Did you happen to catch the asteroid that is buzzing by us right now? If you have a telescope and a clear sky to the east, there’s still time to see asteroid 2004 BL86. The 1,100-foot-diameter body got as close as 745,000 miles from Earth yesterday, about 3.1 times farther than the distance from us to the moon.

Unless you have equipment like NASA’s 230-foot-wide Deep Space Network antenna, though, you won’t be able to see this little surprise tagging along with BL86. Yesterday, scientists using the antenna in Goldstone, Calif. took radar images of the asteroid and found that it is travelling with a little moon just 230 feet in diameter.

Researchers at the Jet Propulsion Lab say such asteroid duos aren’t an anomaly in our solar system: A survey of asteroids near Earth that are 655 feet across or larger found that some 16 percent have one or two moons orbiting them.

In 2002 a small asteroid known as J002E3 was discovered on a near earth orbit. It was first spotted by an amateur astronomer, Bill Yeung and was reported as a passing Near-Earth Object. Soon, however, the object’s motion suggested it wasn’t just passing by, it was in an orbit around the Earth. Its trajectory had all the telltale signs of being a space debris and further observations have also confirmed that the object’s spectral signature matched the white titanium dioxide paint used on Apollo rockets. J002E3 is most likely to be the third stage of the rocket that launched Apollo 12, which failed to crash on the Moon as planned. NASA used such impacts to generate ‘Moonquakes’ that could be studied by lunar seismographs to gain information on the Moon’s interior.

J002E3’s orbit is a bit unusual but not unique; the object spends some time in the Sun-Earth first Lagrange point (L1), then loops around Earth, reaches escape velocity in the process and flies back into heliocentric orbit where it currently resides. Although its orbit is constantly changing because of gravitational perturbations by the Sun and Moon, J002E3 is expected to come back around the mid 2040s.

If you’re not currently getting annihilated with snow then keep in mind that tonight there is a 500 m asteroid passing within 3 Earth-Moon distances from the earth today. This will be the biggest (known) asteroid to get this close until 2027.

You should be able to see it with binoculars. Let me know how it went and if anyone can get a good picture of it I’ll gladly post it here with due credit.

I often receive questions about how fluids react to extremely hard and fast impacts. Some people wonder if there’s a regime where a fluid like water will react like a solid. In reality, nature works the opposite way. Striking a solid hard enough and fast enough makes it behave like a fluid. The video above shows a simulated impact of a 500-km asteroid in the Pacific Ocean. (Be sure to watch with captions on.) The impact rips 10 km off the crust of the Earth and sends a hypersonic shock wave of destruction around the entire Earth. There’s a strong resemblance in the asteroid impact to droplet impacts and splashes. Much of this has to do with the energy of impact. The asteroid’s kinetic (and, indeed, potential) energy prior to impact is enormous, and conservation of energy means that energy has to go somewhere. It’s that energy that vaporizes the oceans and fluidizes part of the Earth’s surface. That kinetic energy rips the orderly structure of solids apart and turns it effectively into a granular fluid.

Earlier this week, two federal agencies—NASA and the National Nuclear Security Administration—announced that they will work together to monitor potentially dangerous asteroids while also exploring methods for deflecting or destroying objects that could threaten Earth.

The threat posed by asteroid impacts is real, and a range of strategies to protect the planet, from blasting an asteroid aside to using a rocket to steer it off course, have been discussed over the years.
