Spinning Asteroid Flyby

SPINNING ASTEROID FLYBY: A 50-meter asteroid is flying past the Earth-Moon system on
April 15th, 2011. There's no danger of a collision, but the 50-meter space rock is
remarkable. It is elongated and spinning, which causes the asteroid to flash like a
strobe light in amateur telescopes. Video and observing tips are highlighted on today's
edition of http://spaceweather.com.
