The Official Astroid YU55 Posting
As Comet Elenin neared Earth, many of us were concerned. We breathed a sigh of relief when nothing happened. However, we may need to look again. Astroid Yu55 is now moving towards Earth, and will be much closer than Comet Elenin.
FEMA and NASA have been sending out preparedness flyers for months now. FEMA will be conducting a test November 9th. The test will interrupt all TV/rado broadcasts, and will test the national emergency system. The test is supposed to last approx. 3 1/2 mins. They have been talking about the test for several months now, and attempting to inform people about it.
Astroid YU55 will travel between Earth and the moon on November 8th and 9th. It will be closest to Earth November 8th at 11:23 PM GMT/UT. It will be .85 lunar distances from Earth (the moon is typically 356400 to 406,700 km from Earth depending on orbit), or .00217 AU. If you multiply 356400 times .85, you will see that it will be about 302940 km from Eath. At Elenin's closest on October 17th, it was .232AU Earth. As you can see, Astroid YU55 will be MUCH closer than Elenin ever was.
I am saying of all this to suggest that the test on November 9th may turn out to be more than just a test. They may be preparing incase there is a genuine emergency. I would suggest that on this particular day you and your family try to stay together. If you have to go to work then at least kept a cell phone close by and have a plan of meeting your family somwhere in case of a real emergency.
I believe that we are entering into the prophetic time of the Great Tribulation. From wickedness, to the economy, to one world currency, to war, to famine, to chaos, everything is happening just as the Bible said it would. My prayer is that you would come to know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior before it's too late. Don't forsake Him. He died for you on the cross. All you have to do is ask Him into your heart. May God bless you, keep you, cause His face to shine upon you, and give you peace. Amen!

Re: The Official Astroid YU55 Posting
There was a thread talking about YU55 and it's tragectory earlier this week. AstoMutt posted that he had calculated YU55's path and felt that YU55 would not post a danger to Earth or the moon.. So I'm thinking it's probably wise to be aware of what's happening, but there is little chance of earth being affected by YU55.

I hope you're right, but the government seems to be very concerned with astroid YU55. I think it's just too much of a coincedence that they are running a national emergency test on the day it's supposed to be closest to Earth.

An act of God is not too far-fetched, considering Revalation talks about God pouring out his judgment upon the Earth. It talks about stars, and fire falling from the sky, and men hiding in caves and wanting to die.....coincedence?

Since God is all-powerful only those He wants to die will die, and all of those He wants to die will die, and no one He doesn't want to die will die.
You can not change that.

You are all assuming that NASA is divulging ALL info on asteroids that are coming near the Earth.
What if YU55 is just one of a group of asteroids that will come close to Earth during the period...9 - 11 November?

And one....or several of the others will hit the Earth....they may have a low albedo, (Light reflective strength) and are difficult to spot visually.
The only group that I know of with deep space radar ability that could track these objects without depending on their light reflective quality....is the USAF....and they won't divulge that kind of data to the general public without authorisation from the bigshots!

YU55 may be seen by the authorities as a kind of safe flag - a diversion....right up to....maybe the Emergency broadcast on the 9th of November....when we get to hear about the 'true' data?

YU55 was discovered with 90 cm telescope operated by the University of Arizona, the observer reported it to the MPC.
Like all other MPC subscriber NASA got the news in an email.

How is NASA going to keep the guy with the 1.2 m telescope in South Africa, the guy with the 2 m telescope in India, and girl with the 6 m telescope in Russia, from reporting their findings.

NASA doesn't own the sky, everybody can watch.

I agree, we aren't talking aerodynamics involving weight and drag from surface area however, forces such as that of elecro-magnetic, such as excitment of electrons or centrifugal forces aka. "gravitational slingshots" do though.

Look at the following clip at 2:24 and look at the "fly-by" of Yu55, would the mass of the Moon have a gravitational pull that would pull the asteroid into Earth?

[link to www.youtube.com]

These would dependant on the objects physical characteristics such as density and mineral composition.

And when i posed the question before it was relating to the question of the affect of the tides on earth, resulting from gravitational constant interaction with the moon when Yu55 passes. It was not about the unique physical properties changing on "fly-by".

I think you are missing the point, it's not about an asteroid (Yu55)impacting Earth, it's about the gravitational effects the interaction will have in relation to the Moon in its passing. An example would be on tidal action.

On a side note if you going to tell me to use links such as you provided in your example and go into topic of orbital mechanics, practise what you preach and start sourcing some of the theroetical and practical aspects. I ask this is so I can better understand the significance in properties and dynamics in what you are tryng to convey. If you wish, I will do the same.

Re: The Official Astroid YU55 Posting
our, and i use the word loosely, govt. decided long ago not to inform the public about any thing that would impact earth until just days before impact. ohbummer changed that to 1 day.
since then only the dummies rely on govt. sites, like nasa, for info.
we all have the freedom to think, that is unless you are a freeloading liberal and only forward ohbummers thoughts.
at least following these conspiracy thoerists gives us a little warning, even if they aren't right all the time, and we can get prepared.

An act of God is not too far-fetched, considering Revalation talks about God pouring out his judgment upon the Earth.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1505901

One village at the time?

It's a 400 metre rock, rather miserly judgement if you ask me.

God is by definition all-powerful, no need to pre-position the ammo.
He can create it at will where and when he wants.

And why are you warning people anyway?
Since God is all-powerful only those He wants to die will die, and all of those He wants to die will die, and no one He doesn't want to die will die.
You can not change that.

Sorry to throw logic at you, I know it's not a fair fight.

Sorry to correct you. The Bible says to spread the word. We are commanded to go and tell everyone what God has done for us, and to be prepared for Christ's return like a pure bride awaiting her groom. The church is the bride that Jesus speaks of, and we are to tell everyone, so that we can prepare our hearts and be holy and pure when that day comes. That is why I am warning people. If I can keep one person from having Hell as their eternal home, then it was worth it.

It talks about stars, and fire falling from the sky, and men hiding in caves and wanting to die.....coincedence?

Sounds pretty typical for doom fiction.
John gets a lot more imaginative when the monster shows up.

Are you aware that this baby swings by Earth every other year?
And that we haven't found all of these rocks yet?
This fly-by just isn't very unique.

 Quoting: Halcyon Dayz, FCD


As far as this being typical, please observe some of the links that others have posted on this forum. Everything is exceptionally unique about this siutation. The main thing aside from the astroid's physical feature and proximity to Earth would be the precations that NASA, FEMA, and the U.S. government are taking. Please read into this before saying it's nothing!

No one can be certain of anything. They may "predict" certain things to be at certain distances. Doesn't mean it will turn out that way, that's why it's called a prediction or an estimate and not a guarantee. If I were God, I'd make it hit just to smite the scientist know-it-all's.

Don't be silly.

"Barring Acts of God" always is the implied caveat.

And a literal Act of God is pretty much what it would take to translate this rock 325,000 km closer to Earth in just 10 days.

Interesting link but what should we be looking at?

Relevance to the rock in space?
book
 Quoting: Halcyon Dayz, FCD


Relevance = if rotation changed significantly, what's to say JPL orbit diagram's supplied are upto date and accurate?

If Earth is a constant gravitational "tug" interaction with the Moon, which has an influence on Earth tides, what would the effect of having Yu55 interacting inbetween the two result in? By asking this, I refer more to the asteroid's potential interferance with the "tug" interaction aspect, more than the influence of its physical mass itself.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1345673


That is an EXCELLENT question! Even if there is not a "direct hit", the gravitational "tug" could still possibly be affected. If we look back, there were tsunamis and earthquakes on days of Elenin's alignment. Although it did not physically impact Earth, the gravitational tug interaction had an effect. This will be much closer to Earth than Elenin, and could therefore have an even bigger effect. Great point!

Re: The Official Astroid YU55 Posting
You are all assuming that NASA is divulging ALL info on asteroids that are coming near the Earth.
What if YU55 is just one of a group of asteroids that will come close to Earth during the period...9 - 11 November?

And one....or several of the others will hit the Earth....they may have a low albedo, (Light reflective strength) and are difficult to spot visually.
The only group that I know of with deep space radar ability that could track these objects without depending on their light reflective quality....is the USAF....and they won't divulge that kind of data to the general public without authorisation from the bigshots!

YU55 may be seen by the authorities as a kind of safe flag - a diversion....right up to....maybe the Emergency broadcast on the 9th of November....when we get to hear about the 'true' data?

Good point! I agree with that as well. It's easy (especially for Americans) to assume that NASA and the govt. tell us everything. We have been taught to look to them for answers. These leaders also claim to be forthcoming and trustworthy. While I'm not saying they intentionally lie, they may be trying to avoid mass panic, and want the time and privacy to come up with a protective plan without our interference. Astroid YU55 could very well have "friends" coming along with it. And you're right, the USAF would never reveal such information.
