ok, but when I do the math.
1AU = 150million km
0.0022AU = 330,000km.
Still not seeing where anyone is getting 200km-300km as a distance.
If my math is wrong someone please correct me.

YU55 will be 239,356 kilometers from the moon and 324,627 kilometers from the earth at it's closest approach. Those distances are close in cosmic terms, but it's certainly not 'coming right for us'.
The facts are there for anyone to see. The figures are there for anyone to calculate.

That's ridiculous on a couple levels. First clarify, no just say what this Big Red is. If it is what I think you are referring to that is impossible for us not to have detected it. Second the earth's rotation cannot be stopped by another celestial object and more ridiculously if it could it could not be restarted (either way it can't happen in a relatively short period of time as you suggest). Now go read a real science book and get educated.
