Heads UP! Welcome Meteor/Asteroid and Party Crashers

meteor 1

The Ultimate Wild Ride!

There is a 150 foot meteor/asteroid racing towards us at alarming speed, no lie, and it is supposed to come within 17,200 miles of Earth on February 15!

What is alarming about this event is not that it could easily knock out satellites nor that it will be a lot closer to us than the moon nor that it could wreak all kinds of havoc with our electronics nor that it could actually smack our planet. No. What is really alarming, is how our experts can’t decide whether to call it a meteor or an asteroid!

Daily Mail – CNN Anchor Suggests Meteor Hurtling Toward Earth Could Be a Result of Global Warming

CBS News – Earth in No Danger from Asteroid Flyby this Week

meteor 2

Woohoo!

They have been making these predictions while it continues to head straight for us. Hopefully, their calculations are more accurate than their terminology, otherwise, February 14th could be our last day on the Earth as we know it!  

If they can’t agree on what to call it, then how am I supposed to have faith in their predictions? 17,200 miles from Earth is considered a “near-miss” cosmically and what if their original calculations included +/- 20,000 miles????

You know that I am a party girl, so this is a great excuse!

Move over Valentine’s Day.  Thursday, February 14th will be another Use Me and Abuse Me Day!

The only way to fly!

Bring a link from your blog and post it in the comment section on the 14th to get the party started! Click on a couple intriguing links and mingle with the guests. Go over to their place. Put your feet up and stay a while. Make yourself at home. Say, “Hey! Susie sent me!”

Spread the LOVE and party like it’s your last day on Earth! The sky may fall on Friday…

Will you keep an eye on the sky Friday night?

        I’ll visit again tomorrow and add a link to my latest poem post, if you want. Had a bit of a bad day. I think I woke up funny today, and trapped a nerve, as I have had rheumatic pains all day in my arm, shoulders, and shoulder blade. Been absolute agony. Hopefully,, I will feel better tomorrow,, after a good nights sleep. Glad to hear your post went viral! : ) Lots Of Love Paul OXOXOXOXOXO

Now, I have a slight throbbing pain in my arm, but it is managable, and less severe. Thank you for your kindess, and for also following my blog! Good to see, we both survived another end of the world threat. Hopefully, that is the last we will hear of predictions, and people will just get on with Life and enjoy it! : ) Have a fun Weekend!

  14. Hey Suzie. Great article. I thought you might like to see this article about the Asteroid/Meter, which I stumbled up.

    http://metro.co.uk/2013/02/07/nasa-confirms-40m-long-asteroid-wont-hit-earth-but-will-be-closest-miss-ever-3397482/

    I think my viewpoint on it, is this. The Asteroid/Meter is meant to be passing close to the earth, between the planet and our satelites. It makes you wonder if such a large mass will actually knock out any of our communication satelites. After all, isn’ t there meant to be loads of the things up in our orbit, circling our planet. Also, what effect will the gravitational pull of the planet have on the course of the Asteroid/Meter?

    One thing we can be sure. If the scientist are wrong, there won’t be much time to do anything about it. We may as well party and enjoy ourselves. I think oiur world has become so obsessed lately with our world ending, that we should forget about when we are all going to die, and just concentrate on living. Besides, if we keep tempting fate by bringing up the subject constantly, it might eventually happen. I personally hope the scientist are right, and we get to live on for another thousand years, at least! Much I really loved your picture of you riding the Asteroid/Meter. So funny! LOL! Love Paul OXOXOXOXOXO

    I had to google the difference between a meteor & an asteroid because I had no clue (I’m no rocket scientist ;-0). According to the Hubble Site and NASA, a meteor actually refers to the flash of light seen in the sky when a chunk of interplanetary debris burns up as it travels through our atmosphere (think shooting star). An asteroid is a relatively small, inactive, rocky body orbiting the Sun. Sounds like the meteor would be the less problematic.
    So, either it’s an end of world party or a light-show party – either way, awesome!
    Who but a wild rider would rock out (no pun intended) on an asteroid?!!
