Asteroid To Swing By Earth Is '9 Cruise-Ships Big' | Orbit Animation

Asteroid 1998 QE2 is about 1.7 miles in size and makes an excellent target for radar imaging. It will pass no closer than ~3.6 million miles, but is close enough for the Goldstone and Arecibo telescopes to resolve features as small as 12 feet across.
