Don't consider this a count-down to doomsday, but on February 15 an asteroid is going to come pretty close to Earth.
And this is only one of thousands of objects that are destined to one day enter our neighborhood in space.
"There are lots of asteroids that we're watching that we haven't yet ruled out an Earth impact, but all of them have an impact probability that is very, very low," Don Yeomans, manager of the Near-Earth Object Program Office at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, said at a press briefing.
This particular asteroid is called 2012 DA14. NASA scientists reiterated Thursday that people have nothing to worry about.
