2012 DA14

As you might have noticed (because every network on the planet reported about that), there was a second asteroid just passing earth’s orbit with a minimum distance of around 28000km.

That sounds much, but if you think about that earth is moving with around 30km/s, they missed their annual date by just 15min or so.

Here is a nice broadcast of this event:

Update:
Here is a great video of its fly by:
