Whatever happened to the Pyramid-sized asteroid that was supposed to be hurtling towards Earth (and us!) just four days ago?

A gigantic lump the size of the Great Pyramid (which Nasa has christened with the snappy name of Earth Object 2013 MD8) was supposedly zooming towards us just 4 days ago on 24th July - at least that's what it said in the website that I read.

But in the regular press?  No coverage.  Not a mention.  And on TV?   Nix.

So what happened?

How did a nugget the size of the Great Pyramid of Gizah simply disappear?  Or get lost?  Or get ignored?

Has anyone else heard of this massive non-event? Can I come out of my bunker now?
