Exclamation A small asteroid (ASTEROID 2008 TC3) is going to hit Earth TONIGHT!

INCOMING ASTEROID: A small, newly-discovered asteroid named 2008 TC3 is approaching Earth and chances are better than 99.8% that it will hit. Steve Chesley of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory estimates that atmospheric entry will occur on Oct 7th at 0246 UTC over northern Sudan to the Red Sea. Measuring only a few meters across, the space rock poses no threat to people or structures on the ground, but it should create a spectacular fireball, releasing about a kiloton of TNT in energy as it disintegrates and explodes in the atmosphere. Asteroids of this size hit Earth every few months, but this is the first time one has been discovered before it hit.

It's only 2 meters wide. Pooooffff! Fizzle Fizzle! Go to www.spaceweather.com for details.

It will look like a fireball. And I also did a test on the asteroid impact calculator. It's nothing serious.

Peace.

"The only concern is that [the explosions] might be interpreted as something else, that is man-made explosions" Hmmmm ... the timing is just so weird

A few meters across, NOT 2 meters!

A few meters can be anything actually.

Default Asteroid to hit Earth tonight

An asteroid about ten feet across was spotted this weekend, and calculations indicate a point of entry near Sudan, or the Middle East.
Full story at;

I just no one mistakes the flash and boom as an incoming missile, this rock is expected to cause a bright flash and blast at about 2:46 AM GMT ( Greenwich)

Very interesting....The first fireworks of October 07....A great light will appear in the sky with fire and noise and herald the new age of enlightenment where the human spirit will be uncaged and the foundation of life, joyous expansion of love, will be revealed.

I read it will be about 3 meters wide.
Unfortunately, no chance to destroy illuminati headquarters
