This is a 3d representation of all the local Asteriods mapped from 1980 to 2010. I thought this was something for the ATS community to enjoy.








The link to the video, enjoy.

Mods not sure if its been started already if so lock it and close it please.

Hello again friend, here are 2 sites where I get the date and distance of asteroids close to hitting the Earth, sometimes it freaks me out, how close we are to getting hit sometimes.

The picture just puts it all into place.

Peace, NRE.

It is pretty amazing that we are not hit by more of these asteriods when considering how many there are out there just flying through space. Must be faith
. Thanks for your input and the sites NoRegretsEver.


Wow that first link you provided I have never seen before very informative I like it thanks again its been added to my favorites.

You think thats crazy check the space weather site and go to asteroids, look at the ones marked in red.

Asteroids to look out for are.

2009 SH2 - Sept 30th-

2011 UV11- Oct 30th-

2008 KT- Nov 23-

Ive never seen one that was only 5 lunar distance.

Peace, NRE.

man that looks like the freeway during rush hour lol.
even I am amazed .
but to inject a little reality into this photo.
99.99 % are in ordit there are two asteroid belts ,one between mars and Jupiter exonerated and another between Jupiter and Saturn. there is also the aorta belt (belt made of mostly comets about 1/4 light year on the out edge of our system.
so 99.99% can never be a threat to any planet.
But if it makes you feal any better if you go back in time say 500 to 800 million years there were ten times as many and the planets were hit alot more offton .
Now on to the even BETTER news (you will love this)
99.99% that will never hit us leaving .01% THAT WILL.
out of that .001% that are ELLE . So its not a question of If earth will be hit again its a question of WHEN earth will be hit again.
right now unknown ( black rock) could be seconds away say one the size of a small hill) hitting us . we will here a roaring sound go out side to look up see a trail of fire accross the sky watch as it diapers over the trees.
and 3 seconds later you will NEVER worry about bills again.

My dear friend

Wow, just WOW


Such a build up over 30 years, another 30 years and there could very well be 10 times this amount.

It was amazing to see how close they were getting to the Earth, doesnt bare thinking about.....Wow!!

Many thanks for sharing this, S&F for sure

Part of it is there are three big vacuum cleaners in our solar system,
Jupiter, Saturn and the Sun.

Another part of it is they are somewhat in a orbit around the sun.

Another part of it is things are spread a lot more than most ppl think.

All of our outbound spacecraft went thru the asteroid belt without
hitting one and the odds of it are now presumed to be 1 in a billion.

A large portion of our spacecraft sent thru the asteroid belt didn't
even see an asteroid while passing thru it.

If you were standing on an asteroid odds are you could not see
another asteroid in most case unless in a family cluster of them.

2029 Apophis will fly lower than the Comm satellites in geosynch orbit.

You will be able to see it with the naked eye, won't even need
a pair of binocs.

Deflection scenarios for 2036 are in the works now.

If I remember correctly, astronomers that watch for NEO's can only monitor 30% of space.
if that is correct, it leaves quite allot of room for something to sneak up on us.
maybe that is why Jupiter is in place?
I have a cousin whom is a professor at a well known university, a while back I presented him with a few questions about concerns of natural threats to the earth.
After he debunked many of my worries, the two he explained as a legitimate concerns were asteroids or comets and Yellowstone.
I was particularly floored by this, since I had not mentioned anything about these as threats..

I find that comment amazing, because we know there so many yet they are spaced so far apart. And thank God for the asteriod cleaners, it almost seems as if they are there on purpose to protect the Earth. Thanks for you intelligent input within this thread friend.

I agree and how come only 30% when we have viewers from all over the world scanning different directions. It should be hard for a sneak in unless IT WAS MOVING EXTREMELY FAST for some strange reason.
Mabey we need observation points on the Moon that is if we are allowed lol. I appreciate your input and thanks for the intelligent comments everyone thus far

HA! That looks a LOT like the debris map of the spacejunk orbiting our planet.


As above, so below!

It looks "crowded" because the representations are not to scale. They are using a whole pixel to represent an asteroid. If things were really to scale, a large asteroid (one 10 km in diameter) would actually be about a nanometer across (or 1/100,000th the width of a human hair).

On average, there are million of kilometers between asteroids. Space is big.

I see that video and can't but help think:

Thank god for Jupiter. I can't imagine how many times that monster has saved out collective butts. Not to mention our moon. .
