bump. an asteroid more than 75ft diameter could cause some trouble if it hits in the right spot. plus with the condition code, it's just too close for comfort.

ok, i admit it, i'm a bimbo. so i get this asteroid is close, but really close? is it going to hit us? on the 28th?
i noticed on rsoe they aren't showing any asteroids after today, i thought that was kind of weird... what would the impact be like? do we have any idea where it might hit?

The data arc span is one day. They just found it yesterday, so the certainty of the trajectory for this one is far from conclusive.

This is a 26 M asteroid that is travelling at 13 km/s. If it is an iron meteorite (less common than a stony meteorite), but for the sake of looking at the worst case scenario lets calculate that it is. We can then get a look at what this collision would resemble.



The average interval between impacts of this size somewhere on Earth is 351.4 years

Energy before atmospheric entry: 6.22 x 10^15 Joules = 1.49 MegaTons TNT

The projectile begins to breakup at an altitude of 9540 meters = 31300 ft
The projectile reaches the ground in a broken condition. The mass of projectile strikes the surface at velocity 5.46 km/s = 3.39 miles/s
The impact energy is 1.1 x 10^15 Joules = 0.26 MegaTons.
The broken projectile fragments strike the ground in an ellipse of dimension 0.223 km by 0.16 km



Crater shape is normal in spite of atmospheric crushing; fragments are not significantly dispersed.
Transient Crater Diameter: 520 meters ( = 1700 feet )
Transient Crater Depth: 184 meters ( = 603 feet )
Final Crater Diameter: 650 meters ( = 2130 feet )
Final Crater Depth: 138 meters ( = 454 feet )
The crater formed is a simple crater.
The floor of the crater is underlain by a lens of broken rock debris (breccia) with a maximum thickness of 64.1 meters ( = 210 feet ).
At this impact velocity ( < 12 km/s), little shock melting of the target occurs.


Most ejecta is blocked by Earth's atmosphere.

Seismic Effects:
Richter Scale Magnitude: 4.2

OP in this thread states they received email (works at FAA) and they would be conducting an emergency preparedness drill May 24 (today)and the scenario was:
NASA notifies FAA of a "meteor strike"

No link in thread, i could see why they would not post an email. That said, its odd it was posted about 24 hrs before this and the term meteor was used and not asteroid. it is one added degree to link the two.
