Astronomers are warning us that a near Earth asteroid the size of an aircraft carrier will be coming very, very close to us this weekend. This asteroid will be passing by Earth 15 percent closer than the moon, which in astronomical terms is pretty darn close!
Interestingly, these astronomers describe the asteroid as a dark sphere. Wait just one minute, did they say dark sphere? Where have I read about a dark sphere falling from space and crashing into the ocean. Could it be another incident of life taking a page out of my novel Falling Star?
