At 6.5 feet in diameter, it is not considered as a potential danger, but the space agency is monitoring it and other such asteroids nonetheless. It was first seen on November 3, 2018, and was last seen 13 days later. A recent poll showed that Americans prefer a space program that focuses on potential asteroid collisions rather than sending people back to the Moon or Mars.

There is one.  Part of the Space Force's mission is to monitor these things.  I also have no faith in "polls".
