APOD - Asteroid 2012 DA14

Right in our backyard - the asteroid that just missed us - watch it whiz by us and disappear into the void. This amazing footage was filmed by Daniel Lopez at the Teide Observatory in the Canary Islands. It was selected as the APOD for Feb. 17, 2013. Scientists believe that this asteroid was not involved in the Great Russian Meteor of 2013, seen below.
