Well this is certainly good news... Asteroid 2004 MN4 will miss
Earth in 2029!
Over the past week, several independent efforts were made to search for
pre-discovery observations of 2004 MN4. These efforts proved successful today
when Jeff Larsen and Anne Descour of the Spacewatch Observatory near Tucson,
Arizona, were able to detect and measure very faint images of asteroid 2004
MN4 on archival images dating to March 15th, 2004. These observations extended
the observed time interval for this asteroid by three months allowing an improvement
in its orbit so that an Earth impact on April 13th, 2029 can now be ruled out.
