Friday's asteroid fly-by wasn't a "Deep Impact" event, but it's the closest approach to Earth for an object in space this large.
Asteroid 2012 DA14 passed by Earth at 2:24 p.m. ET. At its nearest approach, the 150-foot-wide asteroid was 100 miles closer than predicted from the Earth's surface. Still, the asteroid was closer than weather and TV satellites.
NASA said the planet was not in danger from the asteroid, but people may have been on edge since a meteor explosion injured over 1,000 people in Russia earlier in the day.
