These encounters aren’t all that rare. Such asteroids are known as NEOs -Near Earth Objects, and they are being recorded and tracked.

Since they fall under the category of Space Weather, there are some good links to NEO info on http://www.spaceweather.com -Way

Thats an interesting link.
The ones that are big enough to hurt us, that they see only after they have gone bye are the most thought provoking.
