I don't know if this has already been posted, please mods remove in this case.

An asteroid named YU55 will graze our planet later this year and it's a huge one:


A giant asteroid will only just miss earth later this year, according to NASA. The huge rock, dubbed YU55, will pass within 201,700 miles of our planet in November. If it crashes into earth the impact would be equivalent to 65,000 atomic bombs, while the crater would be six miles wide and 2,000 ft deep.


It will pass inside Moon's orbit!

Strange that the article would be stating what the OP quotes and then this...


He said in statement: “YU55 poses no threat of an Earth collision over, at the very least, the next 100 years.”

He added: “During its closest approach, its gravitational effect on the Earth will be so minuscule as to be immeasurable. It will not affect the tides or anything else.”
