    Link for a source? That seems too close, like it would do some bad things to Earth. But then again, I am no cosmologist.

    Considering that geosynchronous satellites orbit about 24,000 miles above the surface of the Earth, yeah that seems pretty damn close.

    That's right and exactly what it means "With-in Satellite orbit radii !
    The scale of said Asteroid is approximately the size of perhaps two Rail-road box cars , so not very large .

    To even see it is suggested very good binocs or telescope is needed .

    If one that size hits earth, it would certainly be catostrophic.

    I don't think a 45m asteroid would pose a significant threat to a planet.

    Ever hear of a tsunami?

    No, not an ELE, but still significant.

    The impact sight near Winslow, AZ was created 50,000 years ago by a similar sized meteorite. It is estimated to have impacted at 13 meters/second or 28,000 mph. The crater is 3/4 of a mile across and 570 ft deep.
    If you see it coming, duck and cover.

    The whole planet? No. But, one 5-10m, will produce an explosion similar to the bomb dropped on Hiroshima. And were talking 45m? That would be catastrophic for many miles from the center. I wouldn't want to be in the same state.
