Creepy skull-shaped asteroid will cruise by Earth after Halloween
If you were planning on holding a Halloween bash on October 31st, you might want to reschedule. A very special asteroid is going to make a sorta-near-Earth appearance soon, but like a terrible guest that you're not sure why you invited, it's going to show up nearly two weeks late.
Asteroid 2015 TB145 was discovered back in (you guessed it) 2015, and its initial appearance near Earth was truly noteworthy. The rock, which looks a lot like a giant human skull, showed up around 300,000 miles from Earth right on Halloween. This time around it's going to be late for the occasion, and also quite a bit farther away.
