Astroid Fly-By Feb. 15th - 02/14/13
Do aliens exist? Are we alone in this universe? How big is outer space?
Some of you may have asked yourselves these questions, just like many other people on this planet. That's what makes outer space so interesting -- there's an endless amount of information we can study, if we have the technology for it.
We have a really neat astronomical event happening this Friday (Feb. 15th, 2013) night. It's one of the closest objects to skirt by earth we've ever seen. Let me first state that there is no threat of this object actually coming into our atmosphere. But it is getting really close. The object will pass in between the distance of the moon and even some of our satellites. Folks with small telescopes or binoculars will be able to see it directly after sunset.
Set yourself up so you can get a good look at the southern part of the sky directly after sunset. This rock will be traveling northward. Aim small miss small. Look for faint stars moving. This object won't be very large, it's actually only 160 ft wide. I'll go ahead and put a couple more websites for you to look up if you want direct coordinates.
If any of you happen to snap any pictures/video of this thing, please send them to me via E-Mail, Twitter or Facebook.
