  1. Asteroid to 'narrowly' miss Earth as the 550-metre-wide rock hurtles through space at 56,000 kphRead the original story w/Photo

    8 hrs ago | National Post

    Amateur stargazers will have a once-in-a-decade opportunity to see an asteroid 550 metres "narrowly" miss Earth on Jan 26.

Although easily far enough away to be safe, the flyby - at an estimated 56,000 kilometres per hour - counts as a close shave in astronomical terms.
