    I read recently that the Earth has had an increase in asteroid near miss situations.
    So far there have been three such occurrences. With one Asteroid missing the Earth
    by only 500,000 miles!!. This Asteroid was said to be about six miles in diameter, and if
    it had struck the Earth it would have been a major catastrophe for all life on the Earth.!!
