Duck! Near Earth Asteroid to Miss Us by 25,000 Miles!

Holy cow that’s close!

25,000 miles is 1/10 the distance to the moon. Considering how big space is that is a razor close shave.

This asteroid was discovered by the Catalina Sky Survey at the University of Arizona over the weekend. It is estimated to be around 60 feet in diameter, and is supposed to pass over New Zealand when it comes through. The article points out it will not be possible to see naked eye, but a telescope should resolve it. I am sure someone will get a good pic of it that will make its way to the internet.

You never know when you get up in the morning, what kind of day it will turn out to be. Imagine if that thing were to hit close to home. Man I am sure glad it is a miss…this time.
