Astro Bob's Backyard Astronomy: "Who had 'asteroid hitting earth' for November?"

Who can blame us if 2020's making us a little slap-happy?

Yes, there is an (itty-bitty) asteroid headed for Earth.

But it's only 6'6" - half the size of a Volkswagen Beetle.

If it actually hit the earth (and there's only a 0.41% chance of that, BTW), it would probably disintegrate and become ... asteroid dust.

And if that sounds beautiful, wait until you hear what else is coming up in the next few weeks.
