Will it strike my house? That’s all I want to know.

Nasa only observed this within the last 36 hours, so their confidence in their own predictions of the several pieces of it are only 50/50.
It might be of concern to everyone.

Can you keep us up to date? I’m getting all sorts of alarms from the NASA site. hahahaha! I wonder what that’s about.

One piece of this is due at 15:58 UT in 2 minutes from now, and another at 21:22 UT which is 5:58 pm Central Standard Time today.
Who knows how2 many other pieces are coming with it that they haven't sighted.

If you plan on doing an NEA ping list I want to be on it.

When I say NEA I’m not talking about that collectivist, non-teaching union.

You might want to know how big it is, what it's made of, and how close to your house it will hit: play with this fun little program Earth Impact Effects Program (from Imperial College London and Purdue University) to see why.

Let's back up a little: asteroid about to strike the Earth in a number of hours determined by NASA issuing some sort of a release. What form should my "concern" take?

Watch the video in comment #1 because it displays the orbital model you're interested in.

I recommend you follow the poster on youtube in comment #1. That's where I learned about it.

You would do better to totally ignore ANY video from bpearthgrotch, er, watch..

As a source bpearthwatch (and his incessant videos) is a nutcase site that also will tell you about herculobus, niburu, sixteen foot tall aliens living in a cave in Arizona (or is it Nevada - well, it's out there according to this nutcase) and a logical rule of thumb says that if your source is skewed in one area there's a REAL good possibility that it is skewed in most (or all) other areas as well.

A bottle of water that is 'only' half methyl alcohol is still totally lethal...

Your mileage may vary.

For you alarmists out there, you should note that 2014 AW32 entered the Earth-Moon system at 1402 UT - 1102 EST - on 10January 2014. On 10 Jan. 2014 at 21:38 UT - 1638 EST, the near-Earth asteroid 2014 AW32 reached a minimum distance from the Earth of about 190,000 of km, that is just 0.5 lunar distances. No risks at all for our planet... At 0515 UT today (0015 EST - 11January 2014) it departed the Earth-Moon system. That means it was outta here twelve hours before this was posted... (Source for this info is in the links in the original post.. I note that bpearthgroth's video has been removed, but that is no real problem, it was not worth the time, unless you really want to manufacture doomsday scenarios and have another sip of the 'water'...)

Darksheare's coffee is better for you..

live commentary by our scientific staff, starting at 17:30 UT, which is 11:30 AM Central Standard Time today.

Umm... Today is 11 January, 2014.

Please note the following information. Pay close attention to the DATES..

The online, free session is scheduled for 10 Jan. 2014, starting at 17:30 UT.

But you are correct that 1730 UT is 11:30 AM CST...

If you check your own sources you will find this 'event' was over even before you posted this, no matter what your favorite videomonger says..

Again, your mileage may vary, but how about some water?

I mostly want to know if it’s something to pass along to my husband.

The weather is nice and I wouldn’t mind being outside looking through his telescope.

I hide information if I’m able when it is really cold outside!

He had commented that he saw two falling stars at work last night— I’m wondering if it was any part of this.

But here it's been cold... ;-) Not to mention that when the last bunch of meteors passed (Perseids? ) we had cloud cover every night.

There are a LOT of near earth approach objects. If you bothered to watch the bpearthgrotch video, you will note that he makes everything into a 'we're all gonna die' scenario so warn your husband that that particular source is highly questionable..

If there are any chunks of Ison out there we will be going through their path in the next week or so, so there MIGHT be something to watch. (I'm sure some nutcases with a EweToob channel will create a doomsday scenario for us about that too... ;-)

Yeah, you don't warn anybody about anything, do you?
Take a look at this video describing just how close 2012 DA14 came (17,200 mile close at about 17 thousand miles an hour at 130,000 tons) on Feb 15, 2013, from Discovery News.
That was not only between Earth and the Moon, but also between Earth and a fair amount of our communications satellites.

Do you think that Comet 2013 A1 (Siding Spring) , instead of colliding with Mars, on Oct 19 2014, 18:25 could be sling-shotted into a totally different trajectory, like Asteroid 2012 DA14 wsas on Feb 15, 2013 ?

Space is very vast, but it is also full of lots of stuff, not only asteroids and comets and meteorites but our own man made space junk. And we are hit by very small, micro-small asteroids and meteorites every day. There is a lot of stuff out there.

Eventually something “big” will impact the Earth; it has after all happened before. But I’m not about to freak out or fret over this very small possibility. Statistically speaking the chances of an extinction level event happing during our life time is quite small.

And if one day should it happen during my lifetime; I’m going to get a lawn chair, pour me a good strong drink and sit back and watch the “show”. If we were to be impacted by an extinction level event, that’s about the only thing I could do and I’m going to at least enjoy the fireworks and go out with a bang! LOL!

I want to know when we're at risk, and I'm not in a panic mode.
I agree with you on how to meet it, but I believe Revelation 18 and I want to know.
I was in the Science and Space club in high school and space science interest me very much, even in my older years.

If you are not in a panic mode, then why post all these hysterical apocalyptic and highly unscientific videos from BPEarthwatch? There are many reputable astronomy sites that track near Earth objects without all the drama and hyperbole and totally unnecessary apocalyptic warnings. I think you are more into “Disaster Porn”; seemingly hoping and wishing for a disaster and the end of all life as we know it because it fits in with your beliefs in Revelations, than you are into the actual science.

I was in the Science and Space club in high school and space science interest me very much, even in my older years.

I too have always been interested in science and particularly in astronomy since I watched all the Gemini and Apollo space missions as a kid, but now at 53 years old, I do try to keep up with current scientific findings. I don’t find BPEarthwatch as a source for furthering that knowledge.

Hysterical ?
That's not the way I read him.

Highly unscientific ?
His sources and orbital models look valid to me, as most are from JPL and NASA (which after Obama's poisoning of their organization, I take with a grain of salt).

I believe there's something else motivating your dislike of him, but I don't buy the "niburu" stuff.
And I haven't seen any of the "herculobus" (whatever the hell that's suppose to be)and "sixteen foot tall aliens living in a cave" he's been accused of.
And no one's provided a link to those allegations, either.
So as far as I'm concerned, BPEarthWatch is at least watching and trying to warn people and make them aware of what's coming.
But these others that are sniping him, I don't even know if they're atheists or not, so I haven't seen any proof of their so-called credentials.

Everyone else here on Free Republic is too scared to post any kind of information at all about the current meteorite/asteroid threats.

Yes, that's about my attitude as well. If it was confirmed that an extinction-level event was to occur due to asteroid striking the Earth, I would do pretty much as you would do. I'd sit out in my backyard with a bottle of the best scotch I can buy and go out with a little style and dignity.

I won't be one of those hysterical people jamming up the Interstate highway system with an SUV full of blankets and bottled water.

Asteroids have been zooming right past, as well as making impacts on the surfaces of the Earth and Moon, since each body began existence.

100 percent of the Nibiru stuff is nuttery.

> Yeah, you don’t warn anybody about anything, do you?

Since you posted this half a day after the space rock had already MISSED the EARTH, it’s clear that YOU don’t, lose the attitude.
