X-Flare Will large earth directed CME disturb Yu55 orbit
Okay I know this has been posted before, but we are still waiting for somebody that might know, to respond.

Sunspot 1339 just spit out an X flare. Though it is not yet completely earth facing, it is moving into that position. What if it shoots off another X flare resulting in a large earth directed CME? Does it break yu55 apart? Change it`s course?

What do you think experts? We are waiting.

Fine. I will just write in my own answer, even though I don`t have a clue.

As I understand it, a CME is what is responsible for breaking up Comet Elenin, so stands to reason that a strong earth directed CME could due some damage to a little asteroid like Yu55.

Basically the flare will ignite the meteor and cause it to flare 5x it's size, which will then put it off course into earth.

What do you say ASTROMUT? Always interested to here your take, although still not sure how to take you. Spin, or truth?

Okay. Lets say it does. How do we know it won`t cause it to hit the moon instead?

Re: X-Flare Will large earth directed CME disturb Yu55 orbit
I guess nobody wants to click on anymore Elenin or yu55 threads. Makes sense because every one I see anymore I just laugh at, and move on.
Only problem is, maybe the one we quit worring about, is the one to fear.
Whatever.

Heads up.

INCOMING!!!!!!!

Space weather site is now saying YU55 is 200m wide. What happened to 400m?

Funny because it was 175m, then last week 400m, and now cut in half again?
Has anyone heard if it will be visible to the naked eye? I have heard seeing it will be a short window, since it is coming from the direction of the sun.

Only one reason why I am worried about this one. To close to 11/11/11. Have been seeing that number way too much to rule it out as not being a possible relationship to the date.

Full moon, and a clear sky. Could make for some great memories to tell the grandchildren.
