Another Asteroid —2013 TV135— Passes by the Earth

Ukrainian astronomers reported that asteroid  2013 TV135 passed by the Earth from 4.2 million miles. Some astronomers are predicting a slim chance of a collision with earth when it comes back around again.  If it were to hit, it would be like 2500 HIroshima atomic bombs.

NASA disagrees.  It claims with 99.998 per cent certainty that 2013 TV 135 will miss the earth.
