I just read this article at cnn.com anout a city sized asteroid that could hit Earth on Sep. 29, 2004. You can read the article at www.cnn.comcnn.com (http://www.cnn.com/2004/TECH/space/05/04/asteroid.miss/index.html). Read the article and tell me what you think?

The article says it all. A large asteroid will make a sort of close pass to the earth, going only four times the distance to the moon away from us. On the internet it turned into a false rumor that the asteroid would hit us. This has appeared on this forum in some other threads.
