Giant Asteroid 2005 YU55 Comes Close Next Week

Giant Asteroid 2005 YU55 Comes Closer to Earth Than Moon Next Week | Asteroid 2005 YU55 Photos, Asteroids & Comets | Near-Earth-Objects, Asteroid Risk to Earth | Space.com

Quote:
A huge asteroid about the size of an aircraft carrier will zoom past our planet next week, flying between the Earth and the orbit of the moon when it flies by on Tuesday (Nov. 8).
Later on people will ask "Where were you when the asteroid flew past?". At least I hope they will.

Thanks for that first link. I've been hearing from some of the foil hat crowd that it's going to pass BETWEEN earth and the moon and that's clearly NOT what's going to happen.
