Sources close to NASA confirm:  on November 8th, Earth will be hit by a giant asteroid!

The asteroid, designated 2005 YU55, will slam into Earth after passing by our moon. NASA says the asteroid is the size of an aircraft carrier, but astronomers and scientists working in Russia say it’s the size of – Rhode Island!

Some had believed that the asteroid would just pass by, but now it looks like it will hit earth – directly on November 8th.   Looks like it might hit somewhere in the Pacific or Oklahoma.  Nobody is sure right now.

Some are speculating that the asteroid is actually a spaceship from Planet Gootan and is part of the attack that is predicted for November 28th.  “It may be a Gootan spaceship, that is arriving early for the attack,” said Professor Banesh Bannerjee of the U.N. Panel on Extraterrestrials.

And asteroid this size has never hit the earth directly.  The last time an asteroid this big came close to Earth was 1976, and it looks like it won’t happen again until 2028.

Comets and asteroids preserve the building blocks of the planets.  And 2005 YU55 looks like it preserved a big chunk of some planet.

What can citizens do to prepare?  “Not much,” says a noted astronomer.  “It’s just a matter of luck.  If you’re in the wrong place at the wrong time, you’ll vaporize.”

It also interesting that the United States is planning a nationwide test of its emergency alert system – simultaneously on the internet, television and radio – for November 9th.  Why is the test for the day AFTER the asteroid hits earth?
