      This is quite amazing to see even if it is a looped video. Would have been great to be able to see something like this with the naked eye.

      I didn't saw it on news. Interesting news! Also, "There is, according to the latest calculations, no danger from Apophis either. However, it will pass much closer to Earth on 13 April 2029 - at a distance of 18,300 miles (29,500km)."

      I wish I had been able to see it for myself, but the video was cool. I read if it had hit us, it would be the force of a 7,000 megaton nuke.

      loled at this. XD since I'm a very superstitious girl, I do believe in the prediction of the ending of the world. And it does really get me nervous when people talk about it. :runaway:

      Yeah you do have to admit even if you do truly think it will not happen even the thought of someone mentioning it or even someone mentioning it worries you, just thankful this asteroid passed.

      It is a pretty scary thought to be honest, hopefully it will not happen in our life time but then again you just never know. You hear so much about near misses like this one that it does worry you about it possibly not missing one day.

      that is exactly the effect they want to produce.
      FEAR.

      why do you think news are reporting about asteroids and satellite falling down that could hit you and your family?

      producing fear...

      and you feel it.
