'SPOOKY' AS HELL -- Is the Moon about to be HIT by an asteroid? Warning of collision course set for HALLOWEEN
According to Express News, an enormous asteroid with a highly unpredictable orbit that has more chance of hitting the Moon than the Earth when it passes on Halloween is being closely monitored after being discovered only a few days ago.
Here’s what they had to say:
NASA and other space agencies which scour space for potential threats had no idea the up to 640-metre space rock, now officially called 2015 TB145 and classed as “potentially hazardous,” even existed until October 10. It is hurtling our way at 78,000 miles an hour – a speed 29 times greater than that of a high velocity rifle bullet.
NASA has rated it nine out of a maximum nine in terms of high orbital uncertainty, meaning the estimated passing distances are guess work and not clearly known, so it could theoretically come in even closer. The asteroid, nicknamed “spooky” due to the fears, has alarmed skywatchers and is up to two-and-a-half times the size of US presidential candidate Donald Trump’s 72-floor Trump Towers complex in New York. It is expected to make the closest pass of Earth of any significant-sized asteroid for nine years and until 2027.
Will it happen? I don’t know. But it certainly is worth watching and praying about!
