Near Miss

An unexpected asteroid breezed within 7,500 miles of Earth this week. That sounds like a long way, but it’s actually a close scrape by space standards. Named 2011 MD, this asteroid came “32 times closer to Earth than the moon does.”

Have great eyesight? If you look closely, you can see 2011 MD in the video below.
