COMET YU55: It's the end of the world as we know it thread #2: Nov 9
NASA Jet Propulsion laboratory and YouTube ^ | 10/30/2011 | RaceBannon

Check out this website: http://ssd.jpl.nasa.gov/sbdb.cgi?sstr=2005%20YU55;orb=1;cov=0;log=0;cad=0#orb

you need JAVA installed to view the app

COMET YU55 It is going to cross our orbital path and almost be directly in the same line and path as Earth, right along our orbital plane and orbital location around the Sun right around November 9

People used to freak about that comet Elenin, it misses us by quite a bit, but, YU55 is very close!

Many conspiracy theorists are saying the government is covering this up, that it is the end of the world, Obama knows, that Fema camps are NOT for the NOW but for THIS COMET and a collision with Earth and coffins are being distributed

Here is one of those alarmist videos: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=udmcQq02X0E

There is a language alert for the video

I like watching these for I do NOT believe it is the end of the world, but I am a space buff, it is cool, but to see the JPL site and seeing that YU55 DOES come REAAAALLL Close to us, that is going to be a spectacular light show for a comet, one that you will be able to see with the naked eye and maybe photograph with a camera in the day time, too

Anyone else find the connection between YU55’s flyby date and Obama testing the Emergency Broadcast System on the same day SUSPICIOUS???

Near-Earth asteroid 2005 YU55 will pass within 0.85 lunar distances from the Earth on November 8, 2011. The upcoming close approach by this relatively large 400 meter-sized, C-type asteroid presents an excellent opportunity for synergistic ground-based observations including optical, near infrared and radar data. The attached animated illustration shows the Earth and moon flyby geometry for November 8th and 9th when the object will reach a visual brightness of 11th magnitude and should be easily visible to observers in the northern and southern hemispheres. The closest approach to Earth and the Moon will be respectively 0.00217 AU and 0.00160 AU on 2011 November 8 at 23:28 and November 9 at 07:13 UT.

Since the asteroid will approach the Earth from the sunward direction, it will be a daylight object until the time of closest approach. The best time for new ground-based optical and infrared observations will be late in the day on November 8, after 21:00 hours UT from the eastern Atlantic and western Africa zone. A few hours after its close Earth approach, it will become generally accessible for optical and near-IR observations but will provide a challenging target because of its rapid motion across the sky.

They’re having a nationwide simultaneous test that they haven’t had before. I personally don’t like it but I don’t think its a big deal.

Gosh, you didn’t hear??

from an e-mail I got for a writer for Human Events:

A retired U.S. army intelligence officer told me that this is unprecedented - a complete NATIONAL black-out of ALL broadcast media throughout the country during the daytime. Normally, Emergency Alert System tests are conducted by FCC licensed broadcasters in the dead of night. (Consider: Even following the Kennedy assassination, NOTHING like this was scheduled).

It’s close, and even closer to the moon, but at that velocity, it looks like it would need to be pretty much a direct hit to be a problem. It’s not going to be deflected much by the Earth’s or even the Moon’s gravity.

Here’s a thought though. Comets some times break apart & leave chunks behind. Might be possible to see a chunk visit us.

I worked in radio in the 70s. We did the EBS testing during the day all the time. When the buzzer sounded I would read “This is a test of the emergency broadcast system. This is only a test.” Then I’d play a 15 second beep. Then I’d explain that had this been “an actual emergency” information would have been given as to what to do.

I’ve never heard every radio station doing it at the same time. If that happens, my “conspiracy” radar will go off!

If you look at the second diagram, it appears that it doesn’t actually intersect the Earth’s orbit. It’s skew.

Read this: http://tvtechnology.com/article/125570

"The FCC notes that while state and local EAS tests are conducted weekly and monthly, the Nov. 9 test will be the first “end-to-end test of the nationwide system involving all participants in a synchronized, simultaneous exercise.”"

Stuff that tinfoil hats are made of.

Although classified as a potentially hazardous object, 2005 YU55 poses no threat of an Earth collision over at least the next 100 years.

It's the next sentence that interests me:

However, this will be the closest approach to date by an object this large that we know about in advance and an event of this type will not happen again until 2028 when asteroid (153814) 2001 WN5 will pass to within 0.6 lunar distances.

It's what we DON'T know about in advance that should worry us.

“They” are doing some sort of testing that will supposedly shut down tv and radio broadcasts for 2 minutes. It’s not going to be the normal beeeeeeeeep “this is only a test” thing. It’s even been announced by the msm and on tv as a PSA commercial.

My tin foil hat tells me this is a dry run for Hussein’s October Surprise (or as early as next spring) when he declares himself Grand High Poobah of All the Lands and cancels elections.

“Reports that say that something hasn’t happened are always interesting to me, because as we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns — the ones we don’t know we don’t know.”
