Oh, I agree. If there's a legitimately big one on that day, it's time to start muttering 'WTF'. Thing is, the gravitational effect from an asteroid at that distance would be less than from a mouse on the ground, so we'd have to start thinking 'sixth force' or some such. The next question would be - is it just this asteroid, or all asteroids? If it's just this asteroid, time for a space mission to collect the alien technology.
