Default Close call for Asteroid Impact

Just read this article about asteroid 2012 DA14 passing by earth closer that the orbit of most satellites. Find it pretty interesting, hope the scientists have there math right or we will be dealing with a nice ash cloud

So it'll be zipping closer to the earth than the moon..... I wonder if the scientists did the math on it hitting the moon?

It'll be much closer than the moon. Inside the geo sync satellites even. But the close pass is going to alter it's orbit so it won't be a further issue. Plenty of other rocks and 'dirty snowballs' though!
