Someone redirect this.[edit]

No minor planets cross the Earth. Asteroids do so I'm redirecting the article. --Hinata talk 00:29, 27 July 2012 (UTC)

That's just nonsense. All asteroids are minor planets. --JorisvS (talk) 09:15, 27 July 2012 (UTC)

What about the asteroid that became the Chelyabinsk superbolide meteor?[edit]

How about the Earth-crosser, and Earth-collider, the asteroid which became the Chelyabinsk superbolide meteor of February 2013? The article says it was an Apollo asteroid, and researchers seem to have identified the asteroid's orbital trajectory. Where is it in the "List of Earth-crossing minor planets"?

Even if it was not identified, or ever seen, prior to collision with Earth, it seems appropriate it be in the list. Cheers. N2e (talk) 13:32, 6 March 2013 (UTC)
