0.5 LD!! Even Closer Near Earth Asteroid 2012 KT42 Discovered Today!!
Discovered today!!! Only 8,800 miles from Earth!!

WTF is going on out there?!?!??!?!?

<SNIP>

Tomorrow, May 29, 2012 at about 07:07 UT, the asteroid designated 2012 KT42 will pass only ~14,100 km (8,800 miles) or about ~0.06 lunar distance (or 0.0001379 AU) above the Earth's surface. The asteroid was discovered by Mt. Lemmon Survey with a 1.5-m reflector + CCD on May 28, 2012 at magnitude ~18.1.

According to its absolute magnitude (H=28.8) this asteroid has an estimated size of roughly 3-10 meters, so it is a small object. We have been able to follow-up this object soon after his discovery while it was still on the neocp, from the Siding Spring-Faulkes Telescope South on 2012, May 28.4, through a 2.0-m f/10.0 Ritchey-Chretien + CCD.

At the moment of our images from FTS, "2012 KT42" was moving at about ~3.63 "/min and its magnitude was ~17.5. At the moment of its close approach around 07UT of tomorrow, 2012 KT42 will be bright as magnitude ~12.0 and moving at ~11021"/min.

What I was wondering is this just the tip of the iceberg? Are these the first fragments of a larger asteroid that perhaps was torn apart somehow, either by another impact or by getting too close to a larger object?

Then I figured that if there were a larger central body of an asteroid it probably would have been detected by now. Even still, we could be in for some more small objects like this if this is the precursor to an asteroid that has been torn apart.

You are a moron if you think there is a 360degree radar constantly scanning outer space for asteroids. So of course they will come out of nowhere.

and this NEO's will come up every day for the next few months, and they will be getting closer. This is all part of a cover up.

Even the NEO's are fake.

its a Planet which is pushing debrie if front of it

NASA is hiding this and calls it NEO's
But there will be a day NASA cannot longer hide it anymore because it will be 1000's of NEO's every day

The Planet will then be visible for every one to see...

Russian astronomer friend of mine says this:

"Rotation period of asteroid 2012 KP24, by measurements from the ISON-NM observatory is 150.004 second. Very fast!"

This object has a consistent earthquake history:

Last 5 close approaches to Earth:

1990-11-15 -- 0.187 AU
1990-11-15 -- Magnitude 6.7 INDONESIA

1993-12-29 -- 0.535 AU
1993-12-29 -- Magnitude 7.0 VANUATU

1998-05-22 -- 0.135 AU
1998-05-22 -- Magnitude 6.6 Bolivia
1998-05-23 -- Magnitude 6.7 NICARAGUA

2001-08-22 -- 0.359 AU
2001-08-21 -- Magnitude 7.1 New Zealand

2004-11-30 -- 0.049 AU
2004-11-28 -- Magnitude 7.0 Japan

2012-05-29 -- 0.00014 AU
2012-05-29 -- Magnitude 6.7+ ???

Based on this I would watch for a quake 6.7+ for within one day of May 29 -- but we might already have had it with the 6.7 in Argentina today.

This relatively sudden sighting of not one but two asteroids and both coming close has me concerned that maybe this is the leading tip of an asteroid storm.

It does have a history of making close approaches. We just were not aware of it until now. Based on current observations the orbit has been crunched. I used data from the JPL and Horizon system to get dates [link to ssd.jpl.nasa.gov]

Here are the results:

1990-11-15

1993-12-29

1988-05-22

2001-08-22

2004-11-30
