The new asteroid, XE54 discovered just last week, came “a little too close for comfort,” within 140,000 miles of our planet. It came “about as close to crashing into Earth as an asteroid possibly can, without actually doing so,” according to The Washington Post. Astronomers say that XE54 was small enough that most of it would have burned up in the atmosphere but Space.com noted that the fact that it was not spotted until it was basically upon us is a “troubling sign.” http://www.forbiddenknowledgetv.com/videos/space/asteroids-toutatis-and-xe54-pass-close-to-earth.html
