Watch out! An asteroid’s passing by today. Might want to duck and cover

So, apparently an asteroid’s passing by Earth today. Yeah, it’s about 100 feet wide and flying by at a relatively close distance — about a quarter of the distance to the moon.

And scientists only discovered it a week ago. I’m hoping they’re right about the 59,000-mile buffer between us and it.

Anyway, learn a lot more about the small asteroid and how we’ll be just fine — fingers crossed — by reading the full story here.

Don’t forget how to duck and cover just in case.
