    "Steve Chesley (JPL) reports that atmospheric entry will occur on 2008
    Oct 07 0246 UTC over northern Sudan.


    Hmm .. Northern Sudan ... just a few miles from MECCA!

    (one could only wish)

    It's supposed to be 15 feet across and full of different metals.

    It looks like there was no damage. It's kind of scary to think they noticed it just 6 hours before impact, though. :eek:

    You do realize that Mecca is in Saudi Arabia, no?
    At Coretta Scott King's funeral in early 2006, Ethel Kennedy, the widow of Robert Kennedy, leaned over to him and whispered, "The torch is being passed to you." "A chill went up my spine," Obama told an aide. (Newsweek)

    3 hours to go! I'm still planning to get on with life as normal though, I am cautious about stories from RENSE.

    I think it already burned up so I'd go ahead with those dinner reservations. :D

    Yes. But if you look on the globe, it's not that far.

    If only ....

    Sorry, but if an asteroid is coming down that close to Mecca, it's a shame it didn't go just a bit further.
    Afterall, that's what they worship when they go on a haj. They walk around a meteor.

    It seems like a waste of a perfectly good asteroid - to miss mecca like that. :p

    Wishing the destruction of a religionís capital is the kind of thinking that got us embroiled in the Middle East and relearning (or not) the lessons the French and English were exposed to a century ago. Very small thinking.

    See it as you wish.

    I see it as a waste of an asteroid that had soooooo much potential.
