Its diameter is approximately 325 metres (1,066 ft).[3] As of the December 29, 2012 observation arc, the probability of an April 13, 2036 impact is considered to be 1 in 7,143,000.[4] Of objects not recently observed, there are about ten asteroids with a more notable Palermo Technical Impact Hazard Scale than Apophis.[10] i sure love listening to that guy...he is a hoot
