I love the Op Headline "Asteroid Misses Earth"
It's very presence being a redundant echo of the obvious.
We really do have to think before we write. It is important.

I believe NASA with everything it has can still only cover 13% of the sky. At least with any definition. It was not long ago that they were crying for money for that very reason. It is also why it was so funny that NASA says that nothing will hit us when they also say they can not see 87% of the sky.

They claim they have only found 60% of the ESTIMATED near earth objects so far. Better then the last time I checked but then that was before WISE went up.

An asteroid about the size of one that blasted Siberia a century ago just buzzed by Earth.

Damn, it missed.

And that's why amateur astronomers make such a big contribution to astronomy; they discover new comets and asteroids all the time. Small asteroids are hard to see, so if there was one heading straight for us, it might only get discovered a day or two before the impact.

When NASA say nothing will hit us, they mean a large asteroid that could cause extensive damage to Earth. Small asteroids (up to 5 meters across) hit us on average one to three times a year, and explode in the atmosphere with a force of a small nuclear bomb. Example: en.wikipedia.org...

Very good point indeed J_K! How much are they really missing is a little frightening.

Yeah for sure wildespace. Definitely a lot hitting our atmosphere. I agree with your comment also that we are lucky that there is a large contingent of amateur astronomers watching the sky for us. They have indeed found many newly identified comets, asteroids, etc.

Like they say in the army, "It's not the one you hear whizzing by you have to worry about".

We can only hope that with the help of more and more amateur astronomers that we'll get the facts sooner rather than later.

They only knew two days ahead of time because they don't care about things like this. There's literally barely anyone monitoring asteroids that are whizzing by or heading our way. For some odd reason they just don't seem to care. They know that Apophis will be coming very close but they don't even have any technology for taking care of asteroids on collision courses. I found that chilling the first time I heard it. They haven't even began planning anything yet to take care of asteroids or the sort. They have nothing, absolutely no technology for that and haven't even started working on it yet. It's almost like they don't care if we get hit or not or if there's going to be an asteroid doomsday.


With people taking that attitude, we could get hit by something at any moment. It could even happen right n-

Thank you for your input Myomistress!! I agree with your points very much
"I found that chilling the first time I heard it. They haven't even began planning anything yet to take care of asteroids or the sort" -- As you said!! Very troubling.

All the best to you!!

They always will disclose the facts after they have evacuated the important people into the mountains, and after the asteroid hits the earth. If the asteroid were to hit and there was evidence that the scientists sort of knew about it, well you know the surviving rich people would find some surviving attorneys and sue the rest of them. Then the surviving big nations would invade the country that got hurt, for the resources, under the guise of emergency disaster relief.

Two day notice shows that the military knew and was compelling the others not to incite panic among the population. Sometimes, in quantum reality, it isn't a problem until someone calls it a problem. How many asteroids have crossed the way and they were not hyped up?

Good point! You may be right about the 'important' people being notified first so they can be protected. Actually a good idea to keep an eye on the elite and see if/when there is any significant movement that could indicate some major event is or about to happen.

Thanks!!

Apparently there is a close one coming tomorrow.
According to NASA site NEO.
