(214869) 2007 PA8
(214869) 2007 PA8 is an Apollo near-Earth asteroid roughly 1.6 km in diameter that came within 6.5 million km (4 million miles, 17 lunar distances) of Earth on November 5, 2012. It was discovered on August 9, 2007 by LINEAR. It was studied by the 70 m (230 ft) Goldstone Deep Space Network antenna as it came near Earth, which resulted in radar images and other data about the asteroid, such as its rotation rate. It has an Apollo type orbit and is classified as a potentially hazardous asteroid (PHA).
