2020 Strikes Again: Asteroid Impact Expected Day Before Election

Talk about timing!

At times, it’s easy to see why Americans are growing into an absurd world of cynicism and angst:  This has been, hands-down, one of the strangest and most infuriating years on record.  Well, at least in the modern era, post-WWII.

We’ve had race-centric unrest.  Violence in the streets.  A global pandemic.  Murder hornets, for Pete’s sake.

Now, right on cue, an asteroid is coming for us.

According to a database from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory’s Center for Near Objects Studies, space rock 2018VP1 will head past Earth on November 2, one day before the U.S. presidential election on November 3.

There is some good news, however.

The rock is 6.5 feet in diameter and is not considered to be a “potentially dangerous” object, but the space agency is monitoring it and other asteroids similar to it. It was first discovered on November 3, 2018, and found again 13 days ago.

Based on the 21 observations of the asteroid NASA has noted, there are reported to be three potential places where it could collide with the Earth.

But NASA has noted that the likelihood of direct impact is very unlikely, with the odds of it hitting the Earth at 0.41 percent.

“Asteroid 2018VP1 is very small, approximately 6.5 feet, and poses no threat to Earth,” a NASA spokesperson told Fox News via email.

Given just how contentious the US presidential election has been, there may be a few among us who would rather 2018VP1 just come and put us out of our misery.
