This is very close but they say we are in no danger from it. If it did hit they said its not big enough to destroy the planet just flatten a city. It should provide a good show and hope it doesn't take out any satellites. I hope to get some good pictures.Bottom line: The near Earth asteroid 2012 DA14 will have a very close pass near Earth on February 15, 2013. It will sweep approximately 21,000 miles from us – much closer than the moon’s orbit and closer than geosynchronous satellites. This asteroid is bound to add to 2012 doomsday hysteria, which we can only hope will not carry over too far into 2013.
