The object, known as 2007 TU24, is expected to whiz by Earth on Tuesday with its closest approach at 334,000 miles, or about 1.4 times the distance of Earth to the moon.

Asteroids are coming and going near the Earth but they do not cause great havocs as we are afraid of or imagine! Even sky labs are falling sometimes they are entering the seas of the world! so, nothing to worry about. It is a natural phenomena happening regularly in the Vast Universe!
