Two Asteroid Earth Flybys this week.
This week the buzz is about a newly discovered asteroid about 100ft long narrowly missing the Earth. It whizzed by close. Half the distance of the Moon’s orbit. This coincides with another known close asteroid passing by named Toutatis (“The Sky is Falling Asteroid”). What’s more a new meteor shower is being predicted this week to occur radiating out of Pisces during the same time as the annual Geminid meteor shower. The prediction is that we should see about 130 shooing stars an hour on the night of Dec 13th and 14th.
Doomsday Predictions: Here They Come!
This surprise asteroid discovery did not give us much of a warning to see it pass by and could have been on a collision course. The doomsayers are saying that this is just the first of many that will arrive on the last day of the Mayan Calendar date of 12/21/12. Coincidence?
Enjoy the meteor shower show and don’t worry be happy.
