An asteroid possibly as large as a half-mile or more in diameter is rapidly approaching the Earth. The space rock will make an exceptionally close approach to our planet early on Monday, July 3, passing just beyond the Moon's average distance from Earth.

My freind has access to a Computer controlled Telescope that takes very nice pics of far away planets like Saturn, so we will be trying to photograph this chunk of space debris, if we can get the coordinates, track it, and if the weather is decent...

This type of thing happens far more than anyone would want to know about.

Good think the MIB are making sure we all think it's just an asteroid...

Don't worry Bruce Willis and Ben Affleck will save us... if not then it'll be Robert Duvall and company... one of the two. :D

The asteroid WAS heading straight for earth, until it found out Chuck Norris lived here.

Well since I was able to get up this morning I assume the world was not destroyed.
