A 1,300 feet-wide space rock called 2005 YU55 came in close contact with the earth at 6:28 pm (East Coast Time) tonight!
This asteroid is traveling at 29,000mph. It is within 201,000 miles away from us.
That is closer than the moon!
No need to worry because there is no chance that it will hit us. You would need a really good telescope to see it.
The last one that was this close was in 1976.
