A Quick Hello, Then Gone.....


A newly discovered car-sized asteroid flew past Earth early Tuesday. The asteroid, 2010 TD54, made its closest approach to Earth at 6:51 a.m. EDT (4:51 a.m. MDT).

It was well within the Moon's orbit. Yes they're out there. Luckily this one would have burned up in the atmosphere. We may not be so lucky the next time.
