Information on the Asteroid (35396) 1997 XF11

The Near Earth Object (35396) 1997 XF11 is notable( or notorious) for the fact it became the center of a media firestorm on 11 March 1998 when an IAU Circular and press information sheet incorrectly stated the possibility of it impacting the Earth in 2028. Within a day new calculations where done showing the probability of Earth impact to be essentially zero. However this was after the news media reported the story and old(or incorrect) news stories have away living for long time(this can be a good thing if research is done right). This is why one should aways look for updates when doing any research. Recently this story has made a comeback in blogosphere. To show that (35396) 1997 XF11 is NOT "Being Hidden From the World" I obtain the publicly available orbit and imaged it from AstroCamp Observatory. Nerpio, Spain (MPC Code I89)...and I fond where it should be. Here is the images, background information, and links on (35396) 1997 XF11.

(C) Steven M. Tilley

Note at time of upload 2015 PU228 is  listed on the "Sentry Risk Table"  and the  "NEODyS CLOMON2 risk page"  as  Torino Scale   1. 

HOWEVER this  is NOT a prediction of an  impact  but rather a statement there is insufficient observational data rule out  an impact on 2081-01-15.40  With additional observations this asteroid  will likely  be re-assignment to Torino Scale   0.

Torino Scale

at the time of upload the chance the asteroid will MISS the Earth is 99.9928%
