"2005 YU55, also written as 2005 YU55, is a potentially hazardous object[2] that is 400 meters in diameter."

"In February 2010 it was rated 1 on the Torino Scale. On 19 April 2010, highly accurate radar targeting by the Arecibo radio telescope reduced uncertainties about the orbit by 50 percent.[4] This improvement eliminated any possibility of an impact with the Earth for the next 100 years.[4] It was removed from the Sentry Risk Table on 22 April 2010.[5]"

So, wiki says the diameter is 400 feet, not 1500 and that any possibility of impact was eliminated in April of last year- the page at wiki was modifed last week--why the contradictory info?

Because I clearly stated it's 1,500 feet in diameter. 400 meters is about 1,300 feet. Wiki says it's slightly smaller, where as NASA says about 1,500 feet on their JPL. Nothing contradictory here. And of course it would state it's not going to hit the earth. However, they are sending a ship to the moon now to test it's gravitational pull for a reason. They are wondering what this things can do. so am I.
