Trajectory of DA14

By on 8:36 AM

In the United States -- and pretty much everywhere except southern Asia -- the asteroid DA14 won't be that spectacular. It would be a visible dot in the sky, at least, except it'll be daytime in the Western hemisphere. So, to make up for that missed astronomical action, here's a short animation from NASA that shows DA14's trajectory near the Earth. If you play some dynamic music in the background before the asteroid's bounce-back action, you can almost see Bruce Willis on it.

The video demonstrates a few interesting points about how asteroid travel, especially how they move in relation to planets, but it's slightly less cool than the actual asteroid will be. Still, you have to take what you can get with asteroids -- and hope they don't give too much.
