Although I never saw this, I found the trajectory of asteroid (2011 EH) on the JPL site: http://neo.jpl.nasa.gov/orbits/ to perfectly align with Earth as an NEO on 23Aug2013. I'm not surprised this is now showing up as sightings report both in Perth, Australia and Italy.

Someone should investigate this further.
