There is no such prediction: it is not known when an asteroid will hit Earth. There are only some estimations, every how often asteroids up to a certain size will hit Earth, but no specific date.

When is the next asteroid predicated to hit earth?

As far as I know, there are no specific predictions. Some asteroids are predicted to pass nearby; the probability of any specific asteroid actually hitting Earth is quite small.

When is an asteroid predicted to hit earth?

At the present time, no major asteroid is predicted to hit Earth. Asteroids with a diameter of about 5 -> 10 m hit the Earths atmosphere about once every year but are vaporised by the atmosphere with the power of a Hiroshima nuclear bomb. Calculating the path of an asteroid is a very tricky procedure and many have been "predicted" to hit - 2002 NT7 (Not too sure is NT7 is Windows 7!) was "predicted" to hit Earth in 2019 but after analysing it's trajectory with greater detail it was removed from the list of "objects presenting a threat".

No asteroid collision is predicted. That's not the same as saying we have a guarantee that it won't happen. But nothing has been observed yet that's on a collision course with earth.

What would happen if an asteroid were going to hit earth?

Just to begin; an asteroid IS going to hit the Earth. We just don't know WHEN. Or how big. Or how fast. The Earth has been hit before - MANY times before - and unless we humans intercept it, another will hit us. Probably not this year or next, but sometime within the next 100,000 years, an asteroid WILL intercept the Earth's orbit. What will happen? That depends on how big it is, and how fast, and where it hits.

Why is a big asteroid next predicted to hit earth?

There are currently no asteroids that are predicted to hit the Earth. Nothing in the sky that is big enough to be visible is likely to hit us. However, astronomers frequently discover nearby objects that are very close indeed. in fact, last October, astronomers located a fairly small asteroid on a collision course with Earth - only 18 hours before it hit. That asteroid, a fairly small object about the size of a small house, exploded over the Sudan without causing any known damage or injury. And last month, astronomers discovered an asteroid that's in a "co-orbit" with the Earth, never very far away and moving in pretty much the same direction. The nearest thing to a "prediction" is the asteroid Apophis, which will come very close to Earth on Friday, April 13, 2029, and again on Friday, April 13, 2036. However, further analysis of the orbit of Apophis indicates that there is only one chance in 40,000 that it will hit.

Could the asteroid belt hit earth?

No. Occasionally an asteroid is knocked out of the asteroid belt and some of those asteroids eventually hit Earth, but the asteroid belt as a whole will not hit us.

Is it true that in 10 years or so an asteroid will hit earth?

Well if you were watching the discovery channel 2 years ago it said that a scientist looked up into space and saw a asteroid heading our way and he predicted it will hit us in 10 years or so if that is true we only have 8 years until it hits. Oh I forgot it also said this asteroid looked bigger than Jupiter.

When is an asteroid next going to hit the Earth?

Many thousands of objects hit the earth every day.It is not possible to predict when an asteroid, large enough to cause significant damage, will next hit the earth.There is no prediction about a specific date. Should any asteroid hit us during the next few centuries, it would come as a surprise. There are general predictions about probability; such as an asteroid above a certain size hitting every so-and-so often (on average).

When is an asteroid next predicted to land on the earth?

The arrival of asteroids is unpredictable; it is doubtful that we would get more than a month's warning, and may be a big one will arrive in the next minute.No one can tell the exact day or time.

Where did the asteroid hit the earth?

What asteroid? There were several.

When is an asteriod next predicted to hit the Earth?

We don't know when the next big asteroid strike on earth will be. But we are sure it will happen. Sooner or later. There will always be a number of predictions out there as regards when we'll get hit again, but until you hear it from a group of astronomers who have done their homework, it would be wise not to worry too much about it. Oh, and those "seers" who say one is coming? They'll be passing the hat or otherwise expecting payment. Use the link below to the related question.
