Think the government would say anything if it actually was going to hit earth?

I was surprised at how close it's going to get to the earth.

Only 17,000 miles out which is much closer than the Moon and within satellite orbit range.

I bet many people on here have no idea how many miles separate the Earth from the Moon.
