Panic In The Sky: Asteroid To Pass By Earth, Can Be Seen With Binoculars

Jeepers, Chief!

A big asteroid will be passing by Earth tomorrow night and, with good binoculars, people will be able to observe it.

According to Disclose.tv:
January 25, 2015 - An asteroid the size five football fields is approaching Earth and is expected to pass by on Monday. It will be visible through strong binoculars – definitely worth getting; the next time such an asteroid could be this close again will be in 2027. 
At the closest point to the Earth, asteroid 2004 BL86 will be at a distance of 1.2 million kilometers which – approximately three times the distance from the Earth to the moon. Estimated to be 0.5 km in diameter, it is classified by scientists as potentially dangerous.
Above, you won't need a big telescope like this, just a good pair of binoculars.
