Asteroid 2012 DA14 will be closest to Earth on Feb. 15 at approximately 19:24 UTC (2:24 p.m. EST/11:24 a.m. PST). This time may change by a minute or two as the asteroid is tracked on its approach and predictions are refined.

At the time of closest approach, the asteroid will be over the eastern Indian Ocean, off Sumatra -- approx. latitude: -6 deg South. / longitude: 97.5 deg East.

I'm saying it is a hollowed out asteroid with a habitat inside. It's a very plausible way to build a long distance space craft. Only question is are they doing an intelligence flyby or will they step on the breaks once they get here.

I'm trying to figure out whom to call to fire up the Tractor Beam. I called NASA, but the Nassholes put me on ignore.

Omg that was so scary.. I was on earth when it passed by. I could have been killed.


Oh, and it took me like 3 months to find this thread because of all the goddamn sub forums around here. Can't we have one giant thread with 800 conversations going at once?
