It would be good if they could give an estimated time and viewing area of when it will pass.

BRD 
Better line that thing with foil in case it's a spaceship from another planet on a spying mission.

I wonder if I can convince Kim Kardashian that I would be the only man on the planet to survive and that she should give me a test drive now.   :-\

There is another one almost exactly 2 years later.

An asteroid is about to slip between Earth and the moon — the second near miss in 3 weeks

Business Insider,  Dave Mosher,  January 24, 2017



Depending on where you live, pause for a moment tonight — Tuesday, January 24 at 11:54 p.m. ET — and imagine a rock the size of a truck flying overhead at 4.6 miles (7.4 kilometers) per second.

Then imagine 300,000 much-larger rocks out there that are big enough and moving fast enough to wipe out a major city.

Sleep tight.

No problem, I will.  Look at it this way..  If you are at ground zero, you won't know it anyway.
