ASTEROID TO FLY BY EARTH 9/13/12 – see online!!!
I wanted to hurry and get this up so all of you could take part in this. There is an Asteroid (2012 2G42 – to be exact) that will pass by the Earth Thursday September 13th, at about 6pm. It is the distance of here to the moon about 7 times and is somewhere between 190 meters and 460 meters wide.
Tune at 6pm EDT to the Virtual Telescope Project (in Italy) run by Gianluca Masi or at 7pm EDT to the SLOOH space camera to catch the “event”!
(Maybe This is a part of whatever Jupiter took a hit for us of the other day!)
