The potentially dangerous asteroid streaking by last night missed striking Earth.  It’s about the size of three football fields. The EM26 Asteroid passed  just 8.8 moon distances away from Earth. That’s 15 times closes than the closes planet.  

At 6 p.m., 2000 EM26 —an 885-foot in diameter, “potentially dangerous” asteroid — grazed only two million miles away from Earth, a small measure when dealing with astronomy. 2000 EM26 could wipe out multiple cities had it been on a collision course.  NASA wants the public to be more award of these dangers from Asteroid.
