The object, designated 2004 FH, is roughly 30 meters (100 feet) in diameter and will pass just 43,000 km (26,500 miles, or about 3.4 Earth diameters) above the Earth's surface on March 18th at 5:08 PM EST (2:08 PM PST, 22:08 UTC).

**It, and other small Earth Asteroids will continue
to keep the newly formed 'LINEAR Team' (hopefully)on their toes.
