2014 started with the discovery of a new asteroid — 2014 AA, the first asteroid to be discovered in the new year. The Catalina Sky Survey Programme reported the asteroid to the International Astronomical Union on January 1, 2014 at 1 am Universal Time (Greenwich time).

The preliminary orbit calculated by two renowned independent computing centers for astronomy led to the conclusion that the object was only 500,000 kilometers away from Earth. The probability of collision with the Earth was very important for this imprecise orbit. However, it could not be accurately predicted where the object would enter Earth's atmosphere.
