The closest approach is expected to be at 3:33 a.m. ET.
The asteroid TU24 is one of an estimated 7,000 so-called near-Earth objects.
An actual collision of a similar-size object with Earth occurs on average every 37,000 years.
Spotted in October by the NASA-funded Catalina Sky Survey in Arizona, TU24 is estimated to be 500 to 2,000 feet long.
If you can’t tust a conspiracy theorist to get the DATE right, let alone the time, why bother?
I will go to bed tonight and sleep well, knowing that I am safe as long as I have my tin-foil hat on.
