Very up close and curious: flyby Jan 13 2010

Space Weather News for Jan 12, 2010

CURIOUS ASTEROID FLYBY: A curious object is about to fly past Earth only one-third the distance to the Moon. Catalogued as a 10m-class asteroid, 2010 AL30 has an orbital period of almost exactly 1 year. This raises the possibility that it might not be a natural object, but rather a piece of some spacecraft from our own planet.

At closest approach on Jan 13, 2010 AL30 will streak through Orion, Taurus, and Pisces glowing like a 14th magnitude star. Experienced amateur astronomers are encouraged to monitor the flyby.

Orbital elements, images, and more information are available on SpaceWeather.com.

Now after yesterday’s news of Sarah Palin’s signing with FOX News I must say it: it is a bird, a plane, or a Palin? And will her TV commentary career last as long as a curious flyby?

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel are essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
