Asteroid NASA Video: Watch Asteroid DA14 2012 Skim Pass the Earth

150ft-long Asteroid 2012 DA14 is skimming past the Earth, closer than any other near-miss on record. According to Sky News, the huge chunk of rock — so big it could wipe out out London — is travelling closer to the planet than many satellites and it should be visible as "a tiny dot of light crossing the sky" (and there is a "remote possibility" that it could collide with one of more than 100 telecommunication and weather satellites in fixed orbits).
