A newfound asteroid gave Earth a close shave early today, zipping between our planet and the moon just two days after astronomers first spotted it.
The near-Earth asteroid 2012 XE54, which was discovered Sunday, came within 140,000 miles (230,000 kilometers) of our planet at about 5 a.m. EST Tuesday, researchers said. For comparison, the moon orbits Earth at an average distance of 240,000 miles or so (386,000 km).
What were the Mayans sayin' about the 21st?
Was this a warning shot?
Just because I feel like speculating....in the "video" of the flyby, there's an object in the upper left quadrant of the image that is visible in one of the frames and not in the other two!
Maybe they're dyslexic.
Not worried. Even if it takes a turn toward us, we have Bruce Willis on our side.
I wondered why the hairs on my neck were standing up this morning...

New found? I thought they knew everything about everything out there. So basically we could be hit at any moment and may not even know it is coming?
Please don't speculate.
It's too bad this wasn't discovered much earlier. Would have been a great opportunity for NASA to send a probe.
If it was, we'd be the last to know. Government wouldn't tell anybody until the very end in order to avoid chaos.
It happened last night at 5am. I sure didn't know about it until I read this thread.
Obvi a disguised spaceship, gonna need The Fresh Prince and Goldblum.
It has been out there on the web for a few days.
and truthfully, do any of us really need to know?
Meh, 120 feet wide. MAC level asteroid.

huh.....guess I've been living under a rock. My bad, this was the first I had seen of it.
You bet. I'd be eating filet mignon ever night, drinking like a fish, and banging broads bareback right up until the end. The sooner I know, the more fun I can have.
I wouldn't mind spending time with my family instead of sitting behind a desk waiting for the end of the world. But I suppose that is selfish of me to not want to work and enjoy my last few days of life. Far be it from me to decide how I would want to finish things in this world, better that only a few people know and can take advantage.
Would have been exciting if it would have hit. End of the world discussion would be much cooler

If everyone knew, we wouldn't need to worry about the asteroid due to the chaos and destruction caused by everyone living it up.
you can do all that now. Just imagine the end of the world is about to happen and maybe you'll find happiness...or wake up 300 lbs, suffering from liver disease, and dick that burns when you pee.
