how cool is this thing?



artist rendering:




An asteroid that bears a striking resemblance to a skull is set to pass Earth again next year, having last done so on Halloween in 2015.

Called 2015 TB145, the asteroid is about 625 to 700 meters (2,050-2,300 feet) across, and rotates once every three hours. It swung past our planet on October 31, 2015, at a distance of 486,000 kilometers (302,000 miles), having been spotted three weeks earlier. That’s just 1.3 times the distance of the Moon.

And in November 2018, the asteroid should pass relatively near our planet again. This time around it’ll be quite distant, about 105 times further than the Moon, but close enough to study. The next time the object comes really close will be in 2088, when it will pass about 20 times further than the Moon.


Bizarre Skull Asteroid Will Return To Earth In 2018

It will probably harbour some stranded space pirates..

Cool if it's made by nature itself and as long as it stays away from Earth only to observe.

I see its big enough to be a next level extinction skull asteroid

I think it should be called Homopithicus Astrofaroutsis.

How ironic would it be for mankind to wiped out by a Asteroid shaped like a human skull...

If it crashes into the atmosphere it would become a "flaming skull of death"!!

That would be cool. Huh-huh.

If we make it past all the other doomporn dates next year and rumors of nuclear annihilation then I vote for Flaming Skull of Death!

It isn't CGI it's a radar image.

it looked to me like the images you showed were 90 degrees offset from the one in the OP... like a 'side' view instead of a front, if you will. the pareidolia definitely doesn't hold up as well from that angle.

still cool, tho


ETA: this article credits the OP image as a radar image from an observatory in Puerto Rico, released by NASA

Nah, it's just the worn, tattered remains of the Eternals' Zardoz head coming back for the harvest.
