Asteroid 2012 TC4: the latest observations confirm that it represents no danger to our planet.The 2012 TC4 home asteroid is scheduled to give Earth a close shave on Thursday, October 12, swooshing by our planet at approximately 5:41 UTC 1:41 am EDT at a distance of about 31,000 kilometers 50,000 kilometers. Although there were some concerns that this rocky object could hit Earth, the latest observations confirm that it poses no danger to our home planet at all.The actual distance from the fault is set at about 50,000 kilometers, which makes it a two-year occurrence, a little noticeable, but not really a big problem. There is no danger in your next step or at any time in the near future. Observations reveal that 2012 TC4 is an elongated and fast rotating object that has been known to make many close-to-earth approaches in the past. Space rock orbits around the sun about 1.67 years at a distance of about 1.4 AU. Astronomers estimate that 2012 TC4 has a diameter between 26 to 85 feet 8 to 26 meters. The new calculations indicate that TC4 will safely fly past our planet on October 12, at a distance of about 43,500 kilometers 27,000 miles above the surface, or about one-eighth of the distance to the moon.
