Asteroid to make close flyby on Oct 31

Posted by on Wednesday, October 21, 2015

An asteroid known as 2015 TB145 is about to whiz past earth on October 31.

The asteroid is 400 metres across and is travelling at 126 000 km/h. The asteroid is expected to pass within 490,000 kilometres of the Earth at 7:12 a.m. ET. 

The asteroid  was only discovered less than two weeks ago. The flyby is close enough that it should provide some of the sharpest radar images of any asteroid this year.
