House-Size Asteroid Comes Closer to Earth Than the Moon Friday
The space rock, called asteroid 2012 TC4, is about 56 feet wide (17 meters) and will come within 59,000 miles (95,000 kilometers) of Earth at its closest point when it zips harmlessly by on Friday. That's about one-fourth the distance to the moon.
But you don't have to wait to see live views of the interloping space rock: There are two live webcasts of the asteroid today (Oct. 11). The Virtual Telescope Project and Slooh Space Camera, two groups that offer live telescope views of space via the Internet, will be providing the asteroid imagery.
The Virtual Telescope Project in Italy run by astrophysicist Gianluca Masi will provide a live telescope view of asteroid 2014 TC4 starting at 3:30 p.m. EDt.

I'm more concerned about the number of these they are seeing 2 days before they ZIP past us (harmlessly)

This is I think the 3rd that has done that? in the past 2 months?

I think that's right....

I agree, this is happening a lot more frequently. However, I'm sure the atmosphere can disintegrate the house sized asteroid if it ever changed its trajectory towards Earth.

I don't think the size of this particular asteroid that is at issue....it is the fact that there are several of them lately.....and a great number of them are very late discoveries. We are obviously in some sort of debris field.

An asteroid that's heading straight for ya is hard to spot by astronomers because it wouldn't have any relative motion. It's 2012 - so I'm putting a strike at 99.9% folks...

The atmosphere can only break up car sized asteroids, this size would wipe out a city block depending on speed and density
