Headlines:
Massive 'Beast' Asteroid To Hit Earth On Sunday; ‘Potentially Hazardous Asteroid’ Could Release Atomic Bomb Like Energy Upon Reaching Earth; Is Our Planet Safe?


http://www.kdramastars.com/...oid-earth-sunday.htm

But very first sentences-------------The "Beast" asteroid is expected to fly close to Earth.
The massive asteroid which is set to fly by on Sunday, June 8, shortly before 2 a.m. EDT will not be hitting our planet. It's approximate distance will be around three lunar lengths away, or roughly 716,500 miles from Earth.


That writer needs to go to work for WND or National Inquirer.

Whoa, woah, woah! Let's just remember what the purpose of this headline is! Not to inform or educate. Jeez, who thinks that.

The headline did its job. It made you look.
