    I heard on the news today that astronomers now believe that an asteroid measuring 1.2 miles across that was originally estimated to impact our planet in 2019 will probably just miss us.


    Wake up!:eek: :( :insane:

    BenP: Your title "Near Miss" had me worried. Thought I was going to have to read about a lesbian or something like that. That was da m n close, though. (ha)

    It may not really be a near miss. Comets and asteroids are often surrounded by clouds of debris. So, even if the main asteroid misses us, the still could be some sizeable meteor strikes.
