How To: Watch the City-Block Sized 2002 AM31 Asteroid Fly by Earth Live Today

Watch the City-Block Sized 2002 AM31 Asteroid Fly by Earth Live Today

Later today, an asteroid the size of a city block (about 3,000 feet wide) called 2002 AM31 will fly by the Earth. It will still be about 3.2 million miles away, so there's nothing to be worried about, but you can watch it make its journey in real-time online.

2000 AM31 now, as seen from the JPL Small-Body Database Browser

The Slooh Space Camera will be posting a live feed from the Slooh Telescope in the Canary Islands. The show will start at 4:30 p.m. Pacific Time and they'll be speaking with Bob Berman of Astronomy magazine, Prescott Observatory's Matt Francisco, and Slooh's own Patrick Paolucci.

You can watch the flyby event of 2002 AM31 at Slooh. Again, the show starts at 4:30 p.m. PT (7:30 p.m. ET), but if you miss that, there will be another telescope tracking the asteroid from Arizona at around 8 p.m. PT (11 p.m. ET). If you manage to catch any good screenshots, be sure to share them with us!

What should be of concern by earth, and scientist is it is now proved that our Lord Jesus Christ He the master Scientist and God of all matter, could merel while we watch call His matter/Meteor/Asteroid to earth, merely command its moving off its course and it would slam into earth shocking all! For evidence that He our Lord now prepares His earth for His retaking of it, go to the website's mentioned below, and on all pages are evidences of His Finished Mystery such as the proof in the news and science page and on the Darwin battle field of God and satan page, also on the Adam the first researcher page...

Go to the website at and on the about us page see who it is God loves and see part of His Finished Mystery Revelation 10:7, also go to the prophecy and the signs page on the same site to view the prewritten news events of this day, which were written over three years ago and more and are the likes of the Washington DC/Virginia Beach Virginia quakes our Lord Jesus brought on the same day as the unveiling of the martin luther king statue in DC { with more quakes coming there as we speak, to DC/V.Beach } also prewritten many months before taking place the Japan quake and tidal wave, these signs that have come and many more that now come are prophesy so all those who God loves will know the Minister of the Research site is a Righteous man! Also go to the site at Adam and Eve in Action blog to view evidence our Lord prepares His earth for His retaking of it in this Epic generation.... Respect to all those of Adam/God
