Just when you thought the 2011 sky show couldn't get any better, we find that there is yet another heavenly visitor coming to Earth this year.
We will be visited by an Astroid, 2005 YU, on Nov. 8 - 9, 2011. YU is 400 meters wide and will pass earth within an 0.85 lunar distance.
Translation, Astroid 2005 YU will be closer to the Earth than our Moon when she comes-a-callin, according to NASA. http://1.usa.gov/gUOroN.
The Astroid will reach a visual brightness of 11th magnitude and should be easily visible to observers in the northern and southern hemispheres.
In my previous post from April 3, http://bit.ly/i04adQ, I listed in date order all of the celestial events that will occur in 2011. Interestingly, is the fact that there will be an event on every one of the Jewish Holidays this year.
If our friendly skys get any more crowded this year, someone will have to go up there and direct traffic.
Keep smiling cause the signs keep coming,
