Asteroid whizzing by Earth six times closer than the moon – Feel Safe? It’s The 3rd This Year

Asteroid whizzing by Earth six times closer than the moon – CNET

“The problem with asteroids passing near Earth is they’re often difficult to spot.

 

….This is the third asteroid to buzz by earth closer than the distance to the moon this year. We don’t expect a closer pass by one of these visitors until October, when asteroid 2012 TC4could come more than twice as close”

I love that, ‘we don’t expect’ part.
