2017 DR34 Asteroid

Pic from nemesis maturity: What is going on?

From nemesis maturity: on Feb 24, 2017

A newly discovered asteroid named 2017 DR34 will make a very close approach to Earth, passing only 0.57 LD (Lunar Distance) 218,880 km / 136,005 miles from the surface of our planet on February 25, 2017. 

This is the second near-Earth asteroid to fly by within 1 lunar distance since February 23, and the sixth since January 9, 2017.

Asteroid 2017 DR34 has an estimated diameter between 4 and 9 m and it belongs to the Apollo group of asteroids.  It will make its closest approach to our planet at 04:52 UTC on February 25 and flyby at a speed (relative to the Earth @ 67,000 mph - 29.97 km\s) of 11.41 km/s. (25523.443092341 mph)

The Watchers

This is the sixth asteroid passing in less than 1 LD since January 9.  Are we passing through a swarm of asteroids?  I just wonder what is really going on.
