4th April 2011 : Note on Asteroid 2005 YU55

Asteroid 2005 YU55 is 400 metres in size and will pass between us and the Moon on 8th November 2011. ( No chance of impact)

This will be the closest approach of  an asteroid of this size  to have been detected by us while still so far away from Earth. It also appears this asteroid will pass close by Venus as well.
