NASA Confirms Asteroid DOOM in Feb 2013.
“According to NASA, there is a distinct possibility that an asteroid recently identified by star gazers in Spain could hit Earth around February 15, 2013. Based on its size and trajectory, it’s estimated that the 60 to 100 meter wide asteroid, dubbed 2012 DA14, could be similar in scope and devastation to Tunguska should it enter our atmosphere.

Scientists aren’t exactly sure where on Earth the impact would occur, but they are sounding proximity warnings now:

Should a Tunguska type event occur on our planet today, especially over a populated metropolitan area, millions would be killed instantly, with many millions more being affected by the social and economic reverberations that may result from the catastrophe.”

2012 DA14 was discovered by the La Sagra Sky Survey in Spain on February 23, 2012.
This object will make an extremely close approach to within 0.00024 AU of Earth on February 15, 2013.
That is only about 0.09 lunar distances or about 4.5 Earth radii above Earth's surface.
The uncertainties in plane-of-sky position, Doppler frequency, and time delay will grow dramatically
during the approach, but even so, this object will not impact Earth.


Not much is known about this object except its absolute magnitude of 24.4, which suggests a diameter
within a factor of two of 50 m. Due to the extremely close approach, this object will be a very
strong radar target at Goldstone and we hope to image it with the highest resolution available
(3.75 meters) from the chirp system.

2012 DA14 will approach from the south and will enter Goldstone's declination range on February 16, 2013,
shortly after the closest approach. Afterward it will be a circumpolar object as it recedes from Earth.

Radar observations at Goldstone are scheduled on 2013 Feb. 16 and 17 and additional tracks may be added.

We need additional astrometry to improve the orbit. As a result, below we list circumstances for optical
observations starting many months before the encounter in order to help facilitate observations
by optical observers. The apparent magnitudes will be fainter than 22nd until until the beginning of
February, but the solar elongation will be only about 60 degrees, so obtaining optical astrometry
will be challenging. In addition, the asteroid will be at far southern declinations until Feb. 15
when it rapidly moves from about -75 deg to +75 deg in only a few hours.

This object will not be observable at Arecibo because it will rapidly move through Arecibo's
entire declination range in slightly more than one hour while Arecibo is pointed in a different direction.

2012 DA14 is too small to be classified as a "Potentially Hazardous Asteroid" (PHA), but it's comparable in size to the
object that formed Meteor Crater in Arizona, so clearly the Minor Planet Center should change the definition of a PHA.

Orbital and Physical Characteristics
orbit type Apollo
semimajor axis 1.002 AU
eccentricity 0.108
inclination 10.4 deg
perihelion distance 0.893 AU
aphelion distance 1.110 AU
absolute magnitude (H) 24.4
diameter ~0.05 km (+- a factor of two)
rotation period unknown
pole direction unknown
lightcurve amplitude unknown
spectral class unknown
