December 23, 2012: Whoa!

If you felt a breeze ruffle the back of your neck early on December 11, maybe it was newly discovered near-Earth asteroid 2012 XE54, which came closer to Earth than the Moon. (How newly discovered? Try December 9.)

Luckily for all of us, it missed Earth. This time. We'll see it again in late 2015.
