 Post subject: Asteroid to pass Earth
PostPosted: Wed Nov 2, '11, 5:10 am 
Asteroid 2005 YU55 will pass by Earth next Tuesday, Nov. 8. This Asteroid is as large as an aircraft carrier, and that's pretty huge. :

It will be several years, probably around 2028, before a large Asteroid like this one will pass Earth again.

Sounds very exciting!!! :hyper:

It seems like it's going to come pretty close! I'm glad it is going to miss the planet, though. Hopefully the scientists can learn a lot from this one.
