The Russian Meteor crash of last night made today’s event of a meteor called 2012 DA14 passing by all the more important. The good news is it did not impact the Earth, just flew by.

Russian Meteor Vapor Trail Asteroid 2012 DA14 has safely passed by Earth, according to NASA. The closest approach was 17,500 miles above Indonesia. “It has passed closest approach and this asteroid is going away,” said Paul Chodus of the NASA Near Earth Object team.

The asteroid is estimated to be about 150 feet (45 meters) across with an estimated mass of 130,000 metric tons. Its flyby was the closest ever for an object this large, according to NASA. But that doesn’t take in the Russian Meteor episode of last night.

Strange reporting.

Stay tuned.
