What about the meteor that is heading toward earth?

The Earth is hit by thousands of meteors every day. Most are too small to be noticed, but occasionally a big one can make quite a flash.

Scientists rarely have any advance knowledge of meteors before they hit; they are too small, too dark, and too fast. But there is one asteroid that is big enough to see which will come close to the Earth. But it will miss. We think.

The asteroid Apophis will pass near the Earth in 2029 and 2036.
