[ NASA: A truck-sized asteroid is headed toward Earth one day before the November election – Business Insider ]

An asteroid has a slim chance of entering the Earth’s atmosphere November 2, or one day before the US election, according to NASA.’

Named “2018VP1,” the asteroid is pretty tiny, with an estimated diameter of 1.8 to 3.9 meters, NASA data show.’

It’s only 0.41% likely to actually impact the Earth, but celestial objects that size tend to burn up in the atmosphere anyway, NASA told Business Insider.

“Asteroid 2018VP1 is very small, approximately 6.5 feet, and poses no threat to Earth,” a spokesperson for NASA told Business Insider. “If it were to enter our planet’s atmosphere, it would disintegrate due to its extremely small size.”

2018VP1 has had a few close encounters with Earth before, dating back to 1970. It last visited in November of 2018, roughly when it was discovered at California’s Palomar Observatory.’

It’s due back, after a two-year orbit around the sun, to come within 4,800 and 260,000 miles of our atmosphere, NASA data show. For reference, the International Space Station sits about 254 miles above the planet.

Asteroid could be heading toward Earth before Election Day, reports say

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — An asteroid has a small chance of heading towards Earth on Nov. 2, the day before the U.S. election, according to recent reports.

Now after a two-year orbit around the sun, it will come within 4,800 and 260,000 miles of our atmosphere, Business Insider reported, according to NASA data. To compare, the International Space Station (ISS) sits about 254 miles above Earth, according to the media outlet.

Earlier this month, an SUV-sized asteroid set the record for coming closer to Earth than any other known Near Earth Asteroid (NEAs), according to a NASA press release.

NASA reports asteroid headed toward earth one day before November 3rd U.S. election

Just in case a pandemic, a subsequent toilet paper shortage, anarchy in the streets, and political polarization weren’t enough, an asteroid is heading our way just before Election Day in November.

The celestial object measuring about 6-1/2 feet known as 2018VP1 is set to arrive on November 2, 2020. Scientists at the Palomar Observatory in California first discovered it in 2018.

Keep in mind, however, that this is 2020, and everything seems up for grabs. As TMZ quipped, ‘With our luck in 2020, who’s betting that it will miss?’

10 things you need to know this morning in Australia

1. Australian parliament is back. After a ten-week COVID-19 hiatus, and a mandatory 14-day self-isolation period for some, some pollies are back walking the halls of power, while others are video conferencing in for the first time ever. The first big ticket item on their agenda? Legislating JobKeeper 2.0 which is due to taper off at the end of next month, despite Labor complaining that Victoria’s hard shutdown changes everything.

2. Unfortunately for the Libs, the big day comes after another big Victorian branch-stacking scandal. 60 Minutes and the Nine Newspapers revealed on Sunday that the scheme used fake members and taxpayer-funded staffers to control preselection of favoured political candidates. Coming off the back of a very similar scandal orchestrated by Labor powerbroker Adam Somyurek, there’s something rotten in the state of Victoria.

Alex Jones’ Prison Planet website explains “The mainstream media has finally seen fit to cover Charlie Sheen’s comments on 9/11… penning hit pieces that seek to smear Sheen as an unstable crackpot.”
