A previously undetected asteroid the size of a football field just missed the Earth have the distance to the Moon, and no one saw it until the last minute. Closest approach to Earth occurred at around 2:41 a.m. EDT (6:41 UTC; translate UTC to your time) on April 15.

Some hours later, Spaceweather.com reported that an amateur astronomer Michael Jager of Weibenkirchen Austria has posted the video of the asteroid that was recorded when asteroid fly past through the southern constellation Serpens.
This newfound asteroid is nearly three to six times bigger than another recent meteor which broke up over Chelyabinsk, Russia, in 2013.
The asteroid's diameter was estimated to be between 48 and 110 metres, and it was travelling at 106,497kmh. And that particular asteroid was estimated to have produced about 185 times more energy than the Hiroshima atomic bomb, the report said.
