    Notice in looking at this the very small size of the asteroid. Notice how close it will come to Earth. Finally notice where they think the asteroid comes from. Amazing if true.

    Do we have any owners of telescopes? I have two. One reflector and one refractor. I have peered fairly deep into craters on the Moon and when Mars was close, got a good view of that planet.

    Wow, passing closer than some of our satellites.

    That's a bit scary.
