Asteroid 2011 MD Whizzes by Earth

Asteroid Buzzes Earth in Close Shave | Asteroid 2011 MD & Asteroid Photos | Near-Earth Objects | Space.com

should be interesting to see what happens when the mayan calendar ends.

I'm not worried, I already know how this thing's going to end...

Wait for planet X to pass between the sun and earth then your in for a show.

Wouldn't the escape velocity, or lack thereof, of "Planet X" make that an impossibility? We will need Dex's input on this.

Planet X has a gravity independent of our sun, I think.
It passes every 3600 years. Its getting close to
us now again. Start building your noa's arch. This is
Probably why our sun has been so activity, and the
Magnetic pole are moving around this year.
Our Calendar year will change after this thing passes by.

What Planet X? Lowell's planet X does not exist...and any object with mass will have gravity independent of our sun, which by the way is not active right now, it's very inactive.

As for this little asteroid, it's far too small to be a threat. It would break apart and burn up in our atmosphere before ever touching the surface of our planet.

Think Voyager and how they used Jupiters gravity and rotation to sling shot one of the probes further and faster to Saturn and beyond. I believe another NASA probe recently used the sun to slingshot it to it's distant destination.

Planet X. The one NASA announced in 2005.
Why do you think we are getting hale stones
falling out of the sky every week and the magnetic
Pole are moving, and the earthquake?

Magnetic pole has been moving about 30 miles a year ever since there has been a magnetic pole - great test for neophyte navigators in the high Arctic. Hail falls when it gets too heavy for updraughts to hold it up there and earthquakes are caused from tectonic movement. Planet X? ...well Google doesn't appear to be your friend there....

You guys can see updated listings for near miss asteroids on spaceweather.com.

those have nothing to do with that planets 3600yr orbit or whats going on here

Cause a planet 3 times the size of our planet passing between earth and the sun
will definitely have no effect on anything in this system. >.<

Strong updrafts with a large amount of supercooled cloud droplets. Not strange at all, it's a regular feature of the meteorology on this planet.

Quote:

the magnetic Pole are moving

The magnetic di-pole shifts polarity quite regularly in geologic terms of reference. In between the reversals the location of magnetic North and South are wandering around. Again, this is a regular feature of our planet.

Quote:

and the earthquake?

A regular feature of our planet. Thailand, Chile, Haiti, we get destructive earthquakes regularly.

None of this has anything to do with an alleged Planet X.

Of course it would. But that doesn't mean it's responsible for the events you're attributing it to.

In earths long history when has this planet come out of left field to tear the **** out of our planet? If the planet has a 3600yr orbit and the earth has been here for 4.6 billion years, how come we dont have evidence from previous encounters?

What about the rock? There would be evidence of regular cataclysmic events of that nature.

Dunno.... Today's the first time I looked. BTW - one place says two-thirds the size of Earth. Another, just a tad bigger than Pluto. Either way, it won't hurt a bit....

Really? oh good. I thought it was bigger.

There are some i've found. Let me go try to find it.

your talking about Eris? Im not sure what websites your reading but the orbit of this planet Eris may be eccentric but it doesnt come anywhere close to the distance we orbit from our sun. Its orbit alone if its lucky comes the closest to pluto.....

No its planet Xeno/nibirus

2003 UB313 or Eris and Planet X are not the same thing. The orbit of Eris doesn't bring it near Earth at all.

It's not even as large as our moon.

Watch this guy's whole presentation. there are 12 parts since its on You tube.
(I'm not saying I have the same view's as him but I think he may have discovered some truth)

Watch that whole 12 part youtube link I posted. Lots of good info about that.
He only talks about survival at the end though.
