    We need to ban asteroids right now, before any more come too close! Giant asteroid free zone signs are needed immediately!!![sarca]

    If it outside the Orbit of the Moon, it is a BIG Yawn......
    If it is between the Moon and the Clark Belt, it provokes some light interest...
    If it is inside the Clark Belt, It is of Serious Note....
    If it is inside the orbit of the ISS, I am going to find a CAVE, Real Quick.......

    I notice that the article does NOT specify, that parameter..... ....... YMMV......
