We've talked about Apollo asteroids before. These are asteroids inside Earth's orbit. You can see one this Sunday if you'd like! You don't even need a telescope to do it. All you need is a computer with internet access.
Sunday night, July 22, Asteroid 2002 AM31 will make a close fly by of Earth. By close fly by, I'm meaning a mere 3.2 million miles. Not Hollywood material, but close in space terms. This asteroid is about the size of a city block.
Want to see it? Just tune into the SLOOH Space Camera at 7:30 EST. I've never checked out this site before, but my initial looks at it just now seem pretty cool.
On a side note, if I hear another person talk about how wonderful it is for teachers to have 3 months off in the summer, I might just blow a gasket. Granted, teachers don't work for 2 months over the summer, but we also don't get paid for it either! I'm working two jobs over the summer to make up for it. I actually am looking forward to August so that my work schedule can slow down!
