NASA code 8 for NEO Asteroid 2013 KB, discovered on May 16, 2013

Asteroid 2013 KB was discovered just several days ago by NASA. NASA has put the code on 8, (0 is OK - 9 is very uncertain).

The closest approach '.008 AU' to Earth is on May 22, 2013.

Nevertheless, .008 AU is still about three times the distance of the Moon - Earth, or about 744,000 miles, but it is remarkable that Asteroid 2013 KB sits around the same position for almost 1 day before moving on.  

Listen to the information and explanation from OutrDemnDarkness in the video below:

 

Besides, there are two additional asteroids coming in along with 2013 KB:

1. 2013 KTI at 3.2 lunar distances with closest approach on May 21st, condition code 5
2. 2013 KS1 at 4.8 lunar distances, closest approach on May 22nd, condition code 8.

With four fireballs spotted over U.S. the last days, a Mexico fireball on May 18, 2013, a meteorite near miss in New Zealand, another meteorite strikes Mahangu field in Namibia and the flyby of the 1.7 miles wide Asteroid 1998 QE2 on may 31, 2013 the number of meteors/meteorites that fall to earth continues to increase...

  2. I agree with you. I'm unaware of anything "natural" in space that can stop its orbit at any time for 24 hours, then continue moving. Unless...

  3. I know, it just isn't possible! Another mystery for us to debate!
