NEO 2006 QV89 - Potencial doom?
Hey guys!

Was reading some local news and crossed with an article about this asteroid.
Any one of you guys that are more prone to the subject could give some input? Is it really dangerous at the moment? It will flyby earth on the September 9th at 8:00 GMT +00 as i read at a slow pace of 44000 kmh (27340.33 mph). As per what i've read the supposed impact will be equal to Siberia 1908 with a destruction radius of 2000 square kms (16988 square miles).
Any relevant info that worth to be shared about this asteroid? Or is it just sensational news?






Cheers,
DracoLX

Well, this one is not an earth killer. Never said that.

No one has relevant data to talk about?

2006 QV89 (also written 2006 QV89) is an Apollo near-Earth asteroid roughly 30 meters (98 feet) in diameter. It was discovered on 29 August 2006 when the asteroid was about 0.03 AU (4,500,000 km; 2,800,000 mi) from Earth and had a solar elongation of 150 degrees. The asteroid has a short 10 day observation arc and has not been detected since 2006. The asteroid is estimated to make a 2019 closest approach to Earth around 23−27 September at a distance of roughly 0.04 AU (6,000,000 km; 3,700,000 mi).[4]
Impact threat

2006 QV89 has a low 1.07° orbital inclination with respect to the Ecliptic plane and an Earth-MOID of only 10200 km.[2] Where Earth will be is known. Where precisely the asteroid will be on its orbit is not. As a short observation arc having not been observed since 2006, the Sentry Risk Table shows an estimated 1 in 9100 chance of the asteroid impacting Earth on 9 September 2019.[3] The nominal JPL Horizons 9 September 2019 Earth distance is 0.05 AU (7,500,000 km; 4,600,000 mi) with a 3-sigma uncertainty of ±10 million km.[5] NEODyS also lists the nominal 9 September 2019 Earth distance as 0.05 AU (7,500,000 km; 4,600,000 mi).[6] The European Space Agency lists the odds of impact at a comparable 1 in 7300 on 9 September 2019.[7]

A Monte Carlo simulation using Solex 12 with 1000 clones of the asteroid shows that the asteroid's possible positions overlap Earth.[8]

The asteroid should come to opposition (opposite the Sun in the sky) around the end of July 2019 at an estimated apparent magnitude of ~22.[6]

"there is a 1-in-7,299 chance that 2006 QV89 will hit the planet"

Less likely things have happened before... gaah
