No worries. Thanks for bringing it to our attention - there is something new out there.

I heard it was made entirely of Bacon. Damn it I wish it would have hit!

There was nothing to fear from the asteroid. Nothing at all. It was out of range. Scientists knew that the moment they spotted it.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe NASA has said they have a very good handle on near-Earth objects - and yet SURPRISE! Only 2 days notice... if it hit would they even bother giving us advanced notice?


Great call, Santa Gunny.. and bump.
For all the scopes, deep space pings, and other supposedly hot covert gear
we've got or wish we had, nobody on the ground's got a clue. And you think
NASA is going to cause a stampede to the supermarket for propcorn?
Doubt it seriously as you. Too much black noise up there, and cue balls.
My money's on the fact we're all lucky... for the minute. And if the Big One hits,
it'll be Fail-Safe time.. if you can remember the old black and white 'real deal',
the hopscotch in Queens was never disturbed. They're just getting us ready all
the time because it's fun for them to pour kerosene on the ant farm and not light it.
Recall the before and after pictures of Y2K: cry wolf, get everybody off the
adrenaline dump and beat up, then slowly send in a bigger pack of coyotes over
the next couple of years. Same old MO, unfortunately it works too well.

Only 2 days ago??? That tells me that almost anything could be headed our (Earth) and we may have 2 days or less to be prepared. Is this surprising to you as much as it is to me?

The article you linked to was published in 2009 and the asteroid was designated as a 2009 discovery. However you were right about the recent miss by a rock we found only a short time ago, you just linked to the wrong article.

SOURCE

Asteroid 2012 XE54 was only recently discovered, and will safely pass between the Earth and the Moon’s orbit at a distance of about 226,000 km (141,000 miles) or about .6 lunar distances.

Whoa! Earth gets close shave by newfound asteroid

"A newfound asteroid gave Earth a close shave early today, zipping between our planet and the moon just two days after astronomers first spotted it. "

A newly-discovered space rock named 2012 XE54 will make its closest approach to the Earth on December 11th, 2012. It will come about 143,000 miles away from Earth (0.6 Lunar Distance) and is about 120-feet-wide.

Well the one that hit Siberia wasn't big enough to destroy Earth, so really not that big of a deal, unless you're in the blast area of course.

Right, wouldn't want or know what to do with 2 days or less notice....just strange

Great thread OP...about 99 per cent of Human Beings and such would not have known about this near miss event.
That is what is so brilliant about ATS you get to know little reported facts...of course not the biggest facts..but enough to educate at least me.

Yes this is an alarming wake up call.

2 days?
We may as well kiss our family members ahead of time because there is no way we will get this lucky again. A near miss is almost always followed by a fatal incident.

Science and NASA are pretty knowledgeable and helpful toward mankind growing and understanding, but this is terribly eye opening. They don't know if a asteroid is going to bash into us until 2 days ahead of time?
Wow
