A lot closer then the estimate btw
If you are talking about 2012 DA14 would you care to show us your observational data and calculations which led you to this conclusion? This object is being tracked by astronomers (both amateur and professional) all around the world and they don't seem to have a problem with the calculated orbital path of this object, so I'd be interested to find out what it is you know that they don't.

Personally I choose to do my thinking with my brain.

It almost certainly is coincidental that these two events occured on the same day. As there seems to be a fair amount of footage of this object then it should be possible to determine which direction it entered the Earth's atmosphere from and so it will be possible to know for sure whether there is any connection between this event and asteroid 2012 DA14.

didnt claim it was the meteor once did I ? Coincidence or a piece of. Yeah your right the data will tell us but its not there today....So I go back to what does your gut tell you. But I get you. Empirical evidence is better despite what damage a precursor unbeknownst to the public might have nearly impacted us.

As for closer then AD&*^^&$&^ what they said those pieces of meteorite were damn close end of story.

All due respect Waspie as I respect your opinion and links on these subjects.

That sure is impressive stuff. That would fair scare the living daylights out of you. Gee if that was checked by Project Bluebook or similar, it would have definately have been 'confirmed' as a helicopter or weather balloon!

I read somewhere once that the amount of paid people actually dedicated (outside of the military) to watching the skies for approaching meteors, asteroids or 'chunks' was less than the staff of a McDonalds.

Because most meteors are so small, they remain unlit by the sun and we only realise they are here when they hit the atmosphere and burn up as at certain sizes they are fair impossible to spot.

Impressive footage.

Yes this is real,like i have said we humans now days have some kind of built in "nothing can harm us without someone knowing first complex" our universe can put a real kick in the ass to us anytime it wants.

"If it is not advantageous,do not move.If objectives can not be attained,do not employ the army.Unless endangered do not engage in warfare.The ruler cannot mobilize the army out of personal anger.The general can not engage in battle because of personal frustration.When it is advantageous,move;when not advantageous,stop.Anger can revert to happiness,annoyance can revert to joy,but a vanquished state cannot be revived,the dead cannot be brought back to life."

I wonder how big that thing was. It looked a reasonable size. I have to say that footage seriously shocked me

Pretty amazing.

Gives you an idea of what a direct hit would/could do.

<- Not sure if that will work. Not used to adding youtube links.




Sorry didn't see the post from earlier. This can be deleted or merged or whatever it is that the mods do :tu:

as far as coincidences go its a pretty good one that we should have this meteor and the near earth asteroid on the same day. question's for me is, if i have this right, the Russian meteor is made from Ice/Dirt. where the Near Earth Asteroid 2012DA14 is rock/metals. dont these two bodies originate from different parts of the solar system?  < if i have it right could it still be possible the two have interacted at some point on the journey from the outer solar system to the inner solar system? stranger things have happened. it'll be interesting to find out.

That must be a scary experience.  Fire in the sky and glass exploding everywhere.  Hope no-one was seriously injured or killed.

I got some of that but most of it did not make sense. Anyway the link posted by Dot shows how many meteors hit Earth every day
