    Maybe not after all. It should be an interesting sight though, assuming the Mayans were wrong that is.

    We'll never see it. it will pass (assuming it's present course) at such altitude that there will be zero atmospheric heating, and it will be traveling at such a high velocity that it'll be all over in a fraction of a second.

    Going from the JPL NEO information, relative velocity is around 6 km/s...pretty damned fast, but on the lower end of the spectrum as these things go.

    I'll hide underneath Porky O'Donnell. Should provide enough cover.
    IIRC the Tunguska meteor wasn't much bigger and it did some damage.
