YU55 Asteroid Size and Trajectory Video?

The YU55 is an asteroid that was very close to the Earth this month, November 2011.
Nasa has been warning us for several months now about YU55 and they even mentioned it was one of the closest calls ever. Is there a video of the space rock?
What is the size and trajectory of the YU55 asteroid? Was there a chance at any moment of hitting the earth or maybe the moon?
I'm always scared of asteroids, specially the big ones like the YU55 Asteroid. Do you think someday the earth is going to be hit by one of these rocks? Please post a video if you happen to find one.

The U.S. space agency, NASA, said there was no chance that the asteroid would collide with Earth or the moon.
The size: it has a diameter estimated at 400 meters, or about a quarter of a mile. 2005 YU 55 is the biggest asteroid to make a close pass by Earth since 1976.
YU55's trajectory was taken as an opportunity for astronomers to do research into the asteroid's composition.
The last time a large cosmic interloper came that close to Earth was in 1976, and experts say it won't happen again until 2028.

Here's a video of the asteroid YU55.
