1972 Asteroid Near Miss

I would've shit myself if i was the filmer This asteroid was 57 kilometers away from Earth at it's closet point that day. Luckily the angle at which it entered the atmosphere caused it to "skip" off of it like a rock on the surface of a pond/lake. But in doing so, also had it's trajectory permanently altered. (couldn't find english version)
