    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

    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.

    Brilliant Dan, thank you :D









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

    Thanks for that Dan.

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