Most of the posters here are not claiming that this will hit, just that this a unique event. Nothing this big has come this close in modern times that we can compare it to. The event in Russia is evidence that impact is not necessary for effect.

That being said ... please consider what your intention participating on this thread is, to inform or berate ???

Also consider a discussion on this thread is still possible by ignoring those that are getting off of themselves .... wink

Heaven forbid you should pay attention to a post that might contain useful information about the trajectory and uncertainty region of the asteroid... That's fine though, that's your choice, as always. Just don't try to push that choice onto others. Kthnxbye!

Another bit of trivia. Both of Mars' moons are asteroids captured by Mars' orbit. One is orbiting slowly out and away, the other orbiting slowly in, and will eventually impact the surface.

Why did it explode before impact?

Many witnesses saw large orbs of light shoot up and impacted on the object.

This is when the meteor exploded before impact.
It did cause major damage by exploding in the atmosphere but it would of been far worse if it impacted on land.

The earth seems to be relatively immune to these...ask yourself why?
 Quoting: mysterynomore

Because God has long-term plans for His creation. And an ELE killing everyone off is not one of them.

The earth will be ELE'd however in just over 1000 or so years, but those living on it at that time will be transported off before it happens, so they won't die off.

The earth has to be rebooted and cleansed from time to time.

No worries though, if you make it that far, you'll already be immortal, so it will be of little concern to you at that time.

Chew this over folks.........

diameter ~50 meters (+- a factor of two)
D = 50 meters An educated guess based on the spectral class

2012 DA14's absolute magnitude of 24.4 suggests a diameter within a factor of two of about 50 meters.
Nick Moskovitz (Carnegie Institution, Washington, DC) reported that he obtained lightcurves and
spectroscopy shortly after 2012 DA14 was discovered.

[link to echo.jpl.nasa.gov]

Diameter = 50 meters Distance 50km Dense Rock 3000kgm3

Energy before atmospheric entry: 1.41 x 10^16 Joules = 3.38 MegaTons TNT

The average interval between impacts of this size somewhere on Earth is 871.7 year


The projectile begins to breakup at an altitude of 48500 meters = 159000 ft
The projectile bursts into a cloud of fragments at an altitude of 7110 meters = 23300 ft.
The residual velocity of the projectile fragments after the burst is 3.97 km/s = 2.47 miles/s.

The energy of the airburst is 1.26 x 10^16 Joules = 3.01 x 10^0 MegaTons.
No crater is formed, although large fragments may strike the surface.

The air blast will arrive approximately 2.55 minutes after impact.
Peak Overpressure: 4400 Pa = 0.044 bars = 0.625 psi
Max wind velocity: 10.2 m/s = 22.8 mph
Sound Intensity: 73 dB (Loud as heavy traffic)


Diameter = 100 meters Distance 50km Dense Rock 3000kgm3

The projectile begins to breakup at an altitude of 48500 meters = 159000 ft
The projectile reaches the ground in a broken condition. The mass of projectile strikes the surface at velocity 4.87 km/s = 3.02 miles/s
The impact energy is 1.86 x 10^16 Joules = 4.45 MegaTons.
The broken projectile fragments strike the ground in an ellipse of dimension 0.799 km by 0.565 km

Energy before atmospheric entry: 1.13 x 10^17 Joules = 2.7 x 10^1 MegaTons TNT

The average interval between impacts of this size somewhere on Earth during the last 4 billion years is 6 x 10^3 years


Crater shape is normal in spite of atmospheric crushing; fragments are not significantly dispersed.
Transient Crater Diameter: 1.01 km ( = 0.629 miles )
Transient Crater Depth: 358 meters ( = 1170 feet )
Final Crater Diameter: 1.27 km ( = 0.786 miles )
Final Crater Depth: 270 meters ( = 884 feet )
The crater formed is a simple crater.
The floor of the crater is underlain by a lens of broken rock debris (breccia) with a maximum thickness of 125 meters ( = 410 feet ).
At this impact velocity ( < 12 km/s), little shock melting of the target occurs


The major seismic shaking will arrive approximately 10 seconds after impact.
Richter Scale Magnitude: 5
Mercalli Scale Intensity at a distance of 50 km:

Felt indoors by many, outdoors by few during the day. At night, some awakened. Dishes, windows, doors disturbed; walls make cracking sound. Sensation like heavy truck striking building. Standing motor cars rocked noticeably.

Felt by nearly everyone; many awakened. Some dishes, windows broken. Unstable objects overturned. Pendulum clocks may stop.


The air blast will arrive approximately 2.53 minutes after impact.
Peak Overpressure: 2040 Pa = 0.0204 bars = 0.29 psi
Max wind velocity: 4.77 m/s = 10.7 mph
Sound Intensity: 66 dB (Loud as heavy traffic)


at 10km
The air blast will arrive approximately 30.3 seconds after impact.
Peak Overpressure: 19200 Pa = 0.192 bars = 2.72 psi
Max wind velocity: 41.9 m/s = 93.8 mph
Sound Intensity: 86 dB (Loud as heavy traffic)

Damage Description:
Glass windows will shatter.
About 30 percent of trees blown down; remainder have some branches and leaves blown off.



Diameter = 100 meters Distance 50km Ocean 1000m

The projectile begins to breakup at an altitude of 49800 meters = 163000 ft
The projectile reaches the ground in a broken condition. The mass of projectile strikes the surface at velocity 5.23 km/s = 3.25 miles/s
The impact energy is 2.15 x 10^16 Joules = 5.13 MegaTons.
The broken projectile fragments strike the ground in an ellipse of dimension 0.802 km by 0.567 km


The crater opened in the water has a diameter of 1.67 km ( = 1.03 miles ).
= 2.7km3 is instantly pushed aside

For the crater formed in the seafloor:
The result of the impact is a crater field, not a single crater. The following dimensions are for the crater produced by the largest fragment.
Transient Crater Diameter: 33.3 meters ( = 109 feet )
Transient Crater Depth: 11.8 meters ( = 38.6 feet )
Final Crater Diameter: 41.6 meters ( = 136 feet )
Final Crater Depth: 8.85 meters ( = 29 feet )
The crater formed is a simple crater.
The floor of the crater is underlain by a lens of broken rock debris (breccia) with a maximum thickness of 4.1 meters ( = 13.5 feet ).
At this impact velocity ( < 12 km/s), little shock melting of the target occurs.


The major seismic shaking will arrive approximately 20 seconds after impact.
Richter Scale Magnitude: 1.5
Mercalli Scale Intensity at a distance of 100 km:

Nothing would be felt. However, seismic equipment may still detect shaking.


The air blast will arrive approximately 5.05 minutes after impact.
Peak Overpressure: 995 Pa = 0.00995 bars = 0.141 psi
Max wind velocity: 2.34 m/s = 5.22 mph
Sound Intensity: 60 dB (Loud as heavy traffic)

so at 50km on a boat in 1000m of water
The impact-generated tsunami wave arrives approximately 23.7 minutes after impact.
Tsunami wave amplitude is less than 1.94 meters ( = 6.38 feet).

so at 20km on a boat in 1000m of water
The impact-generated tsunami wave arrives approximately 4.73 minutes after impact.
Tsunami wave amplitude is between: 45.9 cm ( = 18.1 inches)?????? and 9.72 meters ( = 31.9 feet)

Re: 2012 DA14 WILL hit earth.. Confirmed.
The gravitational pull of the earth will in fact pull this baby in.

The impact site is unknown .

The scientific data has purposely been altered to cover this story up.

Even certain shills on this website have gone far enough to post trumped up data on this in the form of youtube video, and this person(s) are part of the cover up.

I know a few people on the higher up scale that said it was orginally not supposed to hit but it has been confirmed their data was dead wrong.

Lets just hope this thing doesnt land in a highly populated area.

Your government will hold an emergency broadcast 2 days before the event.

godspeed everyone.. i hope we get through this.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 7052443



There are many reputable scientists who support the contention of the OP. I have just concluded a telephone call with Dr. Matteo Bojanovich, who worked for NASA from 1983-1995, and Dr. Bojanovich is in agreement that the facts support a DA14 impact somewhere in Texas betweent he DFW and Lubbock area. Of course the government is covering this up. They know there would be chaos and the roads wouldbe jammed and people would be going crazy if this information went public.
 Quoting: dallasdog972


It would be a grave error of any government to not attempt to evacuate an area if this were indeed true.
 Quoting: TS66


TPTB are concerned with their own well-being, not the survival of a few million expendable people.
 Quoting: dallasdog972


Mass evacuation is not possible with out collapsing the economy.

In reality, according to leading studies, more people would die from economical fall out in efforts to save a population of a modern city.

There simply isn't enough resources to go around for millions of displaced people.


The most economical option is to let the population die with the infrastructure. Since we are a part of the infrastructure.

The energy of the airburst is 1.26 x 10^16 Joules = 3.01 x 10^0 MegaTons.
No crater is formed, although large fragments may strike the surface.

The air blast will arrive approximately 2.55 minutes after impact.
Peak Overpressure: 4400 Pa = 0.044 bars = 0.625 psi
Max wind velocity: 10.2 m/s = 22.8 mph
Sound Intensity: 73 dB (Loud as heavy traffic)


Diameter = 100 meters Distance 50km Dense Rock 3000kgm3

The projectile begins to breakup at an altitude of 48500 meters = 159000 ft
The projectile reaches the ground in a broken condition. The mass of projectile strikes the surface at velocity 4.87 km/s = 3.02 miles/s
The impact energy is 1.86 x 10^16 Joules = 4.45 MegaTons.
The broken projectile fragments strike the ground in an ellipse of dimension 0.799 km by 0.565 km

Energy before atmospheric entry: 1.13 x 10^17 Joules = 2.7 x 10^1 MegaTons TNT

The average interval between impacts of this size somewhere on Earth during the last 4 billion years is 6 x 10^3 years


Crater shape is normal in spite of atmospheric crushing; fragments are not significantly dispersed.
Transient Crater Diameter: 1.01 km ( = 0.629 miles )
Transient Crater Depth: 358 meters ( = 1170 feet )
Final Crater Diameter: 1.27 km ( = 0.786 miles )
Final Crater Depth: 270 meters ( = 884 feet )
The crater formed is a simple crater.
The floor of the crater is underlain by a lens of broken rock debris (breccia) with a maximum thickness of 125 meters ( = 410 feet ).
At this impact velocity ( < 12 km/s), little shock melting of the target occurs


The major seismic shaking will arrive approximately 10 seconds after impact.
Richter Scale Magnitude: 5
Mercalli Scale Intensity at a distance of 50 km:

Felt indoors by many, outdoors by few during the day. At night, some awakened. Dishes, windows, doors disturbed; walls make cracking sound. Sensation like heavy truck striking building. Standing motor cars rocked noticeably.

Felt by nearly everyone; many awakened. Some dishes, windows broken. Unstable objects overturned. Pendulum clocks may stop.


The air blast will arrive approximately 2.53 minutes after impact.
Peak Overpressure: 2040 Pa = 0.0204 bars = 0.29 psi
Max wind velocity: 4.77 m/s = 10.7 mph

Damage Description:
Glass windows will shatter.
About 30 percent of trees blown down; remainder have some branches and leaves blown off.



Diameter = 100 meters Distance 50km Ocean 1000m

The projectile begins to breakup at an altitude of 49800 meters = 163000 ft
The projectile reaches the ground in a broken condition. The mass of projectile strikes the surface at velocity 5.23 km/s = 3.25 miles/s
The impact energy is 2.15 x 10^16 Joules = 5.13 MegaTons.
The broken projectile fragments strike the ground in an ellipse of dimension 0.802 km by 0.567 km


The crater opened in the water has a diameter of 1.67 km ( = 1.03 miles ).
= 2.7km3 is instantly pushed aside

For the crater formed in the seafloor:
The result of the impact is a crater field, not a single crater. The following dimensions are for the crater produced by the largest fragment.
Transient Crater Diameter: 33.3 meters ( = 109 feet )
Transient Crater Depth: 11.8 meters ( = 38.6 feet )
Final Crater Diameter: 41.6 meters ( = 136 feet )
Final Crater Depth: 8.85 meters ( = 29 feet )
The crater formed is a simple crater.
The floor of the crater is underlain by a lens of broken rock debris (breccia) with a maximum thickness of 4.1 meters ( = 13.5 feet ).
At this impact velocity ( < 12 km/s), little shock melting of the target occurs.


The major seismic shaking will arrive approximately 20 seconds after impact.
Richter Scale Magnitude: 1.5
Mercalli Scale Intensity at a distance of 100 km:

Nothing would be felt. However, seismic equipment may still detect shaking.


The air blast will arrive approximately 5.05 minutes after impact.
Peak Overpressure: 995 Pa = 0.00995 bars = 0.141 psi
Max wind velocity: 2.34 m/s = 5.22 mph
Sound Intensity: 60 dB (Loud as heavy traffic)

so at 50km on a boat in 1000m of water
The impact-generated tsunami wave arrives approximately 23.7 minutes after impact.
Tsunami wave amplitude is less than 1.94 meters ( = 6.38 feet).

so at 20km on a boat in 1000m of water
The impact-generated tsunami wave arrives approximately 4.73 minutes after impact.
Tsunami wave amplitude is between: 45.9 cm ( = 18.1 inches)?????? and 9.72 meters ( = 31.9 feet)

.....could be much much worst than japans tsunami

Re: 2012 DA14 WILL hit earth.. Confirmed.
This is just a topic for consideration. During TMI programs Timeline and Starlines / SL2, doing in effect a remote viewing on 2020 and 2012, this item came up last round: something associated more with 2013, than 2012. I am not one to subscribe to prophesies and catastrophic hyperbole, and I am not stating this as such.
The Mayans chose to mark one of their major cycles in conjunction with the general crossing of the Sun at Winter Solstice at the Galactic Center/Dark Rift (range is more like 1960-2240, closer from 1998-2016). Also check here for other aligments. With that out of the way...

Event Unknown Feb.2013

Yes, well, we've seen how accurate the Mayans predictions of doom are now, haven't we? After the massively public failure of the December 21, 2012 Mayan doom prediction, I'm impressed that anyone can reference the Mayans with a straight face (nevermind wondering how the Mayans could have events in their calendar when their calendar ended 2 months prior to the event ...)
 Quoting: phoomp


And I suppose you are a Mayan????

How do you know FOR A FACT!!!! That was when their calendar ended????

Just Dumb.......
 Quoting: BoroBoro

Of course I know that all of the Mayan predictions are a bunch of hooey. But, the same people who told us that the Mayan calendar ended on Dec 21, 2012 are now telling us of 2013 Mayan predictions. I just find that funny.

It's actually irrelevant since it's not going to hit, so why are you bumping it?

Better question, why are you still slumming it on an "irrelevant" thread ???

Regardless whether this thing impacts or not, that's some great info.
