The asteroid 2012 DA14 is marked with a red circle in this handout image taken by Argentine's Gloria Project researchers and distributed by Spanish Research Council (CSIC), February 15, 2013. The asteroid, some 150 feet (46 meters) in diameter will pass close, but safely, by Earth on February 15, 2013. Although asteroid 2012 DA14 is the largest known object of its size to pass this close, scientists say there is no chance of an impact, this week or in the foreseeable future. (REUTERS/CSIC/Handout)
