2005 YU55 is a bowling ball... VS the marble that made the AZ crater
A little perspective here to those that say YU55 is the size of an aircraft carrier. Imagine a toy aircraft carrier in a gumball machine... YU55 is the size of the round plastic container the toy came in, not the size of the toy itself as YU55 is semi-ball shaped.

A little more perspective... YU55 is approx 1300 feet or 400 meters...

The meteorite that made the HUGE crater in AZ was estimated to be 130 feet or 40 meters...

so... if we scaled down that 130 foot AZ meteorite to the size of a large marble (shooter) and did the same for the 1300 foot YU55, we have something about the size of a bowling ball.
Now scale back up to a 1300 foot rock ball screaming toward earth and our moon at 30,000 MPH... how fast is 30,000 MPH? In 2005, YU55 was around 1.5 million miles away...

30,000MPH is 500 miles a minuite, the atmosphere is max 300 miles "thick" that equals 36 seconds from atmo to impact on a direct course.

From what I have researched, if the thing hits land then it will be complete devastation for about 50 miles. If it hits water, then you have to worry about tsunamis.

If you live inland, odds are you will be just fine.
