The asteroid 2014 HQ124, which is the size of a football stadium, poses no chance of hitting Earth in its flyby on Sunday (June 8), and will pass by at a range of three times the distance between the Earth-moon on Sunday (June 8). It was discovered on April 23 by NASA's Wide-Field Infrared Survey Explorer, a sky-mapping space telescope.
This afternoon, the online Slooh community observatory will host a live webcast preview of asteroid 2014 HQ124, beginning at 2:30 p.m. EDT (11:30 a.m. PDT/1830 GMT) at its website: http://www.slooh.com. You can also watch the asteroid 2014 HQ124 webcast on Space.com, courtesy of Slooh. The webcast will feature a discussion with Slooh astronomer Bob Berman, host Geoff Fox and asteroid impact expert Mark Boslough.
I think soon, "but not yet" as the guy in Gladiator said. Won't be here when it hits.
Oh well I guess if it changes course and hits us we are all dead oh MY.
If it would have hit you can bet that Obama, Pelosie and Reid would have blamed Boooosh!
I hope they get some good pics of it
Quick poll: If it hit DC, would you cheer?
None of the above...
If a meteor the size of a football stadium hit DC, I’d be too close to ground zero to cheer.
Well, a year ago when I lived in VA, probably not.
The Obamacrats would create a new bureaucracy to deal with the man-made causes of asteroid threats.
Well it was posted here earlier that over some billion years ago an asteroid collided with earth and a chunk of earth broke off that became to moon. If did it once maybe it could happen again.
So there should be petrified earth fossils somewhere on the moon?
