A user has found a 'huge asteroid' while scanning the virtual heavens using Googly Sky.
Youtube user planetkrejci, who has investigated other anomalies on NASA pictures, claims the object - found using the Google website which transports the heavens to desktop computers and smartphones - is an asteroid which is heading towards Earth.
He says the asteroid - which, if real, has not been spotted by other scientists or astronomers - has only appeared recently on Google Sky, which receives updated images every few months.

Probably nothing, but will share it just in case. I checked if I was missing an update for this app but no pending update found. So....what do you think?
I have the Asteroid Alert App on my Iphone. I check it almost every day and it always worked without failure and info displayed normally.
About 30 mins ago (plus the time to make this thread), I checked and it is not giving information of any upcoming asteroids. I captured the images from the phone.

I don't feel like those glitches are similiar. These seem to fit perfectly in their own little craters on the asteroid. It seems very in sync with the texture of the asteroid.

Wow, the author of that article didn't even bother to ask an actual astronomer what the thing could be before writing the article, nor did the editors make that suggestion to him. They just instantly accepted one side of the story from one random guy who posts something on the internet. That's some truly terrible journalism for you.
What a terrible news source.
