Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com ) - With more than a thousand people injured in the Russian fireball incident, many are now concerned about other meteors hitting earth.

In fact, an asteroid passed by earth Friday missing us by just over 17,000 miles.

The Duluth News Tribune's astronomy expert, Bob King, says the two are very separate events and are not linked.

He talked to Michelle Lee during the KBJR 6 & Range 11 News at Five.
