On Tuesday, January 31, asteroid 433 Eros will come closer to Earth than it has in 37 years, traveling across the night sky in the constellations Leo, Sextans and Hydra. At its closest pass of 16.6 million miles (26.7 million km) the relatively bright 21-mile (34-km) -wide asteroid will be visible with even modest backyard telescopes, approaching magnitude 8, possibly even 7. It hasn’t come this close since 1975, and won’t do so again until 2056!
Although Eros will be making a “close” approach to Earth on Jan. 31/Feb. 1, there is no danger of a collision.

I read in the article you linked that NASA landed a craft on this Asteroid - That I didn't know, very interesting.
Now look out for the crazy doomsday claims, and secret Alien space-Asteroid City!!
