Another Frequent Flyer! - Near Earth Object
Another...that was quick.


UPCOMING CLOSE APPROACHES TO EARTH

Object
Name (2006 BO7)

Close
Approach
Date 2006-Jan-25

Miss
Distance
(AU)0.0050

Miss
Distance (LD)1.9

Estimated
Diameter* 3.7 m - 8.2 m

Relative
Velocity
(km/s)10.01

NEO's that close to earth and three days apart are unusual.

Re: Another Frequent Flyer! - Near Earth Object
Gee, I wonder if that's the object that is being tracked in south america that they are very concerned about....thinking it may cause big quakes and volcanic eruptions...... I caught hell for posting about this NEO on?Sunday.

These Near Earth Objects are very interesting to me. Don't mind the detractors.

Cassie, do you spend all your time searching the data for NEOs??

At least you should have realised by now that, despite the constant claims to the contrary, the people tracking these objects and calculating their orbits are bang on the money.

How can anyone possible think an object less than 10 meters in diameter passing at a distance almost twice the orbit of the moon (~500000 miles) can cause an earthquake?

66289,

You said:
"At least you should have realised by now that, despite the constant claims to the contrary, the people tracking these objects and calculating their orbits are bang on the money."

Really....thats not they themself say, this is what they say.

From the same NASA NEO Website:

NEAR EARTH OBJECTS CLOSE-APPROACH UNCERTAINTIES

This page describes the limits placed on the Near Earth Objects close-approach tables and discusses the uncertainties in those data.

CHARACTERIZING THE UNCERTAINITIES
Perhaps the most important issue to remember when interpreting our NEO close-approach tables is the inherent uncertainty in each NEO's orbit. This uncertainty is related to several parameters used in the orbit determination process including the number of observations (measurements), the time spanned by those observations (data arc), the quality of the observations (e.g. radar vs optical), and the geometry of the observations. Of these parameters, the time spanned by the observations generally has the greatest effect on the orbital uncertainty.

Even though the NEO orbits are uncertain, it is possible to estimate the size of these uncertainties and place limits on the close-approach distances. For example, we provide a nominal distance, and the minimum distance (which is the minimum distance between the 3-sigma Earth target-plane error ellipse and the Earth's surface).

We also note that Earth close-approach statistics for NEOs can change (often by large amounts) as new data become available to update their orbits.

LIMITS APPLIED TO NEO CLOSE-APPROACH DATA
In an effort to include only close-approach data that are reasonably well determined and for which the uncertainties are not overly large, the data presented in our NEO close-approach tables are selected using the following conservative limits. Specifically:

* only Earth close-approaches whose close-approach time uncertainties are within 10 days (3-sigma), and
* only Earth close-approaches from the portion of the NEO's orbit where the position uncertainties are within 0.1 AU (3-sigma).

Although these limits could be refined, they are sufficiently conservative to exclude any highly uncertain Earth close-approaches.

Re: Another Frequent Flyer! - Near Earth Object
Cassie thanks for posting!

I thought I was seeing something or maybe this NEO?

You know Orions Belt... its to the back of it... behind some down from where I am seeing it in LA Calli...

Its bright and blinky...

I wonder if any one else notices it ?

Great post Cassie...

Peace!

So it looks like Asteroid (2006 BO7) will be for today .0059 AU and then tomorrow the 26th at .0056 AU... then it jumps to .0096 on the 27th...

Cloudy there oh! Around here we have been getting some high winds in a lot of areas... but its cleaned the air somewhat- usually smog is a problem when trying to view anything... instead of clouds...

Re: Another Frequent Flyer! - Near Earth Object
Thanks for the post Cassie 1.

Glad you posted the wording from NASA on the uncertinties. Was about to comment to one of the 'debunkers' that most ALL scientific calculations contain a plus and minus number showing how far off the data given may be ( in this case Luner Distances ).
Also, there is NO WAY to tell if ANY of these objects have been impacted by OTHER space objects that will change their course, even including in the last few hours. ANY look at some of the asteroid/comet pictures sent back by our 'flybys', CLEARLY show dozens of poc marks from just such accidental collisions, so this is NOT mere speculation on my part.
