They snuck this one in, it wasn´t on the list yesterday. You have to watch the list for changes, it can change every day.

Given the estimated size of only 10-23 meters, perhaps it was just discovered.

(2005 VN5) 2005-Nov-12 0.0035 1.3 10 m - 23 m 6.58

[link to liftoff.msfc.nasa.gov]

Parameters:

Distance from Impact: 1.00 km = 0.62 miles
Projectile Diameter: 23.00 m = 75.44 ft = 0.01 miles
Projectile Density: 3000 kg/m3
Impact Velocity: 6.85 km/s = 4.25 miles/s
Impact Angle: 45 degrees
Target Density: 2750 kg/m3
Target Type: Crystalline Rock

Energy:

Energy before atmospheric entry: 4.48 x 1014 Joules = 107.12 KiloTons TNT
The average interval between impacts of this size somewhere on Earth is 19.7 years
Atmospheric Entry:
The projectile begins to breakup at an altitude of 39500 meters = 129000 ft
The projectile bursts into a cloud of fragments at an altitude of 16500 meters = 54000 ft
The residual velocity of the projectile fragments after the burst is 3.57 km/s = 2.21 miles/s
The energy of the airburst is 3.27 x 1014 Joules = 0.78 x 10-1 MegaTons.
No crater is formed, although large fragments may strike the surface.

hi Die Bunker,

Interesting!

From the first link you gave:

Each day as many as 4 billion meteoroids, most miniscule in size, enter earth´s atmosphere. Most of these meteors burn up from atmospheric friction and never reach the ground. Only a few larger and more dense meteors reach the earth´s surface and make an impact.

damned 4 Billion a day? Good Gravy! No wonder Informer (I think it was) always said...

WATCH THE SKIES...SOON!

LD = Lunar Distance
1.3 means it will pass a little farther away than the moon

that is close

This one´s orbit runs close to the elliptic, just inside Venus´s orbit to just outside Earth´s orbit. There´s another close approach to the Earth in Jul 2013, and another in jul 2022. It also has three close calls with Venus before 2022. Wouldn´t all these close calls effect it´s orbit???

You are always wrong. As you did not specify that an asteroid would pass by, don´t pretend that you meant it. If you had known about it, you would have told us it was an asteroid.
