Mountains Out Of Mole Hills - Surprise Asteroid Makes Near-Miss of Earth - Science News Science & Technology Technology News:
"The rock, estimated to be no more than 200 feet wide, zoomed past our planet at an altitude of 40,000 miles at 1:44 p.m. universal time — or 8:44 EST.
Dubbed 2009 DD45, it was discovered only on Friday by Australian astronomers."
Okay -- this story makes it sound like no one knew this was coming .... and it was already 'dubbed' DD45!!!

but NASA has known about it for quite sometime -- in fact its on their webpage of "Upcoming Close Approaches" on their Near Earth Objects page ...

maybe before we all panic -- we should CHECK to see where the information can already be found.

Whoever wrote this story should be put back on CopyBoy duty because they made the news agency that provided it look like absolute FOOLS!
