Comet NEOWISE is currently --,---,--- (--,---,---) from us, getting - (-) closer to us every second. It flies past Earth at ---,--- km/h (--,--- mph).

Since last night Comet NEOWISE (C2020 F3) is 163,000 km (101,000 mi) closer to us. Since you started looking at NEOWISE page it is 0 km (0 mi) closer.

Since last night Comet Swan (C2020 F8) is 163,000 km (101,000 mi) closer to us. Since you started looking at this page it is 0 km (0 mi) closer.

Will it hit or miss Earth?

New radar and optical data has since reduces the odds a bit, and the current estimation is that in 2029 Apophis will pass near us at only 31,300 km (19,449 Mi).

This is less than a tenth of the distance to the moon, too close for comfort? At least we don't come eye to eye with minor planet number 99942. It weights 61,000,000,000 kg and it's approach speed is a breathtaking 32,624. An impact would be similar to exploding the entire global nuclear arsenal of about 15,000 nuclear weapons, at once.
