OK....I will say this one more time for those who seem to think I bad intent starting this thread. I am NOT a "doomer".....I never said it was going to hit the earth, or that people were in bunker etc. I saw a video which was about NEOs, and it said that an asteroid passed between the earth and the moon on December 28, and that is considered very close in space terms.The video went into the fact that all asteroids are documented, but there was no info on this one. So I started this thread to share the video and info to see what people think. When I went back to youtube, the person who posted the video had taken the video down and closed their account.
SINCE THAT TIME, I found out that the video was wrong, and since the video had been taken down, I removed it from this thread. I even asked the mods to close this thread, but it's still here. I would never start one of those "OMG!!! We are all gonna die!!!" threads.....and I never said it was going to hit the earth. You can check all my posts to see that I am not like that. Bottom line is this....I was mislead, I am only human, I made a mistake. I apologized.There was an asteroid that passed in that area, but not as large as the video implied.

Lets say, they tell you it's going to hit somewhere in your state. So you move away, you can die because you did move or die because you didn't. If it's a "Huge" one, then it's not going to matter where you go.

Thank you for the info.
This asteroid wouldn't have been a threat if it had entered the atmosphere.
It would have certainly burned out.

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.
edit on 29-12-2010 by Crutchley29 because: (no reason given)


I've searched on NEO website, and the only two close approaches for 28/12 are not inside the Earth-Moon system, they are both 56 and 57 LD (lunar distances).

In other words, they were 56 and 57 times the distance between the Earth and Moon away, or about 13.5 million miles out...that's not what i call 'close'.

Am i missing something? I can't find anything relating to a meteor/asteroid for 28th Dec, that passed within 240,000 miles (Earth-Moon system)?

I wouldn't sweat it mate, you've only got to post that your toilet is blocked up or something, and people on here will twist it and accuse you of claiming we're all going to die of dysentery of some weird poo related disease.

Don't worry about it, i get that you were only letting us know.

Cheers.

It was only a couple of meters wide apparently so wasn't really a concern, someone a page back posted the info on it. If you click the name i replied to in my last post it should take you to their post.

I saw something that could have been the asteroid..I even snapped a few pictures of it.I can't find the cord to my cell to upload it I'm going to buy one later on then I'll post it.

It was about 5 am I thought it was a ufo or possibly Niburu.I was going to make a thread about it but couldn't find the cord to upload it.But if it was an asteroid then that thing was huge.Bigger then the north star,almost twice it's size.It went across the sky in about 2 hours maybe less.It was so close it looked like it was just outside the atmosphere.,that's why I thought it was a ufo because of how close it was.

Could this asteroid come back to haunt us?

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.



Thanks for posting this Teabinge.

Yeah, close...very close, but also very small. No danger to Earth.

I just noticed someone said it was only a few meters wide.

Well I guess I took pics of something else.I'll upload them later when i get the cord.

That's for sure....I would rather be at ground zero than die a slow death from starvation etc...

Here's a website that calculates the amount of damage an asteroid strike could cause. Very thorough in that you can type in all of the parameters, your distance away from the strike, whether it hits land or ocean, and other effects.

impact earth

There's also a similar site on nuclear bombs.

If people are going to 'skim-read', then they should know how. It was pretty clear that you were asking why the msn weren't picking it up - a valid question - rather than suggesting it was top-secret.

I guess indigestion effects people in different ways

Who cares, if it posed zero threat what difference is it between that one and one that fly's by us beyond the moon?
You want NASA to inform the public of every single NONE threatening asteroid that exist? That would get real old and annoying.
