Hi.



So they say this probably won't hit us but at the end he says you may want to get your affairs in order.

Is that supposed to be a joke?

We have nothing to worry about with this one.... its the bullet you don't hear that kills you

In this case I think that 'saying' doesn't apply here...TPTB would need to inform us, otherwise the amateurs out there with their scopes would bring attention to it, specifically the misinformation, and all hell would break loose.


Where as if the TPTB do inform us, and of course there will be 'nothing to worry about' when they do, there will be no chaos, no riots, nada - just a bright flash and.........................

So when is this thing supposed to pass us or hit us or whatever?

i guess i could google, just being lazy.

Oh goody, just when it was getting quiet on the asteroid front!


2012DA? Death Approacheth!

I couldn't resist. Still, he did say under the satellites so it might not even get as close as the atmosphere.

most ATS 2012 DA14 have gone to hoax or trash bin --

it passes so close to earth - closer than even our satellites - on/about Feb 15, 2013,

but NASA implies its more likely due to impact in 2020 where it will get even closer.

its about 150ft wide which is considered 'midsize' and whats esp dangerous is that it gets 2 chances at hitting Earth per orbit (the next being 2013 and 2020 both closer to us tnan even our own satellites)

150 is smallish The ones that caused big problems were miles wide.

This could be the V spacecraft invasion the keep warning about on the news as a possibility.

This will be an interesting one to watch in the next 11 or so months.

Havn`t had one of those since I was young,yippeee! might have to check with the Mrs though

Mid-Size Asteroid Won't Hit Earth in 2013, NASA Says

smallish sounds cute.

I reckon an even stranger possibility is that it might REALLY be an asteroid. Boy... it sure makes one think, doesn't it?

See ya,

Couldn`t this be a little bad even if it doesn`t impact Earth.

It`s Like running through major traffic, traffic with no brakes . Satellites smashing satellites raining sparks and chunks down on the Earth It would only need to hit one right and start a chain reaction?

That's true I'm surprised nobody has mentioned it.

What if this thing took out my cable!

OK, reminds me of the RV'ers predictions. North Korea fires a missile, an asteroid causes space objects to crash to earth or into ocean, and then the kill shot from the sun. Why is it I think they're setting up these pins and its just too convenient.

Again 150 feet is small.

Oh dear, when they talking about these odd things crashing into Saturn's rings, and I thought of them, our pesky little PTB wanna be's and our secret space crafts, unsealing something. Well how about our black ops steering an asteroid this way.

It is a new find, really! Even on this score I believe its them.

Why yes this would be bad, or apocolyptic. Choose your adjective. I agree with the poster saying that if the PTB warn you about it, rather than stargazers & astronomers publicizing it, there will be a "relative" calm before a red streak, then a bright flash.

We all know we're shifting...

I checked out the JPL website myself and on 16 Feb 2013 it showed an earth distance of 8.0E-4. I don't know the conversion but the internet is a wonderful thing and I found this conversion calculator.

www.thecalculatorsite.com...

74,364 miles. That seems pretty close but I don't think its below satellites.Is it?

Most definitely strikes me as "carefully orchestrated".
Whatever, cause truly we know in our hearts what we can, & will do. Time to plant & get back to our roots

I actually saw that broadcast. When he said that about thinking about getting your affairs in order, I said out loud (to the cats LOL) Did you hear what he just said? I thought it a strange thing to say, even if he was just joking..

Some day I hope someone places a solorpowered HD camera on a asteroid to film its journey.

Exactly. I've noticed the local news anchors here in Phoenix joke about ufo sightings and strange stuff all the time. Sometimes they act like they don't believe the explanation they're reading from the teleprompter.

Maybe it's just me that notices it but I doubt it.

Well the Tunguska event in 1908 was thought to have been produced by a asteroid 120 feet wide. This thing could deffinitely do some serious damage over a highly populated or metropolitan area. Maybe it's time to test out some defensive technology. Seems like a good place to start.

"A century later some still debate the cause and come up with different scenarios that could have caused the explosion," said Yeomans. "But the generally agreed upon theory is that on the morning of June 30, 1908, a large space rock, about 120 feet across, entered the atmosphere of Siberia and then detonated in the sky."

It is estimated the asteroid entered Earth's atmosphere traveling at a speed of about 33,500 miles per hour. During its quick plunge, the 220-million-pound space rock heated the air surrounding it to 44,500 degrees Fahrenheit. At 7:17 a.m. (local Siberia time), at a height of about 28,000 feet, the combination of pressure and heat caused the asteroid to fragment and annihilate itself, producing a fireball and releasing energy equivalent to about 185 Hiroshima bombs.

Also scientists believe a chunck of that thing one meter in size is responsible for creating a lake as well.

"That is why there is no impact crater," said Yeomans. "The great majority of the asteroid is consumed in the explosion."

The Guinness Book of World Records (1966 edition) states that due to the rotation of the Earth, if the collision had occurred 4 hours 47 minutes later, it would have completely destroyed the city of St. Petersburg.

In June 2007, scientists from the University of Bologna identified a lake in the Tunguska region as a possible impact crater from the event. They do not dispute that the Tunguska body exploded in midair but believe that a one-meter fragment survived the explosion and struck the ground. Lake Cheko is a small, bowl-shaped lake approximately 8 kilometres north-northwest of the hypocenter.[39] The hypothesis has been disputed by other impact crater specialists.[40] A 1961 investigation had dismissed a modern origin of Lake Cheko, saying that the presence of metres-thick silt deposits at the lake's bed suggests an age of at least 5,000 years;[24] but more recent research suggests that only a meter or so of the sediment layer on the lake bed is "normal lacustrine sedimentation," a depth indicating a much younger lake of about 100 years.[41] Acoustic-echo soundings of the lake floor provide support for the hypothesis that the lake was formed by the Tunguska event. The soundings revealed a conical shape for the lake bed, which is consistent with an impact crater.[42] Magnetic readings indicate a possible meter-sized chunk of rock below the lake's deepest point that may be a fragment of the colliding body.[42] Finally, the lake's long axis points to the hypocenter of the Tunguska explosion, about 7.0 kilometres (4.3 mi) away.[42] Work is still being done at Lake Cheko to determine its origins.
