Could we detect an exact area of a meteor hit? I don't think we could. I`d assume it would be evacuate an entire state/section of a country.

OK. I *KNOW* space is vast but for a sense of true urgency can we agree that, in the future, it is only "Close" when it is inside the moon's orbit and it is only a "Near Miss" when it is inside the orbit of our geosynchronous satellites.

Anything more reactionary is akin to crying "Wolf" and will soon become ignored when it should not.

If I was Dr Evil, I'd find a way to hang a solar sail on it and hold the world to ransom.

@drawman61: It's not coming very close, and they can pin-point it`s trajectory soon after discovery, eh?

It`s big, but not BIG! It would wipe out a whole city if it hit one though. There would have been time to evacuate had that been the case.

Anyhow, I think it`s cool! Woosh! Missed me by `that much`! (Maxwell Smart voice)
