Kind of lazy?.....You should write a few lines about what you are posting, probably a mod will tell you that.

Asteroids pass by our planet everyday, why do you consider this one more relevant?

LD is different than AU

1 AU = ~150 million kilometers
1 LD = Lunar Distance = ~384,000 kilometers

There is also a difference in the composition of asteroids compared to comets.

Asteroids are more solid sometimes called "little planets" they do not break up in the atomsphere like comets tend to.
