I heard that tonight around 6:20ishPM there will be an asteroid passing by the planet. It’s supposed to get closer than the moon to Earth. I’m curious if I’ll be able to see it. I don’t have a telescope or anything so it’s unlikely. I think it should be named. All the numbers and letters it’s given seems a little degrading for a giant hunk of rock that could easily make us the next dinosaurs. Something like… The Roid or Assy the Asteroid. Humans are such fragile, squishy creatures; it’s got to be pure luck that we are still alive. Our planet is the only known planet with living organisms on it. There are millions upon millions of ways for us to die, including disease, malnutrition, cancer, and accidents. And if something or someone doesn’t kill us, we will find a way to kill ourselves. However, today we can all breathe a sigh of relief because even though death is hovering around us like flies on a cow patty, today we won’t be floating down the River Styx due to the destructively sweet kiss of Assy the Asteroid.
