Surprised nobody had posted this yet? The whole reason I thought you guys visited this site was to be ready when something like this happened... hiding

So apparently its passed us but not outside of the minimum pull threshold - gravity whiplash, so to speak.

Currently it is heading on its orbit back towards Earth, and should be visible in the morning sky within a few hours flying over the East Coast of America.

I wish all my brothers and sisters out there the best of luck.

One of your pages was not available, and the others did not support your claim.

No, it didn't, and no, it's not.
