On Tuesday, November 8, at 6:28 p.m. EST, an asteroid the size of an aircraft carrier will soar past our planet, coming even closer than the Moon. This is the nearest an object this large has come since 1976… how will it affect our world? Find out here.

    The time will come soon when all on Earth will look to the Heavens above.

    IMPORTANT NOTICE TO ALL THAT LIVE BY THE SEA OR OCEAN SHORE AT 1 FOOT TO 50 FEET ABOVE SEA LEVEL. Or with in ten miles of the coast. World Wide.

    This will be a very close call i pray it is only that. Discovered on December 28, 2005 by Robert McMillan of the Spacewatch Program A potentially hazardous Asteroid known as 2005 YU55.

    This Asteroid some what Large 400 meter-sized type – C, will pass by the Earth right between our moon and Earth. On November 8, 2011.

    The people on Earth have not seen a Asteroid of this size in advance. One this big Has not impacted Earth in over at least 4 thousand years.

    Most Objects that have a diameters over 45 meters or 147.637 ft strike the Earth approximately once every thousand years or so. Lying flat everything for hundreds of miles.

    Like the TUNGUSKA 1908 SIBERIA, RUSSIA CRASH OR Tunguska Explosion. This one did not even hit the Earth with its full Impact, it burst high in the air above the ground plowing it apart into many smaller parts. Making thousands of very deep holes in the Russian forests. Many of them in dense forest far from any roads or towns.

    One 400 Meters 1,312.3 ft in diameter like this one YU55 weighing millions of tons would if impacted Earth on land would darken all of the Earth not for just days but much longer.

    It would change the weather not seen on Earth in over thousands of years a massive climate change to say the least.

    Asteroids in our Asteroid Belt that is between the orbits of Jupiter and Mars do have collisions and some do turn into meteoroids many in the past thousands of years have come into the Earth’s Atmosphere. Many of thousands of them make it into Meteorites the signs are all over the Earth, craters of all sizes.

    Now Earth going through a Debris Field or Tail of a Comet or large Asteroid at almost the same time as Asteroid YU55 near Earth Miss? Debris fields some times are very Large to say the least.

    The World and NASA will watch Outer Space very closely the next 30 days.
    Most likely more Earthquakes and the Oceans Tide will be strongly affected just from a near miss. The Gravitational Effects from outer space will most likely effect Earth for days.

    Let us all pray
    this is just a near Earth miss or NEO (Near Earth Object) or Near Earth Orbit.

    READ THE BIBLE
    Judgment Day will come soon enough.

    Please Look at this site it is NASA’s Near Earth Object Program.

    UP COMING CLOSE APPROACHES TO EARTH

    Then go to

    (2005 YU55) NOV 8, 2011
    (2005 XB1) NOV 8, 2011
    (2011 TP6) NOV 2011
    (2000 YA) DEC 26, 2011

    Add a asteroid about a mile wide into this Equation and ???
    Object ( 20011LC19 ) it to will be going by Earth around Oct 28, 2011 tru
    Nov 4, 2011. It is 1.2km or 3,937Ft wide.

    May The Lord GOD our Father in Heaven Watch over and Guide you.
    GOD Bless
    Read the Bible
    John 8:12-31

    • You veered way off track after the Tunguska part. The pass of YU55 will not affect Earth in any way, gravitationally or otherwise. And passing through comet debris does nothing but make some pretty shooting stars. We will be fine.

      We have enough of our own problems to deal with, these cosmic visitors won’t harm us nearly as much as we are harming ourselves.
