Asteroid TU24 passes earth (apologies for last video)

Hi guys,
the video i posted before was misleading and poorly researched, it was possibly a different meteor or a fragment that just happened to appear that day.
The 600-meter-long Asteroid 2007 TU24 has passed the planet Earth, providing astronomers with a chance to monitor the minor planet. Although the asteroid quickly became fainter as it moved away from the Earth, NASA could closely monitor it to determine whether it was solid or simply a loose pile of space rubble.

It's no problem. The other video was cool too. :)
