Space - Asteroid 2012 DA14 Close Approach 15th Feb 2013
« on: February 11, 2013, 06:18:53 PM »
2012 DA14 is an approximately 40 meter diameter asteroid that will make a close approach to Earth in early 2013. Contrary to some reports on the web, there is no danger of it hitting us during this encounter. This visualization shows the trajectory of the asteroid as computed by JPL's HORIZONS ephemeris service. As more observations of the 2012 DA14 are made, the trajectory may be revised.

Stop Press: It did not hit Earth!
