    Its supposed to only pass us, not hit us.
    Ummm what? If our moon gets moved out of place, it could cause a lot of problems for us on earth(tides messed up, other natural stuff screwed up).

    We'll be fine. The comet isn't going to hit us, it's just going to be in our solar system. Even if it does hit us, the damn thing's only 3-4 kilometers wide (1-2 miles wide for us imperial measurement users).

    Though it would be hilarious to have the comet hit the guy that said that Pluto wasn't a real planet. Divine punishment! :lol

    Small ones. Now I'm no moon expert, but if this were to hit it, I believe it could cause some serious problems. (But its not going to hit the moon)

    I do not think this would be a big enough space-snowball to move the moon out of place, though it would likely leave one wicked crater in the surface. On the plus side, we would then know for sure there was water on the moon, right in that crater.

    Its moot though, since it's going to miss the moon too.

    Yes, and those craters were formed over billions of years, during which time numerous asteroids have hit earth as well. The earth is a much bigger target than the moon. It would be like trying to stop paintballs with your hands. Also, remember the moon has no atmosphere, so there's nothing to cause an extralunar/terrestrial object to burn up/shrink/slow down before impact due to atmospheric friction.
