It will be this one https://earthsky.org/astronomy-essentials/asteroid-52768-1998-or2-april-2020-how-to-see

The reason no one has worried too much about it is that it should miss earth by almost 4 million miles!

Which in astronomy terms may be something to get excited about but for the vast majority of us not so much.

"The orbit of this asteroid is well known for at least the next 200 years. Its closest approach to Earth in this century and the next will happen in 2079, when it’ll swoop to within about a million miles of Earth (still about four times farther away than the moon)"

Not particularly note worthy, unless your researching it I guess. Earths not in any grave danger as yet!

Now, now, let's not be causing people to panic. All sorts of stuff heads towards us from space but misses by millions of miles. We're quite a small lump of rock in a very big space! Rest assured if anything was on a collision course for Planet Earth, Bruce Willis is on standby.

Anyway, to more important issues - I thought you were talking about the game. They were the days; when you didn't need a portable device more complicated than a space shuttle just to play games.

My first thought was the game too, before I clicked onto the topic. Such a great game.
