2012DA14 a "forseeable" close approach
03/05/12 at 10:08:26
 
2012DA14 is known to make a close approach with Earth in less than one year from now.  
In this animation , having 5 frames with an interval of 1 year , starting in januari 2009 one can see the asteroid coming closer to Earth each year .  
Remarkable .  
Even more remarkable is the slingshot the asteroid gets at his close approach , although it dosn't come closer than 0.002 AU , much further than 2004MN4 ( Apophis ) will get .
