Return of the Halloween Asteroid
Around the night of Halloween in 2015, astronomers studied an asteroid that passed by Earth at a distance only 1.3 times the distance between us and the moon.
There was plenty to learn from the rock blazing through space, but what was most compelling to many was that, under the right lighting angles and conditions, the asteroid looked like a human skull and on Halloween, no less! Add to that the fact that 2015 TB145 is about as dark and reflective as charcoal, and you've got one spooky space rock.
It passes close again to Earth in November, and an asteroid of its size. 625 and 700 meters, or slightly less than half a mile, long won't be this close to Earth until 2027.
Mars at its Best !
