Small Asteroid Flies-By Closer Than Many Satellites | Video

Discovered only a day before its close fly-by of the Earth, asteroid 2012 KT42's closest approach was a mere 8,700 miles; a little more than 1 Earth-diameter away. It poses no threat but is the second last minute discovered asteroid in as many days.
