Asteroid near miss on February the 15th
Earth is going to have a near miss on February the 15th when a large asteroid will pass very close to us.
Asteroid '2012 DA14' is 45 meters across with a mass of about 130,000 tons. There is no danger of it actually hitting Earth but it will pass below the orbits of TV and weather satellites. It will be a new record for close approach asteroids since sky surveys began in the 1990s.
