This object just jumped from a 2 to a 4 on the 10 point Torino impact scale. It was the first object ever rated higher than a 1 and then it was upgraded to a 4 yesterday. Still less than a 2% chance of impact, but it marks a significant rise in threat. Last I knew scientists were only scanning about 3% of the sky, and they kept saying "its the one we don't see that will get us!"

Nothing to worry about, they'll send Bruce Willis and his pack of misfits into space to save the world. :grin:
