    The New York Times Covers Slooh’s Reaction at Totality

    Asteroid 1999 FN53 Makes Close, but Not TOO Close Approach to Earth on May 14, 2015

    The small asteroid called 1999 FN53 makes a close approach to Earth on May 14, 2015, passing within about 6.3 million miles of Earth or about 26x the Earth-Moon distance.
