Leave it to the cool geeks at NASA to get a virtual tour of Asteroid DA14 currently heading towards Earth. At the posting...it is about 19K miles away. It is about 38 minutes from its closest pass.

You can check it out at
http://eyes.nasa.gov/

Select Asteroid Flyby (you may need to do the direct download of the java program - it is worth it.)

Cheers

Hopefully I will see you all again in like 40 minutes if all the math works out.

Thanks for that Dan. :thumbsup:

I guess that we don`t need Bruce Willis to save the planet this time then? :lol:
