RECORD-SETTING ASTEROID FLYBY!
On Feb. 15th an asteroid about half the size of a football field will fly past Earth closer than many man-made satellites. Since regular sky surveys began in the 1990s, astronomers have never seen an object so big come so close to our planet.

The article says that it STRIKES the Earth every 1200 years or so. How can it strike and keep on going?

warning after warning, and the masses dont notice. they will notice, when one day a wave of hot vaporous steam washes over.

how many more warnings we will receive? judging by our aptitude for learning lessons the hard way, i would say not many more.

"Yeomans estimates that an asteroid like 2012 DA14 flies past Earth, on average, every 40 years, yet actually strikes our planet only every 1200 years or so."
Key words there. An asteroid LIKE 2012 DA14 strikes our planet every 1200 years or so, but one LIKE 2012 DA14 flies past us like 2012 DA14 is about to do every 40 years or so.

Sounds more like a meteor shower, not a astroid fly-by.

I cover that starting at about 6:10 here:

Asia and the middle east get the best view (Europe gets a decent look as well). Western US gets left out of the picture pretty much altogether.
