What is .0079 in miles
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1289916

One Astronomical Unit ~ 93 million miles ~ 150 million km.

And closest aproach to Earth this year is 0.00217 AU.
It was closer last year.
I don't know where you got 0.0079.

and how will the Earth's gravity affect the object?

It will slightly change its orbit.
It will pass by again on 2015-Apr-08.

How big is it?
