Safeway-size asteroid to get closer to Earth than satellites

Here's something to watch for in the sky on the 15th.


Quote:
An asteroid big enough to level a major metropolitan area (probably several of them, actually) will definitely not be doing any such thing this month, but it will come pretty darn close.

First spotted by a Spanish observatory last year, small asteroid 2012 DA14 (in this case "small" means about 150 feet in diameter, or roughly the size of a supermarket) will pass within 3.5 Earth radii of the surface of our planet on February 15.

Safeway is a grocery chain here in the States. Oh wait, I messed up.... Brink is in the States and probably knows that.
