A car-size asteroid just whipped by Earth
By Sarah Lewin Staff Writer   Space.Com


A car-size asteroid was caught on camera just before it approached within 10,100 miles of Earth today April 4 — less than one-twentieth the distance from Earth to the moon.

The 12-foot-wide celestial visitor, called 2017 GM, whipped by at 11.5 miles per second compared to Earth early this morning. Scientists at the Mount Lemmon Survey in Arizona first spotted the asteroid yesterday, and researchers with Virtual Telescope Project and Tengara Observatories also snapped a photo before its closest approach with an Arizona telescope.

     I heard in a space lecture many moons back that our eyes on space cover about 4% of earth's surface.  That means, except for trackable astro bodies (like GM2017) many more go past without us ever knowing.
