Two Asteroids Zipped by Earth Hours Before Anyone Noticed!
The bus-sized pieces of space debris whipped by us at relatively close range over the weekend.
by Eric Mack - July 11, 2018

They almost snuck by undetected, but two small asteroids were discovered over the weekend just hours after they whizzed past us about 72,000 miles away -- about one-third the distance to the moon.

Asteroids 2018 NX and 2018 NW were first spotted by the Palomar Observatory in Southern California on Sunday as they passed our neighborhood on the way back to further reaches of the solar system. 

Each of the space rocks are estimated to be about the size of a school bus, with a diameter around 10 meters (33 feet), but they don't appear to be traveling together. That's because 2018 NW was observed traveling at a velocity of 21.3 km/s (47,647 mph), or about five times faster than 2018 NX.

Neither asteroid posed a threat to us, and they also had nothing to do with the fireball that people across the central US saw Sunday evening

In fact, an asteroid passes harmlessly by at a distance to us closer than the moon every few weeks. It is interesting and rare to see a pair zip by so close to one another, however.

I enjoy watching Anime, Science Fiction, and Horror at the movies and on TV. I also read a lot of Science Fiction and Fantasy. I enjoy going to Science Fiction Conventions and Car Shows. I also enjoy watching Drag Racing in person and on TV. When I have a Muscle Car I sometimes take it to the track and race it myself. I sold my last Muscle Car, a 1988 Monte Carlo SS, and I am currently in the market for another car. B-)
