Bus Sized Asteroid Will Pass Very Close To Earth Tonight


Later today, an asteroid about the size of a large bus will pass very close to our planet. Although it will not strike us, it will move through the paths of Earth orbiting satellites.

The closest it will come to the surface of Earth will be about 11,000 kms. In contrast, the Moon is 384,000 kms from Earth

UPDATE:
NASA has announced that the Asteroid has passed us ... closer to Earth than many of our own orbiting satellites!!


SCARY PART OF THIS STORY:
The scariest thing about this asteroid is that it was only discovered hurtling towards Earth on June 22st ... a mere 5 days ago!!

Don't worry. Even if it was initially projected to hit the Earth, we have a large coterie of think tankers and columnists who would immediately commence reassuring us that the evidence was unpersuasive liberal hogwash and that the best thing to do would be nothing at all.

It looks like a giant butternut squash. Sorry, but it just does.

It does look like a squash ....

Missing the part where I should be scared about an object so small our atmosphere would burn it to cinders before it hit the ground....

Well now that you have introduced yourself ... explain where you were told to be scared?? What I said was the 'scary' part is that we don't have a lot of forewarning capability on this planet for objects that could strike Earth WITHOUT burning up in the atmosphere. I know you have a blog where your theme is to challenge things the MSM tells you to be afraid of - that's not at all what I did with this post.
