Asteroid Steroid 54509 will pass by the earth on July 25th.It will pass our way within 5LD (Lunar distances) of Earth. It will be apprx. 1.25 million miles from Earth and will be almost twice as bright as Toutatis the much talked about asteroid passing by in Sept.

The asteroid can be tracked @neo.jpl.nasa.gov...

The scientific world has not been talking very much about this one. I wonder why?

Because, its nothing. Its not close enough to even think about. It would be a waste of time to print a sentence about it.

Well, it's a pretty unremarkable asteroid. Astronomers don't rush out to study every object that comes near earth (well, many will drop what they're doing for a nice comet.) They know about this one, and it's been studied before. Nothing has changed since the last pass.

I suspect if you follow a lot of boards, you'll see another round of hysteria about this one from folks who don't understand just how nonexistant the risk is from this one.

Like others have said, there's nothing special in this.

At least for making two threads.
