Five visitors are reported moving inside ten lunar distances (LD) of Earth today. Risk-listed 2012 CS46 is calculated with great uncertainty to exit Earth's Hill sphere while further out, 2012 DS32 travels from 6.59 to 4.62 LD, radar target 2012 DX13 departs from within ten LD, moving from 8.91 to 13.84 LD, 2012 DN31 comes inside, moving from 10.46 to 9.45 LD, and 2012 DM32 leaves ten LD, passing from 9.91 to 11.38 LD.
Headed our way, 2012 DR32 arrives inside ten LD on March 1st and 2008 EJ85 arrives inside ten LD on March 4th.
