I found it ironic that while the entire planet is observing the close pass of Asteroid 2012 DA14, this fella comes out of nowhere, undetected, and unexpected and, WHAM!

Makes you realize how fragile we all are on the blue marble!

Could have been a LOT worse!

Hope the folks recover OK :)

I have nothing to say but wish the injured get in shape soon..on the second thought, it was luck that they were one in a million to get stroke by a meteor.(just kidding) but it was life-risky.

with all due respect i couldnt have said it better exactly what i was thinking. i feel bad for all those hurt and wish them well and a speedy recovery on another note where was the governments with the we have incoming warning. with all the millions spent on research still no heads up earthlings. this thing started as an underground warning from the so called tin hat people. where was all the news agencies oh there all owned by who well figure it out thanks for nothing these peoples pain is on the above metioned hands. even a sheep herder does more for his sheep.maybe thats because he doesnt have too many sheep. hmm theres another thing to figure out. by the way great pic suzanne you almost made me say what asteriod wouldnt be a man if i didnt say no disrespect intended.
