    Ok, here’s a question – what if an asteroid hit the moon? And let’s say it obliterates the moon, or pushes it out of orbit somehow. Would that directly influence earth’s tides? The reason I ask is because it looks like this asteroid will pass closer to the moon than the earth – so one day, who knows?

      Jim, You are correct on the distance from the moon. It’s going only be about 4/10th the distance between the the moon and the earth. If it hit the moon it would mean huge impacts on earth from Tides, Weather, Seismic and Volcanic impacts. The moon’s gravity pulls not just on the oceans but the atmosphere and the mantle all of which are essentially liquids. .

    What time frame will this happen? Would like to take a look.

      Lisa, it will be Tuesday during the day so we won’t be able to see it with the naked eye.

    If You do the math, one year from now, We will be back on this side of the sun where the solar activity is.
    What a coincidence the solar activity has with Us being the same side of the Sun, as We approach December 21st,2012…. Makes You think….

    If the sun does launch a CME how many days would it be before the Aurora Borealis take place?

    • Anonymous

      Typically about 1-2 days after sometimes as much as 3 depending on the speed of the CME. So we will have time to know which day will be best for viewing.

    Okay, does this make anybody else nervous?? An asteriod & possible a huge sunspot in the same week?? LOL, we’re supposed to have a National Emergency test on November 9th. All of these converging at the same time could cause some confusion!

      Yeah the timing of the National EAS test is kind of eerie.

    the closest one being 0.2 LD away from us? and it is eerie.

      You can see the list above none next week will be closer than tonight’s. The one that will be only 0.2 LD away won’t happen until 2029.
