It's been a long time. What's with these asteroids?

I keep hearing about near flybys, but they're all passing at distances millions of miles from Earth.. I wonder if that's exactly what we are looking at.

I would see more of a connection to satellites roaming the universe air space than asteroids. I think that will be a problem with our infrastructure in the future.

Juuust leaving a post to look in and see what the answer to this strange bunching of asteroids around Earth is.

If there's an answer, of course.

Thanks, Op. Definitely odd.

What ever the simulation is changes scale radically, with a fast zoom out and a fast zoom in. There are many NEO's orbiting Earth and this shows them as a few present when zoomed in, and as clusters when massively zoomed out around Earth and then at different scales.

When it starts off zoomed in, you can see some asteroids orbiting around themselves (nothing) in the LeGrange points between Earth and Sun.

Bruh, get the app and try it yourself
It happens the same regardless of scale.

The app is changing the scale automatically by design over variable distance and variable time. It may start itself up like this as a demo, or you are putting in the parameters. That is what the app does. Read the stats and the rates of the timeline.

Your app is showing small object at different speeds orbiting Earth, and of course, the whole mass is orbiting the Sun, which in turn orbits the Galaxy...
Astronomy is your friend.

I get the app. first thing I see is a astroid moving Fast to earth LOL!
but when you move it side ways, its a Big distance.
It Starts in the Simulation!
you can see moons to.

It has pluto as a planet YAY!

LOL just had a look at your Pics.
You are in Simulation!

That '20 years of asteroids' video uses data "as of January 2018"
the oddity occuring in-app that we're discussing here happens now, this week in 2021
There is no parameter input in-app. The app uses data from NASA JPL. Try it yourself and you'll know

Still doesn't explain the unique convergence pattern...

So long and thanks for all the fish?

Heya Swo0p, I found the asnwer to this mystery!
I felt it deserved its own post, what's the use of it being buried on the back page right?
The people need to know! Check it out:

I was listening to some discussion they did hit earth but our ionsphere bounced them away. etc I dont understand asteroids trajectory well enough to fully understand it all tho
