Asteroid 2004 XP14 to come closest to earth tomorrow.


Or, really, in about 45minutes CST. Slated to pass by earth at about 286,000 miles - slightly farther away the the moon, this body is about 1 1/4 miles large. If it were to hit the earth, the impact would depend largely on where it hit. While a great deal would disintegrate in it's ride to surface, the remainder would be capable of a fair Tsunami or wiping out a small country.

Just another reminder of our place in the universe. Anything could happen tomorrow
