I guess it missed as predicted.

Nothing happened. Right on schedule.

How is this breaking news? We've known about this for quite some time and I'm sure you must have seen the countless threads regarding this lately.


Considering your avatar, that was a pretty snotty reply for someone who is supposedly "enlightened" lol...

Ah, well... I guess its like they say...

If your call of duty Xbox Live username is pornstar69, you've never 69'ed...

And if your ATS avatar or screen name has something to do with enlightenment or esoteric wisdom, you've never been enlightened, and you are just as clueless as the rest of us when it comes to any kind of wisdom...

Just a rule of thumb, of course XD There are some members who do a good job of walking the walk, but many more who have perfected talking the talk... :l

Nothing against you, either Samuel.. none of us are saints!
Just thought I should let you know how your reply made me feel
Take it as you will. I'm one of the biggest jerks I know. But then I don't walk around here with my god avatar telling everybody what to do like I'm a somebody...

Thank god you're here to constantly remind us of the uselessness of speculation and conspiracy. your posts seem to be a tad kunty as of late. A far cry from your usual intelligent and informative givings.

Dude... Leave him alone.

Besides, who the Hell do you think you are to criticize someone else's post?

Who DOES that...??? Hello? Rude!

I meant to post this for you but lost the thread earlier. Not that I think it will change your mind, but it's still my answer nonetheless.

Isn't it pathetic that nations spend trillions of dollars on nuclear icbms, stealth aircraft, aircraft carriers, drones and other robotic systems, etc. but nothing at all for space defense be it ufo attacks or asteroids??

Are you afraid of UFO attacks? It would be good if more were spent on detecting asteroids but you do get to a point of diminishing returns (and contrary to your statement money is being spent).

It also has something to do with a "clear and present danger" as opposed to something that will, at some time in the future be something that will happen but we have no idea when.


Your return to spending money of detection and defense of space rocks will be to preserve mankind. Figures everyone follows are off. You can't put ait when you don't have a count of things that can hit us. We look one way and get hit from another. According to our math its not possible. Forgot the number but something remotely close to the Tunguska was 1/1200 I think. We were wrong. Prevention is the cure. Fight petty wars, but when that space rock comes all could be gone. You are a smart ass and surprised you have such a following.

Hey gais,

Does anyone think that this meteor was related to the one that hit russia? I mean it's just too much of a coincidence to think that two meteors would be this close to home, innit?

I rekon nasa must have known about it and just kept us in the dark as usual.

they will destroy us if we dont keep up the speculation and accusations. they are bloody evil i know it.

something smels about all of this, there is no way that meteroite that his russia, a once in 1000 year event, just happens to be at the same time that the meteroite that flew past us closer than any sattelites we have, ever happens.

what do you gais think???

what else arent they telling us?

A 150ft-long asteroid will skim past the Earth today - closer than any other near-miss on record. The huge chunk of rock - so big it is capable of wiping out London - will travel closer to the planet than many satellites.


It travelled so close.................It wasn't even visible to the naked eye. Got up at 4AM and couldn't see a thing.......Thanks!

Don't think NASA it self is evil. Its public sector. It just gets funding from government. So I'm sure there is a if you say "blank" we'll cut your funding agreement.

If you'd done some research you'd know for a fact that it will be closer than some satellites. Ugh. Please research your facts before starting a thread.


In my defence I think you are arguing semantics I said as much, and yes I have known about this “near miss” for a while but today (yesterday) is (was) the day that it passed so I thought I would post this.

I am going to put your wonderful display of arrogance down to the pitfalls of youth, there really is no need for you attitude as other members have already said it is not welcome on ATS. Nobody is particularly impressed by it and I took the liberty to look over your profiles, something that is worth doing if you are going to criticise the member and not the thread and I must say I am not very impressed I could quite easily critique any of your threads with the same arrogance if I chose to do so.

I do not deny my shortcomings, I know my strengths and I know my weaknesses this is one of my weaknesses. My knowledge of this particular topic is limited that is why my posting on this thread has been so space because I see ATS as a learning tool as well as a means to debate. This was posted in breaking news because it was happening yesterday and I thought it would be worthy of discussion and it looks like I was right. Like I said however it’s on a topic I know relatively little about so other than arrogantly pretending to know all the answers I am more than happy to sit back and educate myself by reading what other members who know more about this topic have to say and learn form them. I think it is interesting that you have not said anything of any relevance to this thread other than criticise me, leaves me wondering what exactly is your problem? You have not been hear very long, have I offended you in some way?

I do welcome criticism but at least make it relevant constructive criticism and not just an arrogant rant.

Looks like February is a pretty active month for NEO's. It appears another one for the 17th at 4.6LD and one on the 19th at 7LD.
The list is from spaceweatherat the bottom of the page.

Hello everyone,

A bit of a late post, but I saw it with my own eyes! The wife and I got up to watch it. We live about 20 minutes away from the Gin Gin Observatory. It was just a small streak across the sky just below the Southern Cross above the horizon. Very boring really, it all happened literally in a flash, sorta like a shooting star but quicker?

Still, i'm happy to say I saw it

Uhhhh. . . isn't that what you just did?

Besides, this is ATS. If it weren't for criticizing other people and their opinions this site would shut down due to lack of traffic. haha

Amazingly, twice (two different radio news services--one being NPR that my boss keeps on at work) have ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY ESTABLISHED that the Russian meteorite as NOTHING to do w/2012 DA 14.

Don't ask ANY questions. In mere hours (in the dead of night for what would be western experts, and w/o the crater or soil being examined) it has been DETERMINED that the two incidents are NOT related.

Glad you are bright enough to realise (unlike many) that the meteor travelled East to west and along a line parallel or near as to the orbit of earth. Whereas the "huge asteroid" is travelling south to north at 90 degrees to the plane of earths orbit. One would have to be quite moronic or desperate for a conspiracy to think that two objects in different directions moving on paths at 90 degrees to one another hundreds of thousands of miles apart at the first encounter 24hrs ago were related !!!!!!!

But hey this ATS, leave brains at doorway!

Just for a reference, our Cable TV went out just as the asteroid was supposed to pass by earth, so I really wonder if that's why my cable was going in and out. I even was checking on other channels and they too were blinking in and out. A couple stations even went totally out for no more than 2 minutes.

So I guess this asteroid did have an effect on some things here on earth.
