Ukrainian astronomers say asteroid might collide with Earth in 2032

Asteroid 2013 TV135 discovered by G. Borisov & T. Kryachko Ukranian Observatory (095) on October 8th. Initially it is listed as a Virtual Impactor with a Rating of 1 on the Torino Scale. This is NOT unusual for a new PHA, as at the time these measurements were taken there was only 8 days of arc available. It is expected that further observations will move this off the Torino Scale back to Rating 0 as the precision of the orbit improves over the next few days.

Asteroid 2013 TV135 will make a close approach to earth in the Year 2032 and is 410meters in diameter.
