    Large Asteroid Likely to Hit Earth in Feb. 2013


    March 4, 2012 – A possible catastrophe is in the making as Asteroid 2012 DA14 which is 197 feet or 60 meters has a good chance of impacting Earth between February 15-16, 2013. It was spotted by Spanish Stargazers in February of this year and now scientist are trying to figure out a way to defend Earth from a possible catastrophe. NASA’s David Dunham says: “The asteroid may split into pieces entering the atmosphere. In this case, most parts of it will never reach the planet’s surface.” If the asteroid does hit the Earth scientist believe the impact will be similar to the Tunguska blast, which in 1908 knocked down trees over a total area of 2,150 sq km (830 sq miles) in Siberia.
    The Earth distance of object 2012 DA14 on the JPL chart has dropped to a negative on February 16, 2013, indicating an impact scenario has likely occurred.
