A bus-sized asteroid will miss earth by 2,100 miles on Friday

It’s not mountain-sized, like the one the Apostle John saw in his vision of the end-times, but a bus-sized asteroid that will miss earth by only 2,100 miles (ca. 3,380 km) later this week. The asteroid, named 2023 BU, which is travelling at 33,300 miles (ca. 53,591 km) an hour, will skim by earth on Friday, Jan 27, 2023. According to NASA, its current trajectory indicates it will not hit the earth, but nevertheless, it is the fourth-closest recorded distance an asteroid has been to our planet. 2023 BU was only picked up by NASA the past weekend. At 12.4 feet (3.78 m) by 27.8 feet (8.47 m) in size, it is about half the size of the meteor that exploded over Chelyabinsk, Russia in 2013. NASA added that 2023 BU would probably burn up if it did veer into our planet. So call it a warning shot across the bow, as the Apostle John warned of asteroids hitting earth during the end times apocalypse causing significant damage READ: Huge asteroid the size of a …

Mountain-sized asteroid will zoom by earth on April 29th

A recent Daily Mail headline immediately caught my attention as it read “Asteroid the size of Mount Everest set to fly by earth next month.” Of course, the reason for my interest is that the Apostle John in his vision of the end-times saw a mountain-sized asteroid slamming into the earth. But as I read the article, the asteroid known as “52768 (1998 OR2)” is only 2.25 miles (ca. 3,621 meters) at its widest point wide making it just under half the size of Mt Everest, the world’s largest mountain that is 5.5 miles (ca. 9 km) high. But despite this, 52768 easily qualifies as a mountain as it is larger than Oregon’s Mt. Hood that is about 2.12 miles (3.41 km) in size. This asteroid, first discovered in 1998, will fly by earth at 19,461 miles per hour (ca. 31,319 km/h) on April 29, 2020. The good news is that it will miss us by 3,908,791 miles (ca. 6,290,589 km). The bad news is that it is a regular inhabitant of our solar system …
