Near-Earth asteroid 2006 QV89 not a threat for next century

Post by Brian »

"Observations of the near-Earth asteroid 2006 QV89 made on August 11 with the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope (CFHT) have ruled out any potential future impact threat to Earth by this asteroid for the next century."

From prior limited orbit data there might have been an impact with Earth this year.

Scary, isn't it? Is there an international plan for dealing with a hazardous asteroid heading straight for us?
