Whoops, I was referencing the other asteroid. My mistake. This one is still one to watch as I said, the Russian asteroid was calculated at 0.07 AU's away.

The Russian meteor was not calculated at 0.07 AU. It's semi-major axis was calculated at 1.55 +/- 0.07 AU. 1.55 AU was essentially its average distance from the Sun, and 0.07 is the error in that calculation.
