Video: Asteroid 2005 yu55 due to fly by this Tuesday!

Dear Commons Community,

The 1,300 foot long, Asteroid 2005 yu55, is due to fly by Earth this coming Tuesday.  While there is no threat of a collision, scientists are interested in this asteroid because it will be coming within the Earth’s orbit.  Actually it will pass between the Earth and the moon.

Here is a quick video with some explanation and its simulated path.
