On the same day that the 40 meter-long asteroid named "2012 DA14" is scheduled to skirt around our planet, a meteor hits a lake in Russia injuring thousands from flying debris cause by the blast. About 3,000 buildings have sustained damage

 Many of the details are still unclear as to the conditions surrounding the meteor strike and the numbers of injured and any possible deaths. But surely many people will find it very odd that this strike happened, without warning, on the same day we're expecting DA14. It makes you start to wonder: how many are out there, where they are and when and will they hit? The problem is we only know the locations of about 1% of asteroids and meteors.

Considering that we don't know were 99% of asteroids and meteors are, maybe we should rethink those NASA cutbacks? I think it would be nice to know if something from outer space is coming toward me. If those people could had been warned with plenty of time, maybe they could have avoided the incident and instead grabbed a front row seat to nature's cosmic show?

For those of you who wish to watch the DA14 asteroid tonight, the best viewing times will be tonight between 18:00 and 22:00 GMT, you must use binoculars to get a good view the object. It will be seen best in Australia, Asia and Europe.
