Yeah, another asteroid....this one will be coming to within 25,000 miles.
About 1/10 the average distance from the earth to the moon.
Astronomers found it Aug 31 2014.
This asteroid is, just for reference, just a bit bigger than the one that entered the atmosphere and exploded over Chelyabinsk, Russia.
It'll pass just over New Zealand on Sept, 7th.
What if it hadn't been detected? What if it were to hit us?
Bad things would occur. How bad depends on how it hits, and how fast...What angle will make a big difference as to the damage.
And, of course, having some knowledge beforehand....
