Someone help with YU55 ... I am confused -- Closer than previously stated
[link to ssd.jpl.nasa.gov]

does it not say there that this thing will be within
97000 miles of earth and not the 202000 they have been
saying???

Additional Information
Earth MOID = .00103961 AU
T_jup = 5.400

it says the closest distance will be 0.0022 AU

0.0022 Astronomical Units = 329,115.6 kilometers
(204.502 miles)
The average distance from Earth to the Moon is 384,403 kilometers
(238,857 miles)

where are you getting the closer distance from?

Op is looking at the Earth MOID (Minimum Orbit Intersection Distance) but does not understand what it means.


It is the closest it comes to Earths orbit path (even if the Earth is not there). So it does not even come close to crossing the path earth takes around the sun.

Re: Someone help with YU55 ... I am confused -- Closer than previously stated
The minimum orbital intersection distance (MOID) is the minimum distance between the osculating orbits of two objects. It indicates the closest possible approach of the two objects except where excluded by protective resonance.

Because of long-range planetary gravitational perturbations and, particularly, close planetary approaches, asteroid orbits change with time.

Doesn't matter, OP. Close is not a hit. Close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenade tossing. Any other occasions are meaningless.

In my book you're no dumb ass dude. In fact, nobody's factored in the the moon's pull on this 1300 ft asteroid, and it's such a shame. Moreover, they provided a simulation that's way too fast for peeeps to comprehend the finer details, but WTF, i'm just another doom junkie on here like you????
