I'm pretty excited about seeing this if it happens. The chanes of an impact will get higher early next month once they have a better grasp on its trajectory.

If they don't know yet if it will impact mars then a close fly by could change the orbit of it so it is on track to make a collision with an other object, maybe earth in 2011.

The Martians will zap it first with their ray guns.
