45 meter Asteroid to Skirt Very Near Earth on Feb 15
Some real news for a change. The object will miss Earth by about 28,000 km, which is a small fraction of the distance to the moon, but many times the depth of the Earth's atmosphere.
What makes this especially interesting is how closely it follows the fall of a meteorite in Russia only yesterday. "Residents in the city of Chelyabinsk, the largest in the affected region, described a shock wave from the meteorite that blew in doors and smashed glass," according to a WSJ report. About 500 people are said to have been injured.
