PLEASE NOTE: The Reality TV World Message Boards are filled with desperate attention-seekers pretending to be one big happy PG/PG13-rated family. Don't be fooled. Trying to get everyone to agree with you is like herding cats, but intolerance for other viewpoints is NOT welcome and respect for other posters IS required at all times. Jump in and play, and you'll soon find out how easy it is to fit in, but save your drama for your mama. All members are encouraged to read the complete guidelines. As entertainment critic Roger Ebert once said, "If you disagree with something I write, tell me so, argue with me, correct me--but don't tell me to shut up. That's not the American way."

... fly around the solar system and some of them come within close proximity to Earth.

Ball!

The next strike is somewhere around the next corner.

1. "RE: Space rocks"
I'm still waiting for another Tanguska Black Hole.

Or fixing my lawn sprinklers by Spring. Whichever comes first.

If it wasn't such a wimpy asteroid, this could be another "Whammy Opportunity", but don't ask me. Ask a Tyrannosaur.

In the total cosmic perspective of things, an asteroid smacking into a planet and erasing most of its living species (thereby creating a vacuum for new species) has its precedence.

Humans are possibly even less equipped than the dinosaurs to deal with such a catastrophe. No more Big Macs.

asteroid date(UT) miss distance(LD) size
2013 CY32 Feb 5 0.3 LD 10 m
1999 HA2 Feb 5 58 LD 1.3 km
2013 BA74 Feb 6 4.5 LD 35 m
2013 BS45 Feb 12 4.9 LD 29 m
3752 Camillo Feb 12 57.5 LD 3.4 km
2013 BV15 Feb 13 3.7 LD 60 m
1999 YK5 Feb 15 49.1 LD 2.1 km
2012 DA14 Feb 15 0.09 LD 65 m
2013 CE82 Feb 17 4.6 LD 44 m
2009 AV Feb 25 59.7 LD 1.0 km
LD means "Lunar Distance." 1 LD = 384,401 km, the distance between Earth and the Moon. 1 LD also equals 0.00256 AU.

Good month for near misses.

http://www.spaceweather.com/

Potentially Hazardous Asteroids (PHAs) are space rocks larger than approximately 100m that can come closer to Earth than 0.05 AU. None of the known PHAs is on a collision course with our planet, although astronomers are finding new ones all the time.

On February 12, 2013 there were 1379 potentially hazardous asteroids.

OK, now it's time to get serious about shooting them down.

Make no mistake about it, there are astrophysics scientists who have devoted their entire academic careers and lives to this very subject, writing books on it.

We're probably good for a few centuries at least, barring any unexpected and still yet unobserved perturbations in solar system dynamics.


Surfkitten Summer sigshop 2008

The movies are good in making us aware of the potential danger and its possibilities, but they are poor in dramatizing the actual response of an impending event. Rather than blowing up an asteroid, which may exacerbate the situation, a gentle nudge well in advance is really all it takes to make a potential impact a wild but harmless fly-by. The current rock is going to have its solar system trajectory majorly altered by it's near Earth fly-by.

Now they're saying 725 injured across a wide area. Apparently, most of the injuries are due to flying glass as a result of the sound energy of the sonic boom shattering windows.

Shame about all the damage and injuries, thankfully it wasn't as bad as it could have been.

Here's a video from 1972 with the nearest possible of near misses.

Not quite as earth and window shattering as the one in Russia, but this fast fireball hits the outside corner of the plate in lighting up the sky in the Bay area.

There's one more whizzing by, 2013 ET. They first found it on my birthday, less than a week ago. Scary, they didn't see it until it was almost upon us.

Asteroid 2013 ET is about 210 feet by 460 feet (64 meters by 140 m) in size, with some astronomers comparing its width to a football field. Its close approach to Earth comes just days after another space rock, the 33-foot (10 meters) asteroid 2013 EC, buzzed the Earth on Monday at a range just inside the moon's orbit.

Then we've got one of our first naked-eye visible comets in a while, Pan-STARRS (aka C/2011 L4).

Now that it's getting warmer, it's time to dust off the clock-driven Meade scope in the garage and take a peek.

Catch it while you can!

If you have a clear view of the western horizon about 15 minutes after twilight, you should be able to see the comet without using binoculars or a telescope. It will look like a bright point of light with its tail pointing nearly straight up from the horizon, according to the laboratory.

There do seem to more and more instances where we notice a killer comet/astroid just days before it crosses earth orbit.

But let's let Obama cut NASA's budget, one probably won't hit us in our life time. We're probably going to be OK.
