According to scientists, the size of the asteroid may range from 9 to 28 meters. If so, in this case it is better to refer to the celestial body as a meteorite, rather than an asteroid.

The asteroid was discovered by Tenagra Observatory in Arizona, and was given the code 2012 TV. The asteroid flew 254,000 kilometers far from the Earth, which was 0.6 of the distance to the Moon.
