Large asteroid to have close call with earth
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- The earth is in for a very close brush with an asteroid the size of a house on Friday.
NASA says "Asteroid TC4" is about 56 feet wide and will come only 59,000 miles of our planet. That's about one-fourth the distance to the moon.
But NASA says the huge rock poses no danger and calls the close-encounter a guaranteed miss.
