Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of National Near Miss Day

Near Miss Day commemorates the day a huge Asteroid nearly missed hitting the earth. 

On March 23rd 1989, 4581 Asclepius, an asteroid the size of a mountain, came within 500,000 miles of a collision with Earth. In interstellar terms, it was a near miss. Had it collided with the Earth, it would have left a devastating crater the size of Washington, D.C. Its effect on the planet would have been catastrophic. Since then, there have been other near misses. 

The Near Miss Day’s origin and the creator are anonymous.
