An Asteroid Will Be Coming Within 22,000 Miles Of Earth

Fans of asteroids and close-calls will want to mark April 13th, 2029 on their calendars. It’s that day when “99942 Apophis” will be screaming past Earth at a distance of less than 22-thousand miles away. While that might not sound all that impressive, consider this: The Moon is 238,855 miles away. If you’ve ever wanted to physically see an asteroid, this could be your shot…just haveBruce Willison speed-dial just in case.
