    Looking forward to seeing it on its flight path. Hope we do not have cloudy skies at that time.

    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.
    —Albert Einstein.

    Well, there went the asteroid that "was" supposed to come within 400 meters of the earth's surface........Anyone remember the "Raelians" and their "leader" Marshall Applewhite? They all committed suicide in the belief that there was supposed to be some kind of comet that would pick them up and whisk them away to a new dimension and new situation?

    CD I hesitate to correct you but you are perhaps having a senior moment?

    It was 400 metres in dia and passed the Earth @ approx 320000k's

    @teddy it was never going to be visible to the naked eye, 400m @ 320000k
