Don’t Look, Up In The Sky!

If you’re going to vote in the November election, make sure you get to the polls early. Apparently, an asteroid will be passing by sometime on November 2, the day before Election II: Trump Boogaloo.

An asteroid discovered in 2018 will fly very close to Earth on Nov. 2 according to The Center for Near Earth Objects Studies at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

Astronomers spotted the object from Palomar Observatory in San Diego County in 2018 followed by a 13 day observation arc and has not been detected since.

Asteroid 2018VP1 is currently projected to come close to Earth sometime during the day before the 2020 presidential election on Nov. 3, according to NASA.

The asteroid will likely come as close to between 4,700 miles and 260,000 miles of Earth.

There’s very little chance the asteroid will penetrate our atmosphere, but if Biden wins, maybe we’ll get lucky and it’ll crash right in the middle of Washington, D.C.

  1. Ooooooh! Something new for media & their lemings to freak out about. I live with a leming. She wondered if we should stock up on bottled water because of a “possible” hurricane in the gulf. We live in the pacific northwest. I just shook my head and left the room.

  2. I used to love the Capitol building, now? I’m rooting for an asteroid to hit it while Congress is in dual session.
    Unfortunately, it’s due the day before the election. We’re just not that lucky.

  3. Ronni – I know, right?

    Mike – I’m pretty sure 538 calculated the distances.

    Cathy – Yeah, we may not get gumbo for a few weeks…

    Veeshir – Probably not, but if it happens, maybe the Sergeant-At-Arms will be the next POTUS?
