HUGE ASTEROID TO FLY CLOSELY PAST EARTH
BREAKING NEWS: MSNBC
JUNE 27, 2006
An asteroid possibly as large as a half-mile or more in diameter is rapidly approaching the Earth. There is no need for concern, for no collision is in the offing, but the space rock will make an exceptionally close approach to our planet early on Monday, July 3, passing just beyond the Moon’s average distance from Earth.
Astronomers will attempt to get a more accurate assessment of the asteroid’s size by “pinging” it with radar.
And skywatchers with good telescopes and some experience just might be able to get a glimpse of this cosmic rock as it streaks rapidly past our planet in the wee hours Monday. The closest approach occurs late Sunday for West Coast skywatchers in the United States.

Because, of course, there's a hidden twin asteroid that WILL hit the earth. You have to read between the lines on these press releases. When they say "there's no danger" what it really means is "there's a hidden twin and put some jelly in your pocket because you're about to be toast."

I find it interesting that this date coincides with the date 535 posted earlier, the theme of which is in line with this event.

Pretty spooky actually.

Will there be celestial fireworks on 7/4?

Thats an interesting thought. I wonder if the mass is affected by the velocity of the object. Could an object of this size affect something so large as the moon if it is going fast enough? Maybe it can pull the orbit or something.

Are you so desperate for something to fear?

Everything in the universe affects everything else gravitationally, but asteroids/comets etc. are so small compared with something like the moon that their affect is totally negligible. Look at the moon, it's covered with huge craters - it's been hit by many many huge objects (and certainly just missed by many more) and yet it is still there, orbitting happily away. It will still be there long long after all of us have gone so why spend your time speculating on highly improbable disaster scenarios?

There are more interesting things to ponder than phantom fears. Reality is more fascinating than any pseudo-science.

More likely, because of their size, the asteroid would be affected by the moons gravity.

I dont know the first or next thing about astro physics but had an interesting thought. What if, BIG IF. The gravity of the moon tugged on the asteroid enough for the roid to make a 90* turn around the moon for a direct hit to the earth. Similar to the "Road Runner Thrust Manuever" from the movie Armegeddon.. Hahaha... No probable I dont think, but hey. Strange and foul shit is in the air.
Lessons learned today, are problems prevented tomorrow!

One should not worry about tomorrow when there is plenty to do today!!

Re: HUGE ASTEROID TO FLY CLOSELY PAST EARTH
Thats even more interesting than the original question I posed. Had a dream a few years back and a hugh Comet streaked across the sky and after it had passed by the Earth it turned and came straight at us. Keep in mind that was a dream. But the Moon should be able to effect a small body. It was just a question, not a prediction of Doomsday, afterall theres only one who knows the true EOT (End of Times)

Why is it interesting? Why don't you learn something about real science that will let you know the difference between what happens in dreams and what happens in the real world?

And why are you so keen on the idea that somehow this event could possibly(in your fantasy universe) turn into a Doomsday event? It's like you want it to.

Re: HUGE ASTEROID TO FLY CLOSELY PAST EARTH
I happen to hold a Bachelor of Science degree, thats why I stated it was just a dream. I never said that It was destined to happen. I have read many books on Astronomy and this whole thread is speculation. But hey thats cool dude, I'll keep my dreams to myself. We were just hoping for some fireworks for the 4TH. And if you read my post I stated that this was not a prediction of Doom. Just a little hypothectical conjecture on my part as to whether the small body could have an effect on the Moon. But in retro-spect the Moon would more than likely have an effect on the small body.

hey dumasses this is patrick25 here! I can't login for some reasons. But I am here to tell you that the asteroid WILL HIT US on July 5th. I have tracked and triagulated the path myself yesterday.
im sorry to have lied to you all but i i was being paid good money, now my contract is over.

watch out on the 5th get in your bunkers and listen to the enlightnened ones they know what is going on
