I have no idea, but it is weird, eh? I'm not like freaked about it, but after looking at my own spreadsheets, I have been going to that site for
almost seven years. Either they finally needed to upgrade it in some way, or....?
Anyway, after looking just now again, they even took off more:
" Near Earth Asteroids
Potentially Hazardous Asteroids (PHAs) are space rocks larger than approximately 100m that can come closer to Earth than 0.05 AU. None of the known
PHAs is on a collision course with our planet, although astronomers are finding new ones all the time.
On January 19, 2011 there were 1183 potentially hazardous asteroids.
Recent & Upcoming Earth-asteroid encounters: Asteroid Date(UT) Miss Distance Mag. Size
Notes: LD means "Lunar Distance." 1 LD = 384,401 km, the distance between Earth and the Moon. 1 LD also equals 0.00256 AU. MAG is the visual
magnitude of the asteroid on the date of closest approach. "
And that is all that is there...makes me go hmmmm.
