Description
According to news reports of a 400 metre asteroid called TV 135 his heading our way.

Asteroid TV 135 current trajectory suggest that it may come close to our planet in 2032.

If like to have a wager the odds of impacting to Earth are 1 in 63,000.


Asteroids come and go some pass us by and we don't even know until they have passed by, although these asteroids tend to be small perhaps the size of a lawnmower or a small car.

I am sure that in the next few years there will be chucks of space debris burning up in the Earth's atmosphere. some fragment may reach the surface. The chances of hitting Earth are slim.

As the asteroid orbit is calculated of the next few years the likelihood of impact may be negotiable.
