Bus Sized Asteroid Will Give Earth a Close Shave

Bus Sized Asteroid Will Give Earth a Close Shave


     In a year that seemingly keeps on giving, perhaps it's not so surprising that NASA's newly discovered asteroid called 2020 SW will give earth a not so socially distant pass.

Discovered only on September 18, in Tucson, Arizona, the school bus-sized asteroid which is estimated to be somewhere between 15-30 feet in diameter is expected to graze past our planets surface with about 13,000 miles of breathing room. This falls well below the orbit of our geostationary weather satellites which are located about 22,000 miles above earth's surface.
