NASA launches online asteroid watch tracker

NASA this week unveiled a new web site that provides data on asteroids and 'other space objects' that come within 4.6 million miles of earth. Its from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory Near-Earth Object Program and the online site is called Asteroid Watch.

Asteroid Watch that will act as a centralized source for information on objects hurtling close to Earth. The site will take note of any asteroids or comets coming within 4.6 million miles of our planet. Site link

Note here they said 'space objects' .. but you can be sure NASA won't report ufos as space objects.

Also i am not sure how this will sit the 'meteor / fireball top secret classification'. Many astronomers and scientists are still upset with the US military after they revealed that
Space rocks that explode in the atmosphere are now classified.

So if a meteor comes we will know about it but after it enters our atmosphere we won't?
Very puzzling...

Maybe because we have crap defences against such thing, so a UFO will have to sacrifice itself (again?) but we aren't allowed to know.
