Giant asteroid Coming July 3rd


A giant asteroid is going to fly by earth at about the distance of the moon on July 3rd. It will be a near miss for this 1/2 mile wide space rock. You might even be able to spot it with binoculars as it goes by. But it will happen in the early morning while most people are sleeping in the Americas.

Uff da !

Oh well, that's okay. That just means it was close to returning home. You know asteroids, meteorites, and comets orginated on earth during the time of the Flood. I feel secure; I don't agree with the doom-and-gloomers on the Discovery Channel that we're 15 millions years overdue for a world-killing asteroid impact. I sleep soundly at night knowing that God is in control, and planet-killing space objects don't start to arrive until the angels sound their trumpets of jugdment and we've already been gathered into Christ's presense. Sleep soundly.

Near miss? Sounds like a near hit. It's not too close to Earth but how close to the moon will it be and wil it affect the moon's gravity? We shall see ... not like worrying about it will change anything. There's another in the year 2029 that will will pass within 20,000 miles of Earth .. the one on July 3rd 2006 will be 220,000 miles from Earth or approximately the moons distance from Earth. The one in 2029 will swing around the sun and head back at us in 2036 ... Nobody knows how close it will be in 2036 or if it will hit us or not in either of the passes.

Did anyone see it? Someone said it could be seen, someone said it would be difficult. I forgot to look; I had a great 4th weekend up north. Plus all I have is binoculaurs.
Did anyone see it? What did it look, what did you think?

aaron, you really need to read more science books and put the Bible away for a couple of days. "comets originated on earth during the time of the Flood" ???

Well, that's what I call an opinion!
