1) Not enough observations to fit an accurate path.

2) Earth launched gear (satellite, lunar, planetary, etc probes)
have all probably used fine tuning aero / burns to correct for
inaccurate timing / aiming / model in similar calculations.

... was completely unknown until too late to do anything
about it. As usual. Only 4 ground impactors were ever
observed beforehand, all impacted within 24h of their discovery.
Satellites etc can observe hundreds of small atmospheric impacts per day.
Also consider odds of Humans having permanent Space or
Planet base before being able to do anything about an extinctor.
