http://www.universetoday.com/115861/eart...014-sc324/Looks like we dodged a bullet. A bullet-shaped asteroid that is. The 70-meter Goldstone radar dish, part of NASA’s Deep Space Network, grabbed a collage of photos of Earth-approaching asteroid 2014 SC324 during its close flyby last Friday October 24. These are the first-ever photos of the space rock which was discovered September 30 this year by the Mt. Lemmon Survey. The level of detail is amazing considering that the object is only about 197 feet (60-meters) across. You can also see how incredibly fast it’s rotating – about 30-45 minutes for a one spin.blink.gif

We are living on burrowed time and most of us greed driven obliviously...Because of our never ending herculean efforts of time and money spent upon mental and physical concentrations towards creating ever more elaborate war machines designed to crush and destroy and murder each other...We dont already have a fail safe asteroid early warning and elimination system in place to ensure our own survival...Because the royal bloodline elites who rule and control us are evil...So right now the only hope we really have is that the aliens who created us and this earthly terrarium are still interested in us enough to keep us alive as their advanced scientific experimentation species...

Seems that one missed us by 1.5 times the distance to the Moon.

The Earth has been left with a huge blind spot for potentially devastating comet strikes after the only dedicated comet-spotting program in the southern hemisphere lost its funding, leading astronomers have warned.


The program, which discovered the Siding Spring comet that narrowly missed Mars on Sunday, was shut down last year after losing funding.

“It’s a real worry,” Bradley Tucker, an astronomer at the Australian National University (ANU) and University of California Berkeley, told Guardian Australia.

“There could be something hurtling towards us right now and we wouldn’t know about it.”http://www.theguardian.com/science/2014/...hic-comets how convenient to cancel it..they probably know something is being hurled at us..and don't want mass panic blink.gif

Did they also run out of money for their war machines?...of course not!
