Frankie Says: Massive Asteroid Headed Towards the Earth in February
Normally Frankie MacDonald warns us about bad weather coming our way. This time Frankie has a heads up on a 'Massive Asteroid' headed toward earth. Massive Asteroid 2002 AJ129 is Headed towards the Earth on Sunday, February 4, 2018.
According to the Weather Network: "On the afternoon of February 4, 2018, at 4:30 p.m. EST, 'potentially hazardous asteroid' 2002 AJ129 will be flying past us, at a distance of about 2.6 million miles away. At over 10 times the distance between the Earth and the Moon at its closest point, this will be a completely safe encounter, but an important one for scientists studying these relics of the early solar system."
Doesn't look like we will need to run out and stock up on our soda and Chinese food. Thanks, Frankie!
