52-FOOT ASTEROID WILL SKIM EARTH ON TUESDAY

A small asteroid, one that was only recently discovered, will come extremely close to Earth Tuesday. Hurtling through the space at 26,000 mph, the tiny rock will scrape past our planet, coming nearly as close as the moon. The interesting thing the asteroid is that it almost slipped past NASA’s radar. The object was picked up by NASA asteroid trackers on October 5.
