Default Have you heard about Asteroid 2007 TU24?


Appears Asteroid 2007 TU24 will be passing by Earth tomorrow or Tuesday.

Quote:
On the night of closest approach, Monday-Tuesday (Jan. 28-29), the asteroid is predicted to be 11th magnitude or brighter all night for viewers in the Americas, making it visible in small telescopes and large binoculars.

Not much news about it, so I think they may be a bit concerned about it.

Some are saying that Earths gravity could pull it in. I don't think so, but worth watching next couple of nights.
