Asteroid 2012 DA14 passes close to Earth
An asteroid as large as an Olympic swimming pool has passed close to the Earth at a distance of just 27,700km. This has been the first time ever that an object of that size passed close to the Earth.
Even though it passed closer than predicted to the Earth, there were no risks of impact.
This asteroid event came just a few hours after a meteor event which left hundreds of people injured in Russia.
