Tomorrow that thing will pass within 17,220 miles of Earth. Think that's far away, think again.

Some of our weather satellites and all of our GPS satellites are parked 22,000 miles above the Earth. So that thing will pass between them and us.

Does that mean my GPS is going to hiccup tomorrow? Hope I don't end up in Ohio.

As long as it keeps going straight and doesn't curve we should be good.

We got lucky this time...God might send another one our way if we don't change our ways, and it could be an ELE event.

Better call Bruce Willis and his crew to stand by in case we need to drill it. I could keep liv Tyler at my house if it would be safer for her.

I think it would probably hit near New England, if it did hit.

Yep, that was a small metor.

This asteroid is several MILES bigger in size.
