You bet your asteroid!
Tonight, an asteroid known as 2012 TC4 that is roughly the size of a small house will pass between Earth and the moon. Supposedly, there is no chance of an impact, but I’ve seen “Armageddon.” You just never know.
The good news is that skeptics like me, and anyone else who is interested, can monitor this asteroid online. The Jet Propulsion Laboratory‘s Near Earth Object Office has two options for any science geeks out there.
Of course, those of you with telescopes may have some luck seeing this thing, too.
