Feburary 15-th , an asteroid will cruse between the Earth and Moon ! Some 1400-1600 miles from our planet ! I will be out there looking !..............:wow:

Link for a source? That seems too close, like it would do some bad things to Earth. But then again, I am no cosmologist.

Considering that geosynchronous satellites orbit about 24,000 miles above the surface of the Earth, yeah that seems pretty damn close.

That's right and exactly what it means "With-in Satellite orbit radii !
The scale of said Asteroid is approximately the size of perhaps two Rail-road box cars , so not very large .

To even see it is suggested very good binocs or telescope is needed .

If one that size hits earth, it would certainly be catostrophic.

The impact sight near Winslow, AZ was created 50,000 years ago by a similar sized meteorite. It is estimated to have impacted at 13 meters/second or 28,000 mph. The crater is 3/4 of a mile across and 570 ft deep.
If you see it coming, duck and cover.

The whole planet? No. But, one 5-10m, will produce an explosion similar to the bomb dropped on Hiroshima. And were talking 45m? That would be catastrophic for many miles from the center. I wouldn't want to be in the same state.

But yes I understand what a tsunami is, I also understand this asteroid is smaller than either the Barringer or Tunguska rocks.

Well , lets take your average granite rock of the same size.

Weight-Possibly 25,000 lbs. "Only guessing"..!

Asteroid.weight:-possibility of density , 10-100 x,s more weight,again, only guessing here , Traveling 100 x,s (again,only guessing) the velocity of any know Bullet , (Projectile) , does sound a tad ominous to me ?....:dunno:

Depends on what it's made of, but 25,000 lbs sounds like it could be off by an order of magnitude or two!

Not any worse than a 10mm discharge.

I think the Earth would suck it right up. It would not be 45m across by the time it hit the ground anyway.

Regardless, I say we shoot at it and see if we can hit it as practice for a possible larger rock in the future.

Some of these things travel 40+ kilometers/sec. Space has only one speed limit

C

186K miles per second.

Anything within there and zero is possible.

I saw a meteor during late afternoon one time. Really just a steak of bright light ripped across the sky. Fastest thing I've ever seen including that blonde that lived.............

don't need to go there.

Back around 1982 I got home from work late at night. This was back when I lived with my parents and was going to college and working as a bartender at night. Maybe 2 AM. Was taking a nice pee out in the back yard before going to bed and saw something high and to my right. I looked up and saw a green streak of light coming very fast right to left (east to west), and it looked to be pretty low. Then it broke into a few pieces and I heard small sonic booms and then what sounded like impact sounds perhaps 2 miles away.

I went to bed and never heard anything about it. For all I know I was the only one who saw the dang thing.

I don't know if they can come in slower, but all of the meteor showers I have seen, they have streaked across the sky and were gone in a fraction of a second.

It is really something to experience, kind of like peering down into the grand canyon for the first time. I have seen 5 or 6 that came in SLOW, broke apart, 2 actually fell below the horizon/treeline...... I wish I had videos. I camp out in remote places allot and I always stay up for meteor showers.

Well, I'm not sure of the size of the object that caused the massive damage in the Tunguska event, but a hit in a city of an object of the size under discussion would likely remove the city from the surface of the planet. Fortunately, ain't gonna happen this time around.
