Asteroid 2014 DX110
Earth is in for a close call today and for roughly the next week as we sweep into a debris field left over by I think Comet ISON. The one people thought may hit, and nearly did. This one they say will pass between Earth and our Moon and nearer to the Earth. The area it “COULD” hit is below, as you can see, half water. There is a live link video that will come on at the time. At present it is just a count down clock. But keep it in mind. 3pm USA/EST time, 9pm UK time
Asteroid 2014 DX110 is set to fly between the Earth and the moon Wednesday. Slooh Space Camera will broadcast the flyby live starting at 4 p.m. EST on March 5. Paul Cox, Slooh’s technical and research director, is set to narrate the live stream as the asteroid makes an extremely close pass by Earth. Researchers estimate that DX110 will follow a path that puts it within one lunar distance from the planet. But,there’s no need to worry: As Universe Today reported, the asteroid will be about 216,000 miles away from our planet and is not expected to come in contact with either the Earth or the moon. The asteroid was first spotted on Feb. 28 and measures about 25 meters (82 feet) in diameter. After passing between the Earth and moon Wednesday, the space rock is expected to return and make another flyby in March 2046. NASA predicts the object will have a 1 in 10,000,000 chance of impacting the planet then. DX110 is one of the closest asteroids to approach Earth in recent months. Though asteroids pass by Earth regularly, most do not come within one lunar distance of the planet. Watch Slooh’s live broadcast of asteroid 2014 DX110′s close shave in the video above, and see the path the asteroid is expected to take in the animation below.
If it hits, it hits here
Earth is passing through a new debris field starting today
