>>> Forget the 3 Comets - ASTEROID YU55 D00M COMING IN NOVEMBER <<<
I finally decided to checkout asteroid YU55, scheduled for a planet near you in November. Seems my program didn't even have this 400 meter diameter Small-Body in it's database, that's why I haven't mentioned it until now....oops. The JPL page is here - [link to ssd.jpl.nasa.gov]

Here's the NASA update from Mar 10th;
[link to neo.jpl.nasa.gov]

"Near-Earth asteroid 2005 YU55 will pass within 0.85 lunar distances from the Earth on November 8, 2011. The upcoming close approach by this relatively large 400 meter-sized, C-type asteroid presents an excellent opportunity for synergistic ground-based observations including optical, near infrared and radar data. The attached animated illustration shows the Earth and moon flyby geometry for November 8th and 9th when the object will reach a visual brightness of 11th magnitude and should be easily visible to observers in the northern and southern hemispheres. The closest approach to Earth and the Moon will be respectively 0.00217 AU and 0.00160 AU on 2011 November 8 at 23:28 and November 9 at 07:13 UT..."

It seems YouTube didn't like that video, the audio was out of sync. I made another video, longer, better than the last one which has been removed. Let's hope it works this time.

But, but, all those people are worried about a Comet that's going to pass a whole 0.234 au away while this sucka will be coming inside the orbit of the moon at 0.00217 au. This is close, and as usual, subject to revision...

lmao

Yep.

Doomtardism has nothing to do with facts or rationality.
It's all about the hype du jour.

Rather sheeplish I might add.
