Oh for sure- he just often gives the impression that even if the earth was being pelted with shit left and right he'd still be debating with people (as long as the internet was working) rather than helping anyone find a solution to whatever was going on.

Of course, if there is an atmospheric detonation or impact from the asteroid, NASA will claim it is unrelated to 1988TA. The way they said the explosion over Siberia in February was unrelated to Asteroid 2012 DA14, which had its close fly-by... on the very same day! hiding

The guy in OPs video is an idiot. His numbers aren't matching up to the orbit diagram vs "closest approach" because he's cycling through 1 day increments instead of 1 hour increments.

Don't listen to Nasa... They say they don't know much about it.. 360191) 1988 TA was discovered by J. Phinney and J. Mueller during the second Palomar Sky Survey on Oct 5, 1988.
The asteroid's physical characteristics are effectively unknown except for its absolute magnitude of 20.8,
which suggests a diameter within a factor of two of about 0.2 km. This asteroid has been associated
with the C-class by Binzel et al. (2003, Asteroids III), but we did not find an original source
of measurements that would provide a direct link to a dark optical albedo.
G. Kronk (WGN, vol. 17, 1989) suggested that the orbit of 1988 TA resembles two streams in the
Virginid meteor shower.

1988 TA has been classified as a hiding!!!!!!Potentially Hazardous Asteroid!!!!!!!hiding (PHA) by the IAU's Minor Planet Center.

1988TA gets 101,000 hits if googled.

Miss distance 13.1 LD.

If all the amatuers have the ephmerides and have examined their validity, how is NASA hiding something.

WHY are there so many threads on GLP exactly like this one when there is a close approach that claim NASA is lying, and then the called in question object does exactly what NASA says it will.

(360191) 1988 TA Goldstone Radar Observations Planning



Background
Instructions

Goldstone Masterlog



-------------------------------------------------------------​-------------------

Background

(360191) 1988 TA was discovered by J. Phinney and J. Mueller during the second Palomar Sky Survey on Oct 5, 1988.
The asteroid's physical characteristics are effectively unknown except for its absolute magnitude of 20.8,
which suggests a diameter within a factor of two of about 0.2 km. This asteroid has been associated
with the C-class by Binzel et al. (2003, Asteroids III), but we did not find an original source
of measurements that would provide a direct link to a dark optical albedo.
G. Kronk (WGN, vol. 17, 1989) suggested that the orbit of 1988 TA resembles two streams in the
Virginid meteor shower.

This asteroid will approach within 0.0336 AU (13.1 lunar distances) on May 10.
1988 TA should be a moderately strong radar target at Goldstone and a strong radar target at Arecibo.
Imaging may be possible at Goldstone if 1988 TA is a relatively slow rotator. At Arecibo, the
signal-to-noise ratios should be strong enough for imaging with 7.5 m resolution.

Five tracks are scheduled at Goldstone from May 7-12 and at Arecibo from May 7-11.

1988 TA will be a good optical target for about two weeks from the end of April to the middle
of May when it will reach 16th magnitude at favorable solar elongations.
Lightcurves obtained prior to the radar observations would be particularly helpful.

1988 TA has been classified as a "Potentially Hazardous Asteroid" (PHA) by the IAU's Minor Planet Center.

How about looking up the definition of a "Potentially Hazardous Asteroid"?
"Potentially Hazardous Asteroids (PHAs) are currently defined based on parameters that measure the asteroid's potential to make threatening close approaches to the Earth.
Specifically, all asteroids with an Earth Minimum Orbit Intersection Distance (MOID) of 0.05 AU or less and an absolute magnitude (H) of 22.0 or less are considered PHAs. In other words, asteroids that can't get any closer to the Earth (i.e. MOID) than 0.05 AU (roughly 7,480,000 km or 4,650,000 mi) or are smaller than about 150 m (500 ft) in diameter (i.e. H = 22.0 with assumed albedo of 13%) are not considered PHAs."

It classifies 1988 TA as a PHA because:
1) It's bigger than 150 meters
2) It comes within 855 thousand kilometers (current data give 934 thousand kilometers) to Earth at Sept. 30/31, 2053 [link to ssd.jpl.nasa.gov]

Re: 400m Asteroid 360191 1988TA To Hit Earth May 9th Or 10th 2013?
Why do all the doom tards get their "information" from the "YouTube University"?
Are they unable to do their own research?
Are they unable to think for themself?
Are they unable to do some logical thinking?


OP, did you understand what you have copied and pasted?
OP, did you go through the complete document?

Don't listen to Nasa... They say they don't know much about it.. 360191)
1988 TA was discovered by J. Phinney and J. Mueller during the second Palomar Sky Survey on Oct 5, 1988.
The asteroid's physical characteristics are effectively unknown except for its absolute magnitude of 20.8, which suggests a diameter within a factor of two of about 0.2 km.
This asteroid has been associated with the C-class by Binzel et al. (2003, Asteroids III), but we did not find an original source of measurements that would provide a direct link to a dark optical albedo.
G. Kronk (WGN, vol. 17, 1989) suggested that the orbit of 1988 TA resembles two streams in the Virginid meteor shower.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 39498922

The physical characteristics (rotation of the asteroid), the composition and the spectral class are unknown.

The orbital parameters, and that's what matters regarding a close approach to Earth, are well known.


1988 TA has been classified as a !!!!!!Potentially Hazardous Asteroid!!!!!!! (PHA) by the IAU's Minor Planet Center.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 39498922

How about looking up the definition of a "Potentially Hazardous Asteroid"?
"Potentially Hazardous Asteroids (PHAs) are currently defined based on parameters that measure the asteroid's potential to make threatening close approaches to the Earth.
Specifically, all asteroids with an Earth Minimum Orbit Intersection Distance (MOID) of 0.05 AU or less and an absolute magnitude (H) of 22.0 or less are considered PHAs. In other words, asteroids that can't get any closer to the Earth (i.e. MOID) than 0.05 AU (roughly 7,480,000 km or 4,650,000 mi) or are smaller than about 150 m (500 ft) in diameter (i.e. H = 22.0 with assumed albedo of 13%) are not considered PHAs."

This artical wasn't there when my friend and I searched for it at first.. we found this with 2 youtube videos later..
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 39498922

Of course it was not there, because it is a new observation plan especially for this close approach.
But coming to this conclusion involves some thinking beyond copy and past of YouTube-University-Videos.


A little reserach beyond conspiracy sites would have revealed this document from 2001 (1988 TA is at line 24): [link to www.minorplanetcenter.net]
It classifies 1988 TA as a PHA because:
1) It's bigger than 150 meters
2) It comes within 855 thousand kilometers (current data give 934 thousand kilometers) to Earth at Sept. 30/31, 2053 [link to ssd.jpl.nasa.gov]


Next time do some reserch OP - prevents you from making a fool of yourself.
