WTF.....the Hubble Telescope says it won't be able to get any pictures of the asteroid as it is coming into fast to be seen. I can't believe NASA or Some Satelite isnt picking this thing up.. It's the Size of a Damn Planet. I thought they said something about by 830 today. But I didnt hear AM or PM.    >:(

Today's the day, eh? Well friends, it's been fun!

Seriously though I am sure something will pick it up. Not the HT but we've got something tracking it no doubt.

You need to go to a science news website and not people.com  ;D

NASA is tracking it closely, I bet you can find it online

Tracking of the aircraft carrier-sized asteroid will begin at 9:30 a.m. local time (PDT) on Nov. 4, using the massive 70-meter (230-foot) Deep Space Network antenna, and last for about two hours. The asteroid will continue to be tracked by Goldstone for at least four hours each day from Nov. 6 through Nov. 10. Radar observations from the Arecibo Planetary Radar Facility in Puerto Rico will begin on Nov. 8, the same day the asteroid will make its closest approach to Earth at 3:28 p.m. PST.

I have watched their mission control during other ops.

A tracking schematic.

I wish I was more into this shit with telescopes, would have liked to track this one.  It was visible from what I hear.

Holy shit. Even if it missed us, if it hit the Moon we'd all be dead. That is freaking close.

Ah, prefer not to know how close to annihilation I come.

Good thing it didnt go between the earth and the moon like they said. Was it still the size of a small planet? Yep if it clips the moon that will affect us. Specially Tides.

I'm fairly certain if it even clipped the Moon we would all end up dead. Not instantly but everything would get thrown out of whack. The debris would block out the sun too, and we'd die like the dinos, cold and dark.  :(
