Re: Asteroid 2012 DA14
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.
 Quoting: StormeyGoddess


Except its' closest approach is actually on the 16th. On the 15th, it is .0034 AU, or 316,000 miles. It will be about .0003 AU or 27,000 miles from Earth on the 16th. That doesn't seem close enough to hit, but why are they lying about the day?

 Quoting: Meggarea


Does no one read the disclaimer on that stupid java applet?

"Theapplet wasimplemented using 2-bodymethods, and henceshould not be used for determining accurate long-term trajectories(over several yearsor decades) or planetary encounter circumstances."

And even that aside, I'm guessing you only looked at the distance at midnight on each day. They didn't lie, close approach is at 19:25 UT on the 15th, thus when you look at the distance at midnight on the 16th it's closer than it is at midnight on the 15th. And please don't use the java applet for planetary encounters like this, it's just a two-body quick browse tool. They have a very accurate table of the close approach times and distances right below, which shows it on Feb 15, 2013 at 19:25.
 Quoting: Dr. Astro


Well, sure I read the disclaimer, but I was not trying to use it for long term predictions, or to decide if it was going to hit anything. I already know it won't hit us. :)

I am not exactly a rocket scientist, though, and this was a bit different than any I had seen previously, so I was a little concerned. Just so that I am clear, how close will it be on its' closest approach?

Thanks, by the way. You help keep my inner crazy person in check.

Re: Asteroid 2012 DA14
I have never made a prediction before, but here's some food for thought...

We've had soooo many astronomers point out that Asteroid 2012 DA14 will not hit Earth, but what are we missing????

Is there a better chance of 2012 DA14 hitting our moon!!!!!

Astro, where are you on this????? Maybe Doom is still on?!
 Quoting: StormeyGoddess


It is on course for a near...very near miss...but what everybody seem to forget is that our gravitational field might pull it in. Also how will the moon affect the orbit of DA14
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 30963098


I guess they have calculated both.

when I stumbled upon it a few months ago and did the orbital on it it was as tight a miss as any I'd seen to date. closer in fact. and the indicator with regard to the potential for disaster was higher as well.

isn't that the RUSH DATE they put on some of those underground bunkers they had contractors working on? guy started a thread a few weeks ago indicating that he'd been given till June 2013 to finish a certain installation underground and was recently informed he had to have it finished no latter than February 14, 2013. this made everyone wonder if it had something to do with DA14, obviously, due to the time crunch specifics.

guess we'll find out

No it won't hit us this time but we might want to start preparing for 2020 when it makes a return visit

Let's keep our fingers crossed and hope it misses us then as well

this bad boy has a very good chance of knocking our satellites out...

knowing my luck... the only satellite that is knocked out will be hughes net... my ISP lol
 Quoting: Dr. Acula


LOL, right??? Did you watch Astro's video? It has a chance of taking out about four satellites...

I can go find the link, but it may take me some time...

...

How do you know this answer? Or, are you just making an assumption based on movies you've seen?
 Quoting: phoomp


it's common sense. i would. you would too if you were in their position.

if a 10 mile rock was on direct collision course, i'd rather not know.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 30956944

Assumption, then.

And, here is the biggest problems with assumptions. You are assuming that our global leaders would keep this knowledge a secret, because that's what you would do. Not everyone thinks as you do.

That isn't what I would do.
 Quoting: phoomp


No proof but I have heard insider testimony that NASAs operational procedure is NOT to disclose any news of impending danger to the planet as it is feared by the higher ups that societal chaos or collapse would ensue... and they are probably right...

If you KNEW 100% that there would be a global coastal event on February 15, 2013... because NASA knew and reported an ocean impact zone... wouldn't your priorities change?
 Quoting: TheTruthWorker




my priorities will change as soon as something DOES hit earth and we then have proof that they didn't bother alerting anyone...

all deaths occuring from same will be on their hands in that event. period.

sooner or later they will have crossed their own eliptic and entered that uncertain territory wherein the hunters become the hunted so to speak

hehehe

This asteroid has no chance of hitting us. LMAO. NASA would of had thing think deflected by now if it was going to hit. Don't forget, they don't want to die from a dam asteroid impact.
 Quoting: MayanGod


Well I don't expect it to hit us but what makes you think we could deflect an asteroid? That only happens in the movies...we haven't as a nation or a planet invested the resources to develop this capability.

Complete scientific reports have been published on numerous methods we have now for defeating threatening asteroids but you need lead time to implement... And leaders who prefer to stop it.

yeah, they're still uncertain as to what's headed their way in the near future

You can get information about asteroid orbits and close approachs at the JPL Horizons database.

[link to ssd.jpl.nasa.gov]

For 2012 DA14 closest possible approach to Earth is 0.000181313271702344 AU (27,124 km). For the Moon it is 0.00260897047648501 AU (390,000 km).
