He said 6450 meters above the earth so i dont think he was being funny, unless iv read your post wrong.

On September 29, 2004, at 13:37 Toutatis will be 962,951 miles from earth.
I'm sure that we will be fine!

6500 meters "above" the earth is way inside the atmosphere of earth. the heat alone would have set off sensors around the world ...

the troposhere alone is 14 KM high

Scroll down, it will be 4.0 LD (lunar distance) from earth:

And AussieBloke was a few months off
, check out this baby:

Ok here's some more info on Toutatis, feel free to try and follow the path yourself, since you'll be able to start seeing it this week:

Oh, and:

In 2004 Toutatis is about to make its closest predicted pass yet, scooting a very safe 1.5 million kilometers four Earth-Moon distances south of Earth on September 29th. Indeed, after taking planetary perturbations into account, astronomers have determined that this years flyby distance is Toutatiss closest approach at least as far back as 1353 and the closest until at least 2562.

I don't know about everyone else, but I'm going to get some candlesticks and compasses and try to figure out how everyone is missing the fact that the earth is flat...

Guys... the Rense report said KILOmeters... not meters.

And yes, I'm calling the Touatis scare a bogus one. The problem with these "doomsday" screeches is the level of garbage and disinformation. If folks play Chicken Little over EVERY asteroid/comet/meteorite we spot, it's going to make it harder to get out information about real threats.

People seem to forget about all the other stuff floating around out there.

Close Approaches.
have a look at the recent misses. then, scroll down to see the stuff yet to come...

I don't think it will take that long until they they start telling next one.(propably 1999 AQ10)
Sometimes I sure as hell think natural selection works too slowly/doesn't work at all because of all these people.

This one isn't even close.
2002 NY40 was much closer. (real close in solar system scale)
And neither that one was close in "worldly" scale.

There might be one video somewhere in net about that one asteroid which visited in atmosphere above US and Canada. I've seen video from that when it fly through (upper) atmosphere nearly horizontally in some TV documents.

Doomsday prophecies are a dime a dozen. Jesus was a failed eschatological preacher as are these that prophecize an asteroid hitting us.

If you know where it may land if it were to hit then here is a good impact calculator.

Maybe the Asteroid will hit us, hopefully killing Bin Laden in the process. If the Earth is going to be destroyed, I'd rather it be a quick act of God rather than Bush and Cheney doing it slowly over the next four years.

You can all come out of the hole now.

Summary - (Sep 29, 2004) As predicted, Asteroid Toutatis made its closest approach to the Earth today, passing a mere 1.5 million km (930,000 miles) away from our planet - 4 times the distance from the Earth to the Moon. The 4.6 km (2.9 mile) long asteroid hasn't made an approach this close since 1353. Since it was first discovered in 1989, Toutatis has been closely studied by astronomers because it has an orbit that brings it close to the Earth every 4 years. Unfortunately, it's still too dim to see with the unaided eye, but skilled amateur astronomers with telescopes watching the southern skies have spotted it. Toutatis won't get this close again until 2562.

Today's September 30 and the world did not end yesterday. Specifically, the asteroid Toutatis didn't impact the Earth yesterday either.

Irrational fear is pointless. Those of you that 100% believed this was going to occur got yourselves all worked up over nothing. Of course, you're probably saying to yourselves, "What about the earthquakes, that's proof that something happened, isn't it?". Or, "We were miraculously saved by Nancy Leider and her Zeta friends on Planet X".

NASA hasn't been wrong yet about projected asteroid paths missing the Earth. All the predictions have.

What a crap! Im sure there is some people who have nothing better to do than write this BST.

I'm sure this thread gives a lot of ATS points to the author - Well thinking, well done!

Portuguese Proverbial Sentence: "The one who knows it does not tell, and those who tell do not know it." (Sorry, I dont know the correspondent idiomatic sentence in English but you got the meaning).

Isn't Toutatis due back again in 4 years time. AHA I predict it will hit then, or 4 years after that!

posted on Sep, 30 2004 @ 11:47 AM
link's the 30th....hmmm...
BTW, anyone seen Aussie Bloke around any?!?

Predictions have been with Mankind since He/She could even consider such crapola', but this day and time, Predictions of this sort are amounting to nothing but attention getting disorders....go figure.
