Tis a record breaking approach by an asteroid (that has been measured!) I almost (not being very awake) put hit in the title rather than near miss. Oops! It is coming within 28000 km well within the geostationary satellite belt.
So are we going to have a live mn watch? Apparently you can also see it with good binoculars as it approaches.
And just to whet your appetite, it appears that there was an unrelated meteor/meteorite shower last night with spectacular results, breaking windows and shaking buildings as the meteor exploded over Siberia. There is footage here
What with Pistorius , the Pope, with the lightning strike on the vatican, the horse meat stuff, North Korea exploding a nuclear thingy, the new coronavirus being found to be transmissible from person to person and now the exploding meteor and tonight's earth graze, it's been quite an interesting sort of week hasn't it!
