so not a chance, and the thing is small. so let it pass and we will all say hi to it.

LD is not light years, it's lunar distance. Which means it's 0.1 times the distance from the Earth to the moon. Nowhere near light years.
So the actual distance the asteroid is, is 38,440 km away from Earth.

Things like this make me question if it was even worth me posting such things as....

This one is different and on a different date. Close but no cigar...

as well... it was .6 LD's away in its miss distance... this is .1.

Lunar distance being, the distance from Earth to the Moon... which is an average of 384,400 kilometers(238,855 miles)
If I'm not mistaken, JPL and other agencies, actually use a different distance other than 384,000... they use a specific distance that is present during a specific orientation. I could be wrong though.

That puts this one passing at 23, 855 miles away from earth?

Is that enough to alter its path? I wonder how close it comes to the sun if this is the case... I'm sure the sun will just blast this thing into dust, and it will be the last we ever see of it.

I swear, someday... people will be able to read and not just type.

The person I responded to typed what he said after you typed that post, so you should be directing your anger to him.

people give too much credit to newly discovered space pebbles.

doom? only for that little rock when it gets burned up on incoming.

LOL, I'm neither angry... nor really directing the comment towards you. I was... ahh never mind lol.

Just pointing out the obvious I guess.

sorry for the confusion, thanks for contributing to this thread.

Well since the Earth's surface is mostly covered by water than it could hit the ocean and possibly cause some sort of tsunami event.
That could put locations a decent distance away in danger as well if they are on low lying coastal zones.

Anyone care to calculate the size of a tsunami wave from a 26m meteorite impact?

Well....assuming this baby is made from solid rock, has a velocity of 10 m/s and impacts at an angle of 45deg.

Distance from Impact: 100.00 km ( = 62.10 miles )
Projectile diameter: 26.00 meters ( = 85.30 feet )
Projectile Density: 3000 kg/m3
Impact Velocity: 10.00 km per second ( = 6.21 miles per second )
Impact Angle: 45 degrees
Target Density: 1000 kg/m3
Target Type: Liquid water of depth 2.0 km ( = 1.2 miles ), over crystalline rock.

Energy:
Energy before atmospheric entry: 1.38 x 1015 Joules = 329.77 KiloTons TNT
The average interval between impacts of this size somewhere on Earth is 141.7 years
Major Global Changes:

The Earth is not strongly disturbed by the impact and loses negligible mass.
The impact does not make a noticeable change in the tilt of Earth's axis (< 5 hundreths of a degree).
The impact does not shift the Earth's orbit noticeably.

Atmospheric Entry:
The projectile begins to breakup at an altitude of 45500 meters = 149000 ft
The projectile bursts into a cloud of fragments at an altitude of 16100 meters = 52700 ft
The residual velocity of the projectile fragments after the burst is 5.22 km/s = 3.24 miles/s
The energy of the airburst is 1.00 x 1015 Joules = 0.24 x 100 MegaTons.
No crater is formed, although large fragments may strike the surface.

Air Blast:
The air blast will arrive approximately 5.12 minutes after impact.
Peak Overpressure: 209 Pa = 0.00209 bars = 0.0297 psi
Max wind velocity: 0.493 m/s = 1.1 mph
Sound Intensity: 46 dB (Easily Heard)

Tsunami Wave:
The impact-generated tsunami wave arrives approximately 39.1 minutes after impact.

Tsunami wave amplitude is less than 23.7 cm ( = 9.3 inches)

Peace

Pieces of rock like this have hit the Earth many times in the last century.

Here is a list beginning with the famous Tunguska event. Not all of the events might be from space.

It happens all the time, so even thought it seems very close it is entirely normal.

Read this my friend ,there will be no end of the world come then..
Wanna bet???... are you game

. Do not panic if you feel the end of the world may be upon us or that it will hit the earth, and destroy us, if you think it may, then go get your credit card go down the cashpoint draw your life savings out and go get a couple of brasses for the next few days. If you have a missus take her out wine, dine, and show her one last good time.. Or get your life savings out and bet me the lot that we will not make it through into 2013 ill match it.. If you lose then do not worry as it's not the end of the world
.

P.S On a serious note try not to panic as it will not hit earth and destroy us .. All the best

However, here is some info i found to add to the conversation if it hits .

This is a 26 M asteroid that is travelling at 13 km/s. If it is an iron meteorite (less common than a stony meteorite), but for the sake of looking at the worst case scenario lets calculate that it is. We can then get a look at what this collision would resemble. The average interval between impacts of this size somewhere on Earth is 351.4 years Energy before atmospheric entry: 6.22 x 10^15 Joules = 1.49 MegaTons TNT The projectile begins to breakup at an altitude of 9540 meters = 31300 ft The projectile reaches the ground in a broken condition. The mass of projectile strikes the surface at velocity 5.46 km/s = 3.39 miles/s The impact energy is 1.1 x 10^15 Joules = 0.26 MegaTons. The broken projectile fragments strike the ground in an ellipse of dimension 0.223 km by 0.16 km Crater shape is normal in spite of atmospheric crushing; fragments are not significantly dispersed. Transient Crater Diameter: 520 meters ( = 1700 feet ) Transient Crater Depth: 184 meters ( = 603 feet ) Final Crater Diameter: 650 meters ( = 2130 feet ) Final Crater Depth: 138 meters ( = 454 feet ) The crater formed is a simple crater. The floor of the crater is underlain by a lens of broken rock debris (breccia) with a maximum thickness of 64.1 meters ( = 210 feet ). At this impact velocity ( < 12 km/s), little shock melting of the target occurs. Most ejecta is blocked by Earth's atmosphere. Seismic Effects: Richter Scale Magnitude: 4.2

2012 KP 24: Asteroid Will Not Hit Earth A small asteroid called 2012 KP 24 will buzz our planet on May 28, 2012. The asteroid will come very close to Earth, and we mean very close: closer than some of our geosynchronous satellites at roughly 18,000 miles. Asteroid 2012 KP 24 to Pass Earth on May 28 Asteroid 2012 KP 24 to Buzz earth on May 28 However, 2012 KP 24 will not hit Earth, so hold onto those doomsday scenarios. The asteroid will be at its closest at approximately 11am ET/8am PT on May 28. Can You See the Asteroid as It Passes Earth? Asteroid 2012 KP 24 will not be visible from the ground with the naked eye. It is only 25 meters across: Usain Bolt could run across it in roughly 2 1/2 seconds.

We will be ok .. "The post before this, would most likely be the worst case scenario" Peace my friend

Thanks! That was awesome of you.

Especially for the link, now I can do it myself without having to bother you for it.
I really appreciate your reply, and I'll return the favor someday hopefully.

RV is baloney. They made all sorts of other predictions as well such as the water hose on Mars and the space ship following Hale Bopp.

What a load of baloney remote viewing is.

Really surprised no one has made a thread for the one coming even closer, I don't really know how, and am at work so it would prob not be so good but someone take a look at 2012 KT42 that is going to be the six closest near earth asteroid passing some 0.05 LD or 14,000 km's above earth surface in the geosynchronous satellites range passing over today May 29th

Info gotten from spaceweather.com

Does anyone know what sort of calamity 1 of these things would do if it per say took out a satellite, could we have a chain reaction pile up so to speak. With debris taking out multiple satelittes or do they have contingency plans exactely for these type of circumstances????
