JPL changed the close approach date to the 9th now in the orbit diagram.

Yu55 is now a condition code 1 was a 2 this morning so no doom?

Thanks for running the data OP. Interesting results.

You think NASA would tell us the truth IF a big rock was calculated to hit the Earth. I sure as hell don't. Think about the mass panic.
 Quoting: N3m3s1s


I believe if an asteroid was to impact Earth - they'd keep it quiet and let it hit because they are such sadistic bastards who want to inflict mass genocides:

Rahm Emanuel: "You never want a serious crisis to go to waste"

If it collides in the ocean they'll probably say it was something BS "like an underground earthquake caused the massive tsunamis" and silence all the whistle blowers who say it was an asteroid.

If it hits a city, well...good luck on covering that one up.

What this guy doesn't know is that it is 3900 miles from the earths center, not the earths surface. That is about a 99% probability it will hit the earth. Get ready mankind, you are too receive a severe punishment from God, this is the first of a series that occurs very soon.

Okay, look, you idiots. He assumes that the distance from the object to the Earth is linear, because their trajectories can be approximated by linear functions. This is stupid. Consider a straight line going by a point. The distance from the line to the point gets smaller and smaller, but it slows down. Eventually the distance from the line to the point isn't even changing! AND THEN THE OBJECT GETS FARTHER AWAY.

Notwithstanding the assumption that the trajectories are linear, this analysis ASSUMES THE OBJECT PASSES THROUGH THE CENTER OF THE EARTH. Otherwise the assumption that the distance is a linear function of time is bunkum.

Please stop believing this shit. If you use a model that assumes linear trajectories and modifies the data so that a best fit line fits a straight trajectory past Earth, not only does the Earth stay at the distance claimed from the Earth, but the regression fits, with an r^2=0.99997. The data from JPL shows approach speed decaying much faster BECAUSE THE OBJECT IS NOT GOING TO HIT THE EARTH.

GET THIS PEOPLE! WHEN MEASURING THE DISTANCE BETWEEN TWO HEAVENLY BODIES, THE MEASUREMENTS ARE MADE FROM THE MIDDLE OF ONE BODY TO THE MIDDLE OF THE OTHER BODY. OP CALCULATES A DISTANCE FROM THE EARTH TO YU55 AS 3904 MILES, CENTER TO CENTER. THE DIAMETER OF THE EARTH IS 7923 MILES. IF YOU TAKE 1/2 OF THE EARTH'S DIAMETER WHICH IS EQUAL TO 3861 MILES (THE DISTANCE FROM THE CENTER TO THE EDGE) AND 1/2 OF THE DIAMETER OF YU55 WHICH IS EQUAL TO 650 FEET OR APPROX. 1/9 OF A MILE, THEN YOU BASICALLY HAVE A MISS DISTANCE OF 43 FEET. FACTOR IN ATMOSPHERIC DRAG, AND YOU HAVE IMPACT PEOPLE! IMPACT!

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 4933387

Actually we first figured the moon's gravity by examining how it affected the motion of the earth, by measuring how far away the earth-moon barycenter is from the center of the earth. That's been known for a long, long time now. Try to keep up.
And the JPL sim shows the passage while the moon skims a couple of way too many degrees????
 Quoting: AC

A couple of way too many degrees? What is that even supposed to mean? There's nothing wrong with the moon's motion in the JPL sim, in fact it looks almost exactly like my sim.
