You can bet on that. Now, someone said it is disturbing that a late entry can be so close before being detected, that is a fact. there have
been similar threads and fairly recently where "voices from above" have latched on to us with reassurance. That reassurance is good up to a point, but
it is not gospel, and it is not from above, this NASA link gives one optimistic aspect in the WISE project,
then there is the news about this threads subject
You will note that "it poses no threat to earth" "The small asteroid 2011 EB74 was about *47 feet? (14 meters) across and posed no threat of hitting
Earth, since it was too small to survive the trip through the planet's atmosphere."
Then there is another NASA based tale. This time, and they are talking about a 60 pound rock,
“This is the first time our cameras picked up something we thought produced meteorites on the ground,” Cooke said. “If we find the one in
Scottsboro, we know exactly where it came from.” Look at the 'Hunt for meteorites' section,
*Spaceweather.com lists the size as 18m that is nearer to 59ft!
