Quickly! Asteroid in half an hour!

Grab your 6-8 inch or larger telescopes and perch them outside if you’re in the Northern Hemisphere tonight because this 400 metre asteroid will be even closer to Earth than the moon; 3/4 of the distance to the moon to be exact.  I’m excited!  Oh, except that I don’t have a telescope, so if someone should see it, please tell me how cool it was.  Should start around 6:28pm.

Oh and it could hit Earth 100 years from now.  I don’t know, 400 metres?  That wouldn’t destroy everything faster than the human race is already destroying itself, right?

About Nikki

I've been writing since I was in kindergarten where I Crayola-markered an epic tale of a tiger and a balloon on a stack of lined papers folded into a booklet and stapled along the edge (carefully, and by my teacher). I love DIY, sewing, folksy music, animals and getting out to look at and listen to nature.
