Here's what I have in my notes:

November 8-9, 2011 - DEEP IMPACT
Asteroid 2005 YU55 To Approach Earth Nov 8 2011
Trajectory of Asteroid 2005 YU55 - November 8-9, 2011
Near-Earth asteroid 2005 YU55 will pass within 0.85 lunar distances from the Earth on November 8, 2011. The upcoming close approach by this relatively large 400 meter-sized, C-type asteroid presents an excellent opportunity for synergistic ground-based observations including optical, near infrared and radar data.

An animated illustration by JPL shows the Earth and moon flyby geometry for November 8th and 9th when the object will reach a visual brightness of 11th magnitude and should be easily visible to observers in the northern and southern hemispheres.

The closest approach to Earth and the Moon will be respectively 0.00217 AU and 0.00160 AU on 2011 November 8 at 23:28 and November 9 at 07:13 UT.

And remember: Fema will do the first ever nationwide EAS "test" on 11-9-11 at 2pm (EST). And it just so happens the United States will be conducting for the FIRST TIME EVER a “NATIONAL EMERGENCY BROADCAST TEST MESSAGE” to the NATION on, you guessed it 11/9/11
