You could be onto something there LOL! The person who posted the video said it was between the earth and sun....but now I'm not so sure I believe it. The video was there at 8am and was gone when I went back....the poster had shut down his youtube page.I wish I could change the title of my thread!

That's what it said BUT I don't think the information was correct....a couple of people did some digging, and found there was one that was recent, but the dates and info was wrong,,,,,that's probably why he took the viseo down.

We weren't told because no one cares. Everyone would feel stressed out and panicked. I would like
to know what and where it would have struck, people should be notified and evacuated like they do for hurricanes.
This looks like how they treated people for Hurricane Katrina. All public school buses should be used to help evacuate the people. Yahoo should post these posible warnings. Although my husband has said you really can't prepare much for an apocolypse.....
Tsunami warnings should also have been issued if they knew where it would hit in the ocean.

How about a source and some information?
Like the size and date? People should really put more into the threads they post.

Thanks for clearing that up. I really couldn't be sure what it was. It does seem to have originated from that part of the sky though now that you mention it. That is how that works right? Since they're the geminids they would come from the general vicinity of the gemini constellation? Also, the only odd thing about it was the flash. I guess I've seen bollides break apart before, but usually not the flash. Thanks again tho!

Why tell us, all you can hope for is that it's not "to" big and hits on the opposite side of the planet, even then all you are doing is trading in a quick painless death for a long drawn out starvation death.

Everyone who needed to be aware of it's proximity was advised. Why issue a general alarm when it is certain there is no threat? Can we imagine all the old ladies calling the local cops to let them know "and is there anything they should do?" Sigh.

This Ideology has alwaysed seemed a little stupid to me..

So the whole human race is wiped out and only the Trizillionairs and a few smart ppl are saved...

So who's gunna cook for em'? Who's gunna build their new homes? Who's gunna teach their children? Who's gunna tend their gardens, their pools, their factories, their manual labour?

What are they going to do with their money once there's nobody left to pay.. no people to buy their goods, News Papers, with no general population, the wealthy are pretty much a useless bunch and nof fit to survive an aftermath....

It's always been the ppl who use their hands and work hard that will survive in the end...

Actually, we were told many times it was going to happen and that there was nothing to worry about. I've personally read about a half dozen articles on the topic in the past 6 months in the AP, etc.

Why threads like this one are on the front page everyday now? ATS became a joke site for noobs.

NASA track all near earth objects at NEO

The information is there, including the mass, density, dimensions, you just need to make yourself aware.

The calculations are always spot on, and if there were cause for concern we would be notified.

Only the paranoid would believe that we were being mislead over this sort of information, the paranoid...or the ignorant.

Don't call people ignorant when you are too. We only spend 1 million a year on locating NEO's (Near Earth Objects) and we usually only catch them AFTER they have passed earth.

So it is not surprising that they missed this one as well. When we are hit by an asteroid the only warning you will get is a rumbling and fire on the horizon.

Their calculations are only spot on when they happen to see it ahead of time. With that small of a budget they miss most of them. You might want to do some actual research next time before you call people ignorant.

Thank you! There is NOTHING to be found about it now...the video I saw said it didn't pose an imminent threat but just came close to us (about half the distance to the moon, which in cosmic terms is close) I just thought it was worth knowing about.

edit on 29-12-2010 by StealthyKat because: (no reason given)


i think that's incredibly close and although it wasn't being kept secret it is odd that this wasn't a news story.

The least little harmless thing flies by, or happens to the moon and it's all over the news, so why not this?

The OP has unfairly received a lot of stick for on this thread, which again, is a little odd, considering the crap often that gets threaded here. The question isn't why is it a top secret, but why isn't it a news story.

From Near Earth Object program (neo.jpl.nasa.gov...)

PASADENA, Calif. -- A small asteroid will fly past Earth early Tuesday within the Earth-moon system. The asteroid, 2010 TD54, will have its closest approach to Earth's surface at an altitude of about 45,000 kilometers (27,960 miles) at 6:50 EDT a.m. (3:50 a.m. PDT). At that time, the asteroid will be over southeastern Asia in the vicinity of Singapore. During its flyby, Asteroid 2010 TD54 has zero probability of impacting Earth. A telescope of the NASA-sponsored Catalina Sky Survey north of Tucson, Arizona discovered 2010 TD54 on Oct. 9 at (12:55 a.m. PDT) during routine monitoring of the skies.

2010 TD54 is estimated to be about 5 to 10 meters (16 to 33 feet) wide. Due to its small size, the asteroid would require a telescope of moderate size to be viewed. A five-meter-sized near-Earth asteroid from the undiscovered population of about 30 million would be expected to pass daily within a lunar distance, and one might strike Earth's atmosphere about every 2 years on average. If an asteroid of the size of 2010 TD54 were to enter Earth's atmosphere, it would be expected to burn up high in the atmosphere and cause no damage to Earth's surface.
