    Meteors, Asteroids and other space debris fly by earth daily. This one is just being announced because of it's enormous size. I mean you can't really miss something that's 6km flying around in our atmousphere.

    Time for Bush to watch armeggedon to get some idea's lol

    You do know a lot of meteors actually do come but most of them get broken up the Earth's atmosphere and since they are coming at fast speeds, heat breaks them apart as well.

    That's 0.000022222%.

    If I were to put that figure into a game, it's nearly impossible to get an item.

    Sounds abit difficult for that meteor to touch Earth. =/


    And April 13????

    IT's Friday the 13rd????

    That automatically raises the odds to 99.9%.

    *nukes*

    "well ***** the shards are all now falling towards earth, were ****ed."
    nuking and everything isn't going to destroy it, the only way we can do it is by moving the asteroid out of the way by bombing it so it flys another direction or so it misses earth by a little.

    but within 1000 years when we get the technology strong enough to destroy the asteroids, the small shards wont even hit earth, it will burn up in the atmosphere before it reaches the surface.

    those are small enough asteroids. we're talking about one that is too big to burn all up in the atmosphere

    Hoping gravity doesn't pull it towards us.


    It's funny how people fear it hits earth.I,for one,fear it hits the moon.What'll happen to our weather?!

    Mayians predicted the earth would end in 2012.But in which sources?We could speculate Jesus talked to a god for once but Mayians had diferent ways of religion.
    They did predict the world's end but did they predict they're end?Have you seen the document it was incripted,with your own eyes?It could had been a rumour launched by some idiot.
    Don't fear it guys.I'll believe it when,according to the bible,in 2008 there'll be an earthquake in San Fransisco.

    Anyways. I remember seeing something like that Nostradamus dude predicted that a meteor would hit us in 2013 or something like that. It could be true. He predicted an event that is similar to 9/11 and the date he's coffin would be raided which turned out to be true as well.

    that would be Nosferatu, i got those two mixed up as well. thanks for mentioning Nostramaus though, i was wondering what his name was.

    on topic: when you mean the meteor is visible to the naked eye, do you mean it looks like a star cause theres this star thats been in the sky for a while now...

    Projecting the orbit of the asteroid into the future, astron****s had calculated that the odds of it hitting the Earth in 2029 were alarming. As more observations came in, the odds got higher.

    edited again

    Apophis asteroid was placed at four out of 10 on the Torino scale - a measure of the threat posed by an NEO where 10 is a certain collision which could cause a global catastrophe. This was the highest of any asteroid in recorded history and it had a 1 in 37 chance of hitting the Earth. The threat of a collision in 2029 was eventually ruled out at the end of last year.
