Hi,
I don't think it is, might have been another near miss tho.

1 AU is the distance from the earth to the Sun.

Often during such weder my back garden looks as if its been hit by a mini-tornado. How many near misses have we had so far? Next may send us to da moon.

Fron Blackhat's link: "On April 13, 2029, it will be about 22,600 miles (36,350 kilometers) from Earth's center. That is just below the altitude of geosynchronous satellites, which hover in fixed perches above the planet to communicate with and collect data on half the globe at all times."

April 13 2029 is, I believe a Friday too - a black Friday. I do hope they've got their estimates right that it will miss.

jz, well spotted, it will be friday 13th click here

A few more Friday 13th's before then though! And many more near earth objects yet undiscovered.

Plenty of other things to worry about meantime.

for us to see it........
This one is brightest for 40 years and of course the north east skies are cloud covered - so waste of time getting my camera our ;(
