope this is a joke.

That is MUCH closer then Toutatis in September. People were worried about Toutatis coming so close. Am I just over reacting or is this really bad? It all depends on the size right? So how big is this thing? Whats the bare minimum distance that something can come to us without it being pulled in by our gravity?

This is absolutely hillarious. A new neo on Nasa's site that corresponds somewhat with the first impact of the Aussie Bloke Thread. Aussie Bloke claimed 18-20, and this one is coming the 21st. What a great coincedence. But NASA says that it will still be quite a ways away still. So, it goes back to would they tell us?

Well it's not as big as Toutatis.

H (Vm) Absolute V-magnitude (in general, smaller H implies larger asteroid diameter).

Toutatis H (vm) = 11.00

MR1 H (vm) = 25.21

So in KM or miles how big are these suckers?

1 AU is the distance from the earth to the moon right? Or is it the earth to the sun?

"Potentially Hazardous Asteroids (PHAs) are currently defined based on parameters that measure the asteroid's potential to make threatening close approaches to the Earth. Specifically, all asteroids with an Earth Minimum Orbit Intersection Distance (MOID) of 0.05 AU or less and an absolute magnitude (H) of 22.0 or less are considered PHAs. In other words, asteroids that can't get any closer to the Earth (i.e. MOID) than 0.05 AU (roughly 7,480,000 km or 4,650,000 mi) or are smaller than about 150 m (500 ft) in diameter (i.e. H = 22.0 with assumed albedo of 13%) are not considered PHAs. "

this is still outside the distance of the moon's orbit, isn't it? We've had objects come closer than a lunar orbit before, in the last few months, haven't we?

All in all... i don't think it's close enough to scare us

Didn't "Aussie Bloke" predict the 1st one to be a near miss?

No, he said the first big impact was to be between the 18th and 20th june. Guess he's gone the way of Nancy and the y2k folks.

No, the 1st and 2nd were supposed to hit, the 3rd they were unsure of.

the 21st is close enough, maybe they felt sorry for all the blokers
Decided to give them one more day of anticipation, but yes i too think it will be as the dodo...

Holy Sh!t that thing is going to be a very near miss.

I just used the NASA Orbit applet to check its orbit and its very very close

*phew*

You know,
A part of me thinks that the Aussie Bloke scenario was just put forwarded to see how we would react to something like that...

Or as a 'boy who cried wolf' distraction from something that's coming later on...

What is the link for that Orbit applet? Thanks in advance.

It will be 563,983.96 km.

These are the distances of the Moon.

Perigee 363,300 km
Mean 384,400 km
Apogee 405,500 km

i dont know about the numbers but i do know someones payin attention that at least makes me feel a little bit more comfy about the whole thing i guess keep up the good work you get

Any chance of this thing hitting our moon, then...?

If our gravity affects the moon will it not affect this new astroid?

D1k is accurate in his findings, this asteroid is not listed on NEOSYS as a PHA. It has a MOID of 0.0010 and an H of 25.6 which equates to being about 20-50m or 0.003 miles.

I think what many people are forgetting is that just a few months back, February an asteroid passed by Earth at a distance of 25,600 and NASA didn't see it until the day after. 2004 MR1 has been spotted and since the 19th it has had 69 observation points and that's just from NASA alone and shouldn't be anything but something to look at.
