This is probably nothing but I remember reading a few years ago the events of 2012 would actually start in November of the preceding year. Sure this is nothing but I am trying to get our affairs in order just in case.

This asteroid is described as roughly spherical. There's something unusual about the Physics. For an object this size to spherical it would have to have a strong enough gravity to pull it into that shape.

Assuming that it is made of denser materials yet smaller in size it might be something like this

So wonder if 2005 YU55 has a high mass/gravity to give it that shape

That is a picture of Ida, which is 15.7 km across. I recommend you avoid sites that post a pic of one asteroid on a story about another without correctly identifying the picture.

I hate deceptive thread titles. This obviously ain't the biggest asteroid EVER to come this close to Earth. Perhaps it is the biggest ever admittedly observed passing this close, but what about all those we didn't observe? And what about the ones that left craters hundreds of kilometers across in prehistoric times?

And what about the one that skipped across the Pacific Ocean and kept on going on 2005 March 12? I'm pretty sure that one was at least as big as Elenin, and it came within ZERO meters of Earth.

P.S.: I remember seeing aerial photos in a magazine, about 20 or 30 years ago, where a big meteor had left a string of oval gouges in a South American jungle. This had to have been a recent even, as the trees had not yet grown back; most of the area was still bare rock. I think the largest gouge was roughly 200 meters wide and a kilometer long (give or take a factor of 5 due to my poor memory). I am not having any luck finding those pix online.

Bear in mind, we have only recently begun actually looking for potentially hazardous asteroids. We have found 1223 more than 100 meters across which cross Earth's orbit. 50 of those have been found in 2011, so far. That's twice as many as were found in the whole decade of the 1980s. So we didn't see any bigger and closer than Elenin because we had our eyes wide shut.

I am suffering a case of confusion. When Asteroid 2005 YA55 hit the headlines, I thought they were talking about C/2010 X1, Elenin. So where I said, "Elenin", in my earlier post, above, simply substitute "2005 YA55". I think that is all the correction that is needed.

The rumors about Elenin's revised trajectory do bear a close resemblance to the truth about the asteroid. I wonder if that same confusion may have resulted in some of the Elenin rumors, in the first place.

How about getting everyone's attention away from Elenin and it's revised trajectory?!
Would be a convenient distraction from the real deal here.

Thank you for more info ..

neo.jpl.nasa.gov...

The closest approach to Earth 0.00217 AU on 2011 November 8 at 23:28
Moon will be respectively 0.00160 AU November 9 at 07:13 UT.
So Moon is danger too, lol ..


"However, this will be the closest approach to date by an object this large that we know about in advance and an event of this type will not happen again until 2028 when asteroid (153814) 2001 WN5 will pass to within 0.6 lunar distances. "

neo.jpl.nasa.gov...

2005 YU55, is a potentially hazardous object that is 400 meters in diameter ..

Peace ..

It also helps to post this all important trajectory path as well, as you can see the asteroid is way off of our orbital plane.

I got it from your link, it was directly below the image you posted, if you use the JAVA 3D the Jet Propulsion Lab offers, it will give you the same thing.


BTW, the image is stamped JPL, for all to see.
