"NASA Announces Latest Asteroid Threat to Earth," is the headline at About.com. "Near-Earth Asteroid 2004 MN4 Reaches Highest Score To Date On Hazard Scale - It may sound like an Urban Legend, but it's not [a legend]…'unlucky numerical omens' [are] associated with this asteroid. A recently rediscovered 400-meter Near-Earth Asteroid (NEA) is predicted to pass near the Earth on Friday the 13th, April 2029. The flyby distance is uncertain and an Earth impact cannot yet be ruled out. The odds of impact, initially around 1 in 300, were unusual enough to merit special monitoring by astronomers…As of December 24, 2004, 2004 MN4 is now being tracked very carefully by many astronomers around the world, and we continue to update our risk analysis for this object.

"New impact monitoring results indicate that the impact probability for April 13, 2029 has risen to about 1.6%, which for an object of this size corresponds to a rating of 4 on the ten-point Torino Scale. Nevertheless, the odds against impact are still high…and odds are likely to change on a day-to-day basis…This object is the first to reach a level 2 (out of 10) on the Torino Scale…New telescopic observations very likely will lead to re-assignment...The brightness of 2004 MN4 suggests that its diameter is roughly 400 meters (1300 feet) and our current, but very uncertain, best estimate of the flyby distance in 2029 is about twice the distance of the Moon, or about 780,000 km (480,000 miles)."

[NOTE: First Century Press' exclusive inside sources inform us that contradictory reports about MN4 betray behind-the-scenes in-fighting in the government's asteroid Control Room. Politicians of the media elite conspire over what can be kept hidden. Some astronomers who know collision is imminent threaten to go public. They are shown one-way tickets to Gitmo. All fall silent.]

"An asteroid expected to fly past Earth in 2029 will be visible to the naked eye," reports Space.com. "It's a once-in-a-millennium event, and you may want to buy plane tickets now."

[NOTE: Earth's rendezvous with MN4 isn't a "once in a millennium event" - media of the elite need us to believe it's rare so we won't think about it. And the Space.com alert above to "buy your plane tickets now" is a reference to Space Ship One, Paul Allen's personal escape vehicle inside which he plans to escape to the Space Station and watch us perish from the impact. Had the Microsoft mogul not had Rock Prophecy suppressed, the way to save us from the Rock would've been known long ago.]

Space.com: "There has been no event like this in modern history…The 2029 event will be the closest brush by a good-sized asteroid known to occur. The rock will pass Earth inside the orbits of some satellites. No other asteroid has ever been clearly visible to the unaided eye. The asteroid is roughly estimated to be more than 1,000 feet (320 meters) wide…The rock, catalogued as 2004 MN4, was discovered last June. It was seen again in December, and for a time scientists said it had the highest odds of hitting Earth ever given to a space rock…This week, NASA scientists used new observations from the Arecibo Observatory to further pin down the track of 2004 MN4. On April 13, 2029, it will be about 22,600 miles (36,350 kilometers) from Earth's center. That is just below the altitude of geosynchronous satellites, which hover in fixed perches above the planet."

[NOTE: If the altitude is 22,600 miles "from Earth's center", then from the surface of Earth it's under 20,000 miles up, close enough to be caught by gravity and pulled down on us. The report above is worded to minimize the threat by making the Rock's path seem further away.]

Space.com: "'Of the 10 known closest asteroid flybys, 2004 MN4 is by far the largest object,' said Steve Chesley of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory...2004 MN4 is expected to shine like a fast-moving star at magnitude 3.3...easily visible...the 323-day orbit of 2004 MN4 lies mostly within the orbit of Earth. The 2029 flyby will bend the rock's path and change the circumstances of later close passes to Earth. Were an asteroid the size of 2004 MN4 to hit Earth, it would cause local devastation and regional damage."

[NOTE: "Flyby will bend the rock's path and change the circumstances" - what's left unsaid is that astronomers can't agree this rock'll pass us by.]
