Why 2005 YU55 is a MAJOR concern.
[link to neo.jpl.nasa.gov]
3 Facts about YU55

1. On November 8th YU55 will become A lunar distance of 0.85, also 0.00217 AU (325,000 km; 202,000 mi) from Earth. The closest approach of any outer space object to earth in recent recorded human history.

2. YU55 will also become 0.00160 AU (239,000 km; 149,000 mi) from the moon. It's position will form a triangle with the earth and the moon.

3. YU55 is 1,500 feet in diameter and round shaped like a planet. It also seems to be evenly picking up Dust and ice particles along with it.


Why it should be of worry?
3 reasons.

1. When it creates that triangle with earth and the moon the gravity of both Earth & Moon will be powerful enough to change it's trajectory and degrade it's speed. This is bad for two reasons. If it slows down, it allows a much larger chance for debris it has collected to fall to the earth. Also, if the earths gravity is powerful enough to satellite the moon around it, when the moon is 1,700 miles in diameter why isn't it strong enough to pull in a rock that's only 1,500 feet in diameter and has far less mass? Why Is NASA sending two space crafts to the moon in twin orbit to test the moons gravitational pull?

Grail Mission: [link to erc.ivv.nasa.gov]

2. The Sun will push the Earths magnetic sheild away from the Sun. The Moon will be
traveling thru it, and during the month of November if any Solar Activity is present, the asteroid will be significantly affected. The Asteroid is dragging Ice particles and dust along with it. Ice Particles would be effected by solar activity.


3. Due to the Moon's hot core, it can not
hold a very strong magnetic field. However, due to the size of this asteroid, roughly
the height of the empire state building, and its rapid speed, it's course
heading and speed will be slightly altered and there is a significant possibility
additional energy may be imparted to the asteroids rotational speed thru
electro-magnetic resonance. Kinda like the wind blowing on a pinwheel, the
stonger the gusts the faster the spin.

Without orbital mechanics, and specific facts, and its new course and heading
speed, I would would not hazard a guess what it will do next time it visits us
again. Worst yet, if it is very fragile, it just might break up and afford us
new craters on the moon and earth to look at. However, if it is as round as they
stated, one needs to ask why that is so. How could it evenly collect dust and
ice particles? Clearly it is moving so fast,
and rotating once a day, it is efficient in vaccuuming dust thru out our solar
system. Than that becomes another variable to add to a long list of ifs. The
other is why we didn't see it before 2005, does it show up on the old Mount Palomar
Photographic plates?


I also found that Robert S. McMillan who discovered this thing says that we don't have anything to fear as far as hitting earth goes until 100 years from now. I went to Nasa's JPL and looked at it every date from 2012 to 2140. The only two times it ever comes even close to us is listed below.

april 17th 2021 .028

november 7th 2022 .0366 au

after 2022 I couldn't find a single date it came anywhere near us. So why are they falsely projecting a concern for the future? Could there be concern now?

Why is President Obama issuing a National Emergency broadcast on the very date this thing is flying by? Could there be debris entering our atmosphere? This thing is going right through the earths magnetosphere folks. I'm not a doomer, but this definitely looks like something we should be really looking at.

You are correct. I meant feet. It's a little over 400 meters, between 1,300 and 1,600 feet. Wiki says it's a bit smaller, NASA says it's a bit bigger.

at any rate, I corrected that. Thank you.

NASA Announces Launch Tweetup for GRAIL Moon Mission


NASA will host a two-day launch Tweetup for 150 of its Twitter followers on Sept. 7-8 at the agency's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The Tweetup is expected to culminate in the launch of the twin lunar-bound GRAIL spacecraft aboard a Delta II rocket from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.

The launch window opens at 8:37 a.m. EDT on Sept. 8. The two GRAIL spacecraft will fly in tandem orbits around the moon for several months to measure its gravity field, from its crust to core, in unprecedented detail. The mission also will answer longstanding questions about Earth’s moon and provide scientists with a better understanding of how Earth and other rocky planets in the solar system formed.

There is definite concern that this thing could have an effect on the moon. In fact, this is why NASA labeled it potentially hazardous object.

This is REALLY interesting. They're probably worried about gravitational perturbation. When an object is listed as a Potentially Hazardous Object (PHO) it's due to gravitational perturbation. Perturbation is a term used in astronomy in connection with descriptions of the complex motion of a massive body which is subject to appreciable gravitational effects from more than one other massive body. Sounds to me like our government is worried this thing can be pulled in to us, and by analyzing the moons gravitational field that can better determine whether this thing is going to fly toward earth/moon or not. Thank you so much for posting that. I do believe it directly correlates

well, I know I'll be watching this thing. This is truly a concern no matter how you slice it.

Also, if the earths gravity is powerful enough to satellite the moon around it, when the moon is 1,700 miles in diameter why isn't it strong enough to pull in a rock that's only 1,500 feet in diameter and has far less mass?

That's an answer in itself. If it's going fast enough, there won't be hardly any change in course due to it's LOW MASS

2. The Sun will push the Earths magnetic sheild away from the Sun. The Moon will be
traveling thru it, and during the month of November if any Solar Activity is present, the asteroid will be significantly affected.

That won't really have an effect unless it's a comet and the ice actually jets from it, causing a MINOR change in course.

additional energy may be imparted to the asteroids rotational speed thru
electro-magnetic resonance. Kinda like the wind blowing on a pinwheel, the
stonger the gusts the faster the spin.

The moon does not have a molten core

Without orbital mechanics, and specific facts, and its new course and heading

If there is a course change, it could very well be more aimed AWAY from Earth just as easily more aim AT it... even odds there, but unlikely it will change

I also found that Robert S. McMillan who discovered this thing says that we don't have anything to fear as far as hitting earth goes until 100 years from now. I went to Nasa's JPL and looked at it every date from 2012 to 2140. The only two times it ever comes even close to us is listed below.

Not likely, these guys know what they are doing, we can slingshot Cassini off earth more than once, without any corrections needed other than burn out away from Earth, If I remember right people were in a panic it would hit us and release it's thermo nuclear battery onto us, but nothing happened, they planned it well.

Why is President Obama issuing a National Emergency broadcast on the very date this thing is flying by? Could there be debris entering our atmosphere? This thing is going right through the earths magnetosphere folks. I'm not a doomer, but this definitely looks like something we should be really looking at.

They don't plan a national emergency broadcast in advance... unless it's a hurricane, that JUST now turned towards land etc... How could they plan a broadcast that far out, when there is no emergency in sight?
