The sky may be falling. You didn't hear it from us.
The object 2010 KH has been observed only by WISE and currently has a
disgusting orbit: semimajor axis = 3.2 +- 3 AU. In fact, it might not
even be a NEO. However, by using the available data, we have found Virtual impactors, including one in 2015, of course with a very low impact probability (the asteroid could be almost anywhere, thus we cannot exclude that it could be on top of us at some time in the near future).
