Asteroid 2016 RB1 is about 40 ft long and will safely pass by Earth at a speed of 33,000 miles per hour. It was just discovered on Monday, 05SEP2016.
With such little time between discovery and pass. this highlights how these events require priority pre-emergency planning and pre-preparation by all nations. If an object of this size were to hit a city the size of New York few if any would survive. If an airburst were to occur over such the city, thousands would be killed and several tens of severly injured from the over-pressure shattering glass in buildings.
I expect that this asteroid may have companions so MeteorRATs be on STANDBY; we may have a meteorite fall very soon! Allsky cameras on and ready! Observers! - LunarMeteoriteHunter....Tokyo
