All I was saying is that earth attracts more ''debris'' (generally more mass = more attraction to space debris = more chances to get hit), but that doesn't mean the moon doesn't also get hit, since it also depends on the objects trajectory, speed, etc.

Even much smaller asteroids have craters from impacts

It turns out that 2014 UR116 may actually have first been discovered in 2008 (given the designation 2008 XB).

In any case, with 300 observations, it has become apparent that 2014 UR116 poses no impact risk for at least 60 years.

I love it when science wins.
It gives you faith that there are some things we really do understand.

Personally, I am far more worried about the HTC 2014 which is approaching Earth from behind the Sun:

HTC stands for "Huge Chocolate Teapot". ;-)

This is a brilliant video that exposes how ridiculous these doomporn Youtube videos are.

In that software, you can place an object in the ephemeris, and then look at the sky from any location.
