Close Call Asteroid

I may be pretty late at seeing this but i apologise i have been at work.

Here be some kinda doom...

It seems there may have been certain doom tommorow (Monday 27/06/11) as there has been a giant asteroid spotted heading our way.

The space rock is going to just miss us but will reach within 11,000 miles of the surface. Apparently the telegraph states it as coming '23 times closer than the moon' to me that doesn't make sense, but anyway the asteroid will reach within 11,000 miles of the surface which is close enough to be spotted by some telescopes. Even if it did enter the atmospere an asteroid expert has said 'We are certain that it will miss us, but if it did enter the atmosphere, an asteroid this size would mostly burn up in a brilliant fireball, possibly scattering a few meteorites.' Which is good by me. This asteroid was only spotted wednesday in New Mexico and is only between 10 and 50 yards wide. Another asteroid has been spotted to come by on November 8th and from what experts say it is 400 metres wide weighing 50 million tons and is expected to fly within the moons orbit, this will pass by at a distance of 201,000 miles thankfully.
This one is the largest object to approach us so close that folks know about.

Phew... Article read from Here! To be honest though this original artice does make with the fear-mongering.
