 Doomsday encounters: 900-foot wide Asteroid Apophis to pass Earth... 4am UAE time


If you haven’t had enough of Doomsday predictions already, then here’s more. A 900-foot-wide asteroid, named Apophis, is expected to pass overhead today (January 9, 2013).

Scientists expect some close encounters of asteroid Apophis with Earth later in 2029 and 2036, though they have ruled out any cataclysmic collision yet. However, if that tiny chance were to exist, then according to Nasa calculations, the collision could generate a blast equivalent to more than 500 megatons of TNT.

In comparison, the most powerful hydrogen bomb ever detonated, the Soviet Tsar Bomba, released 57 megatons.

Scientists will closely study today’s passage to estimate just how dangerous the space rock really is and to refine its trajectory for future close passes.

The asteroid named after an Egyptain demon will not get closer than around nine million miles tomorrow, according to a Daily Mail report.

The big rock will get closet to Earth at midnight UK time (4am UAE time, Thursday, January 10).

 Re:

Here is a passage that *could* refer to an asteroid:

(8) The second angel sounded his trumpet, and something like a huge mountain, all ablaze, was thrown into the sea. A third of the sea turned into blood, (9) a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.

(10) The third angel sounded his trumpet, and a great star, blazing like a torch, fell from the sky on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water— (11) the name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters turned bitter, and many people died from the waters that had become bitter.

Revelation 8:8-11 (NIV 1984)

~

8 And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood;

9 And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.

10 And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters;

11 And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.

Revelation 8:8-11 (KJV)

~

8 The second angel sounded, and something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea; and a third of the sea became blood, 9 and a third of the creatures which were in the sea and had life, died; and a third of the ships were destroyed.

10 The third angel sounded, and a great star fell from heaven, burning like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of waters. 11 The name of the star is called Wormwood; and a third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died from the waters, because they were made bitter.

Revelation 8:8-11 (NASB)
