2012 XE54 was discovered yesterday on December 9th.
It is a small 36 meter Apollo class near earth object.
It makes it's close approach between Earth and Moon...

Earth --- 2012-Dec-11 --- 10:08 UTC --- 0.0015 AU / .6 LD
Moon --- 2012-Dec-11 --- 16:52 UTC --- 0.0021 AU

It will pass through the Earth's shadow, a very rare event.

According to JPL Horizons data, previous close approaches were:

1982-Nov-11 --- 0.4910 AU
1991-Apr-14 --- 0.2563 AU
2002-Feb-22 --- 0.1752 AU
2012-Dec-11 --- 0.0015 AU (next)

Northern hemisphere. It's visible in Europe right now. Should mention, it will get better for southern hemisphere as it gets closer to closest approach. Right now the declination is +26. Doable from many places in the southern hemi but optimized for northerners.

Does anyone ever predict the possible impact of a rogue asteroid colliding with an inbound comet, changing it's trajectory? Just curious! I mean with everyone speculating, thought I would toss that out there.....look down the road a bit.

Re: Asteroid to whiz by Earth and Moon December 11, discovered yesterday
endtime
If you will notice there is an asteroid coming in from the left of the screen and it's about to hit the earth. There are only two types of people on the earth. One is going up to Heaven and one is still on the earth, very much absorbed in his cell phone/Ipad or whatever.
This is taking place at the time of a message from the past in the period of the pyramids/Mayans. There is an alignment of planets at the top (looks like an eclipse) at this time and the elite/government are prepared and in their bunkers underground discussing the arrival of the 'Son' which could be the Son of God who is partially covered with a rectangular red block which represents the past (which also covers half of the pyramids).

I think this picture, which is currently on the Bank of America in N.C. and painted by the Illuminati pretty much says exactly where we are in history.

The question I have is this: there are two people who are left on the earth at the time this happens....one is going up to Heaven and one is left on the earth because his priorities are here on the earth...

Just my two cents which is probably worthless but thought I'd share....hf

Well fair warning, this thing is magnitude 13 at best, so it requires a large telescope or deep space imaging with a decent telescope to be able to see it. Here's my first image of it; since the weather's bad here I dialed into a telescope in Spain to remotely image the asteroid. It's the bright white line in the top left window.

Re: Asteroid to whiz by Earth and Moon December 11, discovered yesterday
So, an asteroid is discovered on the 9th and will come by on the 11th... that's only 3 days notice.

Who's to say a bigger and more devastating one won't show up before the 21st (or sometime soon)? All of these scientists who say that if something were coming to destroy us that we would see it by now are full of it...it could happen, despite what they say - they don't know everything.

By the way, I also saw the flash last night (it was like lightning in a clear sky).

Re: Asteroid to whiz by Earth and Moon December 11, discovered yesterday
Here's a couple of stacked images I took of the asteroid. I dailed into T-18 on the itelescope network in Spain and took a series of 60 second exposures of the asteroid. For the first run I did 5 exposures back to back and for the second I did 3 exposures (though for the second one some thin clouds were starting to come in).
[link to i319.photobucket.com]
[link to i319.photobucket.com]
The asteroid is a series of dashed lines in each image, each dash is the asteroid moving over the course of one of the exposures that make up the image. It's hauling ass, and if you look closely you can see that the dashes are slightly longer in the second image than the first because it's getting closer to earth with every minute.
