Two small asteroids bulls-eye between Earth and Moon tomorrow!

Note: Two asteroids, roughly 30-feet-across and 60-feet-across, will zing between the Earth and the Moon sometime tomorrow, as reported by AstronomyNow.  Nothing to be alarmed about, as these guys are small enough that if they hit Earth, they’d burn up and become a “shooting star.”  However, it is noteworthy that the two ancient rocks, named “2010 RF12,” and, “2010 RX30,” both pass within the distance separating the Earth and Moon.

Fun to know what’s going on in our neighborhood.
