Well, this is interesting. Two modest size chunks of space rock are going to whiz past well inside Lunar orbit tomorrow. One around 0.2LD, which is under 80,000 Kilometres, or under 50,000 miles, the other at 0.6LD or a shade over 230,000Km or 143,000 Miles. At 10 and 16 metres across respectively nothing to panic about, but enough to put on a decent light show should they graze Earth's atmosphere. Pity it's raining over here and we'll miss it.

H/T for the heads up to
