Newly Discovered Object To Approach Earth Feb 4th

The newly discovered object, officially designated 2011 CQ1, will make a close Earth approach today February 04, 2011 around 19:40UT at ~0.03(LD)/0.00008(AU) or 11855 km.



2011 CQ1 has been discovered by R. A. Kowalski few hours ago in the course of the "Catalina Sky Survey" with a 0.68-m Schmidt + CCD. The object was moving at roughly 6 "/min and it was of magnitude ~19. According to its absolute magnitude H=32 this is a very small object, in the order of 2-3 meters.


Just few hours after his discovery, we have been able to follow-up this object using remotely a 0.35-m f/3.8 refl

Here is a close one, what do you think it is folks? Meteorites, comets, alien spaceship squadron, Jesus, Mohammed, Nibiru, Blue Star Kachina, is this the comet those guys in Nikes should have caught? --- Is the end already here? Either go to a bunker and hide or take your cams outside and film the sky. I wish I could see it now, can anyone confirm or see in now? If it’s dark look outside.

Its all of the above coming in for one final Battle Royale. Its on Pay-Per-View, check your local listings for showtimes. HD costs another $5.00, but it will be worth it.

Honestly, probably nothing. Seeing as how its already 4/5 in other parts of the world, I think we get out of this one okay.

Being only 2-3 meters across, I doubt we'll see it from earth unless it enters the atmosphere. Even then, I doubt it's anything important. There's probably billions of pieces of random debris in space that we haven't detected yet like this one.

Another version of the story, it already passed us by. It was the size of a small car and actually passed in the zone geosynchronous sattelites sit in. It didn't hit anything though.

Wow. They have technology to spot a 9 foot object whirling in space but they still can't find bin Laden! Amazing!

Be fair, the thing is only 3 meters!
The fact that they spotted it at all with any lead time is impressive.
