Re: Upcoming Earth-asteroid
.09 * Lunar Distance (240,000 mi)= 21,600 miles

That's closer than the geo-stationary satellite orbit (Clarke Belt @ 23,000 mi.)

Funny, in that article dated October 30th it says:

The asteroid, referred to as 2012 DA14, has a diameter of approximately 45m and an estimated mass of 130,000 tonnes. It was discovered at the start of 2012 and is set to travel between the Earth and our geostationary communication satellites on 15 February 2013. At a distance of just 22,500km this will be the closest asteroid ‘fly by’ in recorded history.


That would be 0,0585. Seems the calculations aren't done yet.

Re: Upcoming Earth-asteroid
If you look at the distance indicator for February 16th, it says 3.0E-4AU. If my research is correct, this means it will be .00003 AU from Earth, which is about 2,789 miles. That bugger is going to hit us if nothing changes its' course between now and February 16th.

Re: Upcoming Earth-asteroid
A collision with even a small asteroid could be disastrous, with an impact from 2012 DA14 estimated to equal the destructive force of an atomic bomb. “The world's most famous impact crater – the Barringer Crater in Arizona, U.S. – which is about 1,200m in diameter and 170m deep, was formed when an object thought to have been just 50m in diameter hit the Earth,” said Horner.

Re: Upcoming Earth-asteroid
people on have been saying lately it will hit somewhere in northwest texas. if not, but same goegraphic area lets say middle of america. wouldn't this cause a major impact on america's bread basket? what will happen to our food supply example grain, corn, cattle, pigs, chicken, ect. something like this would have sever consequences on america for years. not even adding concern about the debris placed into the atmosphere, which could cause blocking out the sun and respirtory problems "black lung" we could turn into a third world
