This rock has a 2.7% chance of hitting earth in 2029.  Yep, that’s right.  April of 2029.  You have a better chance of getting hit by an asteroid than getting struck by lighting or winning the lottery.

This rock was discovered in 2004 and will pass earth in Jan 2013.

While scientist disagree on how close it will come, take heed.  It is over 1000 feet wide and will pass a mere 9.3 million miles from earth tonight.

If there is an planet killer out there.  This might be it.

Grab a telescope or watch a free webcast online of the show.

Next time it just might be a close up you wont be able to avoid….
