The asteroid 2012 TC4, which is thought to be between 33 feet and 100 feet (10 to 30 meters) wide, will give Earth a close shave on Oct. 12, potentially coming as close to our planet as 4,200 miles (6,800 kilometers), NASA officials said.

NASA is convinced it will not impact, but say it will skim earth at a distance of about 27,300 miles. At one stage it was feared it could come as close as just over 4,000 miles.

You think we'd ever find out if earth was in the cone of probability of this thing?

Amazing we got to find out about it at all after DOD and Nasa classified close approach asteroids....
