Close Encounter

There was an article in the Times-Delta this morning saying that Earth had a close encounter with a large asteroid today.  The rock was apparently as large as the Rose Bowl stadium in Pasadena, and had it hit us dead on, it would certainly have been lights out!  Thing is, I did not hear anything about this until today.  Had any of you?  Makes me wonder just how long it will be before we really are hit 🙂

    Sorry! The asteroid makes close approach on Monday, not today.

    Good thing it missed us and won’t be back for a while 🙂
