ASTEROID FLY BY TODAY AT 2:46PM



Crazy stuff!!!

An asteroid about half the size of a football field will be screaming by the earth at 2:46 PM Eastern today.  It'll be the closest any known object that size has come to the planet. Asteroid 2012 DA14 will pass about 17,200 miles above the planet, closer, in fact, than the ring of TV and weather satellites that circle our fragile home.  Still, NASA insists there's no chance the asteroid will actually hit the planet.

Meanwhile in Russia!

The Urals region of Russia has been rattled by a series of explosions in the sky, sparking panic in three cities, even UFO fears.  According to reports out of Russia a meteorite shower led to a missile salvo from an air defense system, blowing the meteorite apart.  Pieces still reached the ground including one that hit a zinc factory and knocked out cellphones in the area.  Some 20,000 emergency workers have reported responded to the region.
