Shows we see little out there yet?

Today, May 28th, newly-discovered asteroid 2012 KP24 is flying past Earth only one-tenth the distance to the Moon. Amateur astronomer Rolando Ligustri photographed the 26-meter space rock during the early hours of May 28th when it was about 350,000 km from our planet: image. Measurements of the asteroid’s orbit confirm that there is no danger of a collision with Earth.
Talk about early warning for us, it's almost gone by without being seen.
