Many were aware of the potential danger of the asteroid Florence, which barely missed Earth on Sept. 1, 2017, at a distance of about 4.4 million miles. NASA announced that an object they named "2012 TC4" is heading towards the Earth and is expected to make its approach on October 12th and a research shows that New Yorkers will be closer to the object than to Tokyo. 



Asteroid Florence, Sept 1 2017


Just for the clarification sake, the 2012 TC4 is slightly smaller than Florence but it is much denser  than granite! and it is moving too fast. This asteroid is thousands of times heavier than the Chelyabinsk meteorite that devastated an entire Russian city. Based on public records, it will make the closest approach to earth of any other asteroid of its size. Compare a possible impact to a watermelon being shot with a BB gun. In this scenario, 
the BB gun is 2012 TC4 and Earth is the watermelon. It would penetrate the crust hence causing massive volcanic eruptions.
