Asteroid will pass closer to Earth than the moon

Get psyched! There's an asteroid headed our way. It will pass by on Tuesday, the asteroid known as YU55 will come closer to our planet than any other asteroid has since 1976.

Scientists say it won't get close enough to us to hit us, but it will come closer to us than the moon. It will come within 201,700 miles of Earth and no closer.

Pretty exciting! I wonder if it will be visible to the naked eye? I mean they say it is about 1,300 feet wide.

Comments anyone?
