Toutatis looks something like a dumbbell hurtling awkwardly through space. It has a crazy rotation that makes normal days impossible. Scientists can't explain the shape or the spin, but they're eager to learn more in September when, during the close pass, even backyard skywatchers will be able to spot the asteroid.
Well known path
The orbit of Toutatis is pinned down with better precision than any other large asteroid known to cross Earth's orbit.
Researchers can't predict far enough into the future to rule out Toutatis ever slamming into Earth, so it is listed officially as a Potentially Hazardous Asteroid. NASA says it won't hit for at least the next six centuries.

With all due respect-it feels like you are wrong, too.....
But, I admire your courage in posting!

Interesting, nonetheless, but I will say 'no', I do not forsee a impact happening this September. Just in case though, maybe someone can contact ATARI?
LOL! The great danger in being "exact" is that you will be proven wrong. So much for "psychic" skills. Oxymoron.
