Asteroid Florence Will Pass Close To Earth Today

By Grace Vasquez

YIKES!! The phrase “Too close for comfort!” comes to mind when I heard a three-mile wide asteroid – big enough to wipe out all life on earth FIVE times over – will pass by like really close to Earth. What?

The asteroid, named Florence, will pass by the distance of just 4 million miles and that’s a hair’s breadth in astronomical terms.

Astronomers say Florence will be visible with the naked aye around the world, especially tonight when it reaches peak brightness high overhead in the night sky. Don’t freak out but it will come awfully close to our home, Earth!

Holy Smokes! ~grace
