    Big asteroid to zoom by Earth on Jan. 26

    http://www.foxnews.com/science/2015/01/15/big-asteroid-to-zoom-by-earth-on-jan-26/?intcmp=features

    This asteroid will pass only 745,000 miles away. Close call. It is 1,800 feet in diameter so it is big.

    I know that in astronomical circles that is a close pass, but 745,000 miles away doesn’t seem all that close to me. I am really glad that they are always watching for what might be headed our way though.
