The asteroid Apophis was discovered by astronomers in 2004. Upon its discovery, it appeared that it was going to come pretty close to striking Earth in 2029 when it was passing by in its orbit around the sun. However, upon closer observation, it appears that we might be in the clear after all. Astronomer and blogger Bob King, also known as Astro Bob, joined host Kelly Schoenfelder on the January 11 edition of The Roadhouse to tell us more about the news.
