This week provides another reminder of the reality of that threat, not that Earth’s history doesn’t already provide plenty of warnings.

The record of history, as written in the many impact craters on Earth and the moon, demonstrate that it is just a matter of time before astronomers discover a near Earth object (NEO) headed toward a collision with Earth.

The asteroid 2014 rc will pass below the Earth and the geosynchronous ring of communications and weather satellites orbiting 35,890 km (22,300 miles) above our planet's surface.

Asteroid 2014 RC was initially discovered on the night of 31 August by the Catalina Sky Survey near Tucson AZ, and independently detected the next night by the Pan-STARRS 1 telescope, located on the summit of Haleakala on Maui, Hawaii. Both reported their observations to the Minor Planet Center in Cambridge, MA. Additional follow-up observations by the Catalina Sky Survey and the University of Hawaii 88-inch on Mauna Kea confirmed the orbit of 2014 RC. From its brightness, astronomers estimate that the asteroid is about 20 meters (60 feet) in size.

While 2014 RC will not impact the Earth, its orbit will bring it back to the Earth's neighborhood in the future. Its future motion will be closely monitored but no future threatening Earth encounters have been identified. http://neo.jpl.nasa.gov/news/news184....
