An Asteroid Twice the Size of the Eiffel Tower Is Due to Fly by Earth on August 10 At 10,400 MPH

Asteroid 2006 QQ23 is 570 meters (1,870 feet) in diameter and is traveling at speeds of approximately 16,740 kilometers per hour (10,400 miles per hour). 

But we have nothing to fear from potentially hazardous near-Earth asteroid… According to astronomers.

Asteroid 2006 QQ23 will zip pass Earth at a distance of 0.049 astronomical units (7.48 million kilometers or 4.65 million miles). Quite a long way!

According to NASA, around six objects of its size come this close to Earth in any one year, so it’s nothing out of the ordinary. In contrats, an impact is a much rarer event and only takes place once every two or three centuries. 

Over the years, several small asteroids and many large meteors have entered the atmosphere, creating strong ‘seismic waves’ recorded by US military satellites. Think Chelyabinsk or more recently the Bering Sea fireball.

According to NASA’s NEO project, there are some 900 near-Earth objects of more than 1,000 meters (3,280 feet). And I just let you imagine the amount of damage if they were to fall in the wrong place. Here for New York:

As you see, a large asteroid measuring 50-80 meters (165-260 feet) would destroy New York City in ruins. In the meantime, it’s good that NASA and other space agencies try to find the best solution to deflect such space rocks if they were about to hit the Earth.

  1. According to Dr. Carol Rosin, Dr. Werner Von Braun told her that fake asteroid scares would come just before the final fake scare: a false “alien” invasion.

    According to the Bible, this will actually be Satan’s minions (fallen angels) that will deceive the earth dwellers.

    Fake, EZ “salvation” theologies will doom the vast majority of Christians who thought their “sinner’s prayer” or “just believing” or “sabbath/law-keeping” would save them. It was all a delusion, as Jesus Christ warned us over and over again would happen in the last days’ church.

    Repent from these fake, false, Bible-tract type scams: take up your OWN cross and enter the strait gate and walk the narrow way, and search out the Lord Jesus Christ with all your heart and soul, just as Jesus Christ commanded ALL of us to DO.

    For the diligent truth-seeker, a teaching on the true salvation gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, the faith which was once delivered unto the saints (or click my name for the link if this does not work):

    • 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12 English Standard Version (ESV)

      9 The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders, 10 and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. 11 Therefore God sends them a strong delusion, so that they may believe what is false, 12 in order that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
