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???
Hey, that’s my Dad’s 87th birthday. :)
countdown to xot.
Aww crap. LOL
End of the world?
Then we needn’t worry about anything FEMA is up to.
In the video link, the guy says that it is NOT the NWO that FEMA is buying coffins for, but this comet and it’s impact!
The EBS is tested all the time. Where did you hear that “obama is going to test it”?
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.
“Although classified as a potentially hazardous object, 2005 YU55 poses no threat of an Earth collision over at least the next 100 years”
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.
Maybe Beck will be free that day!
Another day another comet collision story
All the idiots agonizing over AGW, I worry about close-shavers and the atmosphere. You can’t tell me a galactic .50cal nearly grazing the earth doesn’t have any impact on it.
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).
Here we go again!
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.
regarding your link...
hey, it could happen! :)
I don’t find it suspicious... Just stupid that they chose that day. But that’s par for the course with this Administration.
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!
Might be possible to see a chunk visit us.
if it’s HALE-BOPP, isn’t that the oen where those cultists all drugged themselves to sleep so they could thumb a ride?? Like Obama voters wish?
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.
“We give them money but are they grateful...?”
That picture needs a don martin sound effect caption ;)
The Age of Thundarr the Barbarian in nigh!
And the day just gets worse:
Concerns Are Raised about Genetically Engineered Mosquitoes
Are you sure they didn’t say End-of-the-World test.... 8-0
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.
Rumsfeld was right.
“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.
Love that book. A bit too trite at times, but a pretty good description of how "the world as we know it" could end IMHO.
Too bad Art bell has retired.
UNCONSTITUTIONAL: Obama Regime To Cut Off All TV & Radio Broadcasts On November 9th, 2011
Ok, so the end of the world didn’t end again the other day or a few months ago. Neither satellite or their space junk landed on my head. Are my odds getting worse now that this comet’s chunks might head this way? The sky really is falling!!!!
“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.”
