Asteroids 2017 FN1 and 2017 FM1 were discovered yesterday as they passed between Earth and the moon.
These are not to be confused with Asteroid 2017 FS, which was discovered Sunday as it passed between Earth and the moon.
But all  were smallish asteroids.
At worst, if one of them had hit Earth, it would have destroyed an area only as large as, say, the Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Fla.
To take a random example.
