A small recently discovered asteroid will zoom past the Earth on the evening of Monday 27 June 2011 Australian time. At its closest at about 11 pm AEST it will be 12 000 km above the Earth’s surface. There is no risk whatsoever to anyone on Earth. However, as the asteroid will pass within the ring of geosynchronous satellites, there is an extremely small risk of damage to one of those.
