Space Stuff: Another Near Miss
Earth/ Sky News tells us we had a near miss from an asteroid yesterday. It came within 2/10ths the distance of the moon. Too close for my comfort. Glad I read about it after the fact. I'd be a nervous wreck if I'd known before. The video on the page shows an eclipse of the asteroid. Watch for a minute or so and the asteroid disappears only to reappear a few seconds later. I guess that's when it passes through the Earth's shadow.
