Asteroid Streaks Past Earth
– “For You To Enjoy And Share With Friends” –
The asteroid, 2101 LZ1 that I posted on yesterday streaked past Earth last night and was caught on film. It can still be seen by telescope as for the time being it appears to be travelling parallel to the Earth. Scientists are still trying to map out its future trajectories to see if it will ever be a threat to the Earth.
Throughout its history Earth has been periodically hit by asteroids. The most notorious collision is the one thought to have wiped out the dinosaurs about 63 million years ago.
