Asteroid, discovered yesterday, swept past

I think it’s creepy how many of these there have been lately. Maybe detection is just better and they’ve been out there all along, but I must say that given the state of the world these days I wouldn’t be surprised if it was a statement of opinion from the Cosmos in general.


Astronomers discovered asteroid 2016 VA on November 1, 2016, just hours before it passed within 0.2 times the moon’s distance of Earth. Images here.
