A MASSIVE asteroid will pass by our happy and content planet, today, Friday, May 31, 2013 at 20:59 UTC (4:59 p.m. EDT). The asteroid is called “1998 QE2” and it’s 2.7 kilometres across (1.7 miles). The closest it’ll come near our minding-our-own business gleeful place to live will be 6 million kilometres away (3.6 million miles), the equivalent to 15x the distance from Earth to the Moon. If hit doesn’t hit you right on your head, you’ll need a decent telescope to see it. If you miss it, and we’re all still alive tomorrow, this is its closest it will get to us for another couple hundred years.
I love you all.
