No, I'm suggesting that this statement



they may even deliberately leave a few off the chart


Is completely false.



So Nasa have no observatories of their own?

www.nasa.gov...

Are you suggesting that it is impossible for NASA to keep a lid on an NEO that they have found with their own observatories?

Stop putting words in my mouth, of course NASA has NEO observatories.

There are plenty of other, non NASA NEO observatories:

Sliding Spring Survey

JSGA

Catalina Sky Survey

The Lowell Observatory

Spacewatch Project

Lincoln Labratory

Edit to add a couple more...

Kleť Observatory

Plaskett Supernova Spectroscopy Survey Program

The EUNEASO Project

DLR-Archenhold Near Earth Objects Precovery Survey

So do the Japanese:

www.spaceguard.or.jp...

Italians:

newton.dm.unipi.it...
www.mporzio.astro.it...

UK:

www.spacecentre.co.uk...

And plenty others.





I asked you a series of questions, that is all.

Including one that you avoided answering.

It will be pretty much be impossible.

NASA may have the deepest viewing observatories and potentially spot objects before others but it will eventually be close enough for others to spot.

Eventually, yes.

Consider the following:

It is possible that right now NASA is aware of an NEO that will strike the earth in one month and have known about it for 6 months. This NEO might only become observable by others a few days before it strikes.

The cosmos is large and many observatories on earth are often hampered by atmospheric conditions.

Also, what makes you so confident that independent observatories would be completely transparent with their findings?

interesting post...goes to show us that there are many things out in space heading towards earth that dont get talked about....big and small...fear mongering seems to be the new catch phrase on ATS...pops up in alot of threads..it would seem that to some any info is fearmongering


i dont feel any fear in reading the OP info, i didnt get scared and im pretty sure most others didnt either.....butt of course thats just MY opinion. people can react how ever they want to.

that said....Never A Straight Answer really nailed down that satilte break up, didnt they.....ooopps, that may be construed as fearmongering...sorry

What makes you think they're not?

I don't know either way.

If an observatory found a large space body that was going to impact the earth and create havoc I am sure that the observatory would have protocols that they have to follow. I would assume that none of them involve speaking to the media first. Catch my drift?

most everyone seemed distracted with wimpy Elenin, and even now YU55. i guess cuz size matters so much.

heck even NASA FAQ had hundreds of Q&A on Elenin but never seen Q's about SE58,

and that probably was intentional. sheesh, comet, asteroid, what'll it be??
