Close-shaving our planet

For those of you that actually follow my blog (thank you so very much), you may remember my previous entry about 2013 TX68. Now, on National Geographic there is a new and interesting article about the asteroide which will perform a close shave of earth. It’s hiding in the glare of the sun, and it’s passing distance is now calculated to be “somewhere between” 14.000.000 kilometers and 17.000 kilometers. A bit on the close side apparently. I’m still adoment that I will pay my upcoming bills after this one passes.†
