According to NASA, a aircraft carrier sized asteroid called Asteroid 2005 YU55, will fly by Earth on Nov 8. YU55 is apparently bigger than what most people might comprehend. Most of the population might not realize how big a aircraft carrier is and psychologically think it is the size of a large plane. As space.com puts it “a veritable mini-world roughly 1,300 feet (400 meters) wide — nearly four football fields across.” Four football fields is roughly the same size as a aircraft carrier. Therefore, four football fields, sounds more significant to me. It will come a bit closer to Earth than the Moon’s proximity to Earth. It will zoom by Earth inside the orbit of the moon. This near earth asteroid won’t be a extinction level event, but for the so called “ I love to debunk everything with science – types” – I am “the common sense and spiritual – off the planet type.” The moon and other celestial bodies affects Earth, therefore this near Earth flying, nearly four football fields, aircraft carrier-sized, giant – space rock, must have some minor effect on Earth. Can I say unusual weather, storms, and other events. Stay tuned and watch the sky.
In any case, this is another wake up call and one of many preludes for Earth and its lets put our heads in the sand two legged creatures. Our four legged creatures are more in tuned. Wake up and watch the sky. Strap on you seatbelts, 2012 is coming.
