Moons of solar system scaled to Earth's Moon

The asteroid described in this news report is much smaller than the smallest moon in our solar system, tiny in comparison, and poses no threat.

 

The asteroid will make the closest pass to earth of any space object since 1976. It’s 1300 feet in diameter and may be visible late in the day on November 8th 2011. News reports indicate there is no imminent threat from the object, which will pass earth at a distance of approximately 200,000 miles away, closer to our moon than to us.
