Breaking News!

Edit: Whoops!  A day late.  As a consolation prize,

Asteroid 2008 TC3 will become meteor 2008 TC3 when it hits the Earth's atmosphere.

However, 2008 TC3 is only a few meter across and will burn up in the atmosphere, creating an impressive fireball.  It's expected to enter the atmosphere at quarter to three in the morning GMT over Sudan.

As an added comfort, 2008 TC3 was only discovered less than 24 hours ago, not even enough time to send up roughnecks with mining equipment and secret space shuttles.
