Observatory NASA video: Asteroid 2012 DA14 darts past Earth

A massive 130,000-ton asteroid hurtled past the earth, veering
closer to the planet than any known object of its size. The event
transpired on the same day that a meteorite wreaked havoc when it
exploded over Russia's Urals region. NASA kept a watchful eye on the
50-meter-wide asteroid, dubbed DA14, which sailed 17,500 miles above the
Earth on Friday -- much closer than many satellites
