Astroid to Come REALLY Close to Earth This November.

That out of focus 'grey thing' in the above photo is a slow-rotating 1,300 foot diameter astroid heading our way... 
Scientists have been monitoring its trajectory for the past six years and estimate it to come very close to Earth on November 8th, 2011. Don't call Bruce Willis and his Roughnecks just yet... this 'potentially hazardous astroid', Astroid 2005 YU55, does not pose a direct risk in hitting us at all. In fact scientists are more excited than scared and currently prepping to get a better look at this hurling rock as it zips by at a distance of .085 lunar distances (203,027.352 miles).... in the scheme of the universe - that is REALLY close...!! 
Extensive plans are being laid to radar image the slow-rotating hell out the rock as it passes, possibly down to resolutions nearing just 15 feet. That will help them build better 3-D models of YU55, as well as project its density and shape.
The good news for the rest of us: increased knowledge of the rock’s spin rate, shape, density, etc. will also improve researchers’ modeling of its whereabouts when it’s not around, enabling better prediction models stretching for decades or even centuries. That way should YU55 come around again we’ll perhaps have a more precise idea of its path, and a better than six-year heads-up.

How many Satellites will this one take out.

Do a little History on this one.

ALL Should Look Up "2012 DA14".

This could take out one of more satellites and the junk and debris from the hit could end up taking out many more satellites very soon after that. All the satellite collision probability will go way up if even one is hit. The velocity that the parts would go to would make them missiles that would start targeting a chain reaction this would not be good.

Most all will be watching this one and pray it goes by us with out a hit. Every Scientist alive will be watching this event. Many will be in Florida for a very special viewing of the once in a Lifetime Event. Professors, Scientist, World Leaders, Ham Radio Operators and Every Astronomer will have its eyes on This Event, along with almost every TV set on Earth.

"2012 DA14" goes by Earth twice a year and there is no way anyone for sure can tell how close the second pass will be till it passes by the Moon and Earth and the GRAVITATIONAL FORCE effect that it will have on this Asteroid. They may come close but this one is already coming very close to begin with. Too close this time or on its second or 3rd pass? Ad a Meteor Shower, it might go through or bump into one of them? Or all the other orbital debris like Spent Rocket Boosters left in space that can no longer be moved by a control center on Earth.

If a big enough one were to slam into the moon in the night sky you would think the sun was coming up early only it would be 5 to 7 times as bright. From The Sun's Rays Reflection on all the Debris Field.

While you still can,
and May our Lord GOD Bless all that do so.
