sorry... javacrap cannot be added to an existing post, what a nightmare.
so this is the end result - daves stupid remarks etc or whatever got lost in the (cannot call it a) process.
AND You have to ask the question WHY is every object measured miss distance in LD (lunar distance), is it like that movie.... SOMETHING HITS THE MOON? and a Piece Hits Earth????
Is that what all the impact in the Puerto Rico area is all about???
Nah! just one of my normal way out there comments!
Nah, couldn't ever happen!
Just a thought though... why not AU or Miles or Kilometers OR INCHES???
Calm down! Ok.

Notes: LD means "Lunar Distance." 1 LD = 384,401 km, the distance between Earth and the Moon. 1 LD also equals 0.00256 AU. MAG is the visual magnitude of the asteroid on the date of closest approach.
