When did Asteroid 2012 TC4 fly past and how close was it to hitting Earth?

PLANET Earth experienced a very close encounter with a space rock – the size of a HOUSE. The asteroid was watched by astrophysicists as it zoomed past at a distance of about 27,300 miles, which is an eighth of the distance from the Earth to the Moon, according to the European Space Agency.

is there any chance it will hit earth? Every time a meteorite ends up on (or under) Earth's surface, that's because an asteroid actually hit Earth (0 is a lot closer than 6 million miles). There are a few of those every year. Back in 2013, one asteroid was extensively filmed as it hit the atmosphere above Chelyabinsk, in Russia. There are some videos of asteroids skipping on Earth's atmosphere and bouncing back into space. One such video was taken by a spectator at a ball game. That asteroid "missed" the surface by 400 miles or so (400 is a lot closer than 6 million). In the article, all it says is that this December will be the closest approach for THAT asteroid... in the last few years (even this asteroid has been closer to Earth in earlier passes). Phaethon did not even make the sentry list of asteroids with a chance of hitting Earth in the next 100 years (even if that "chance" is only one-in-a-million). What makes the news item interesting is that NASA (and other agencies) plan to take radar images of Phaethon. This is rather special (for astronomers) because it is not that easy to take a radar image of an object located at 6 million miles, zooming by at speeds in the tens of thousands miles per hour. Don't forget: this thing will pass 27 times further away than the Moon... and that is already quite far.
If dinosaurs really died from an asteroid explosion why didn't it burn up in the atmosphere like all others that fall every day? The larger the asteroid, the more likely it is to survive the trip from the top of the atmosphere. The rock that hit 65 million years ago was about 6 miles in diameter. That means when the leading edge was hitting the surface of the Earth, the trailing edge was as high or higher than Mt. Everest - and it all came barreling in. While the effects from the impact wiped out 90 to 95% of the land animals on Earth, not all life was obliterated. Crocs and Alligators are usually close-to-water creatures, and this could've helped in their survival.
Okay I am scared I have read on the internet that nasa says a asteroid will wipe earth in the year 2036 can somebody please is this real? Nasa has been misquoted. As usual. What they say is that there are many asteroids in space. Occasionally one of them will fly close by the Earth. Due to uncertainties in measurement, it is not possible to predict exactly how close a particular asteroid may come. The best that can be done is to provide the chances of the asteroid coming within a given distance. The asteroid you mention has been predicted to have far less than a one percent chance of collision with Earth. Compared to the highly probable chance of nightmare scenarios caused by man's mismanagement of the planet and it's resources, asteroids are the least of your worries. If you are truly worried about your survival, you will need to study statistics related to survival, and live accordingly. The best advice is still: don't smoke, get some exercise, eat plenty of fruit and veges, minimize exposure to sun, practice safe sex, be aware of your surroundings, avoid toxic chemicals, wear a helmet while in a motor vehicle, and maybe invest in a survival shelter and stock up on canned food. Cheers!
If the Moon was completely or partially destroyed, would it change life on Earth? If there were an asteroid collision into the Moon that was anywhere close to being able to destroy it the amount of debris thrown up would bombard the Earth the likes of which it hasn't seen in 3.8 billion years. The surface of the Earth would be barren slag.
What about the asteroid? Not one weatherman/woman is even mentioning a huge asteroid that is getting very close to us this weekend.?
What would you do the day before an Asteroid hit the earth? How big an asteroid, and where does it hit? As it is, Earth routinely scoops up ton of asteroid debris each and every day. Or, if you want to play with the numbers -
