400 Meter Asteroid Will Approach Earth On November 8, 2011
The asteroid will be visible at around 11:28pm to the people in the northern and southern hemispheres. Is it going to hit earth or what? Are we all going to die?! Well...

This Asteroid, named YU55 will collide with earth on 11.8.11-hahaha, did I say collide? I meant pass by. Scientists thought it was "potentially dangerous" but we are smarter now that it's 2011 and we know it's no threat.

YU55 was discovered back in 2005 by scientists at the University of Arizona. Many scientists are eager for it to get here already, you know, so they can do experiments and stuff. Don Yeomans, a guy from NASA says:
"During its closest approach, its gravitational effect on the Earth will be so minuscule as to be immeasurable. It will not affect the tides or anything else."
Those NASA people know their Science. So I guess there wont be no cool strong wind blowing by as you watch it pass... :\
For now we can check out this nifty gif that gives you an idea of how close it's going to get to earth:
