Is this asteroid wearing a mask??
According to USA Today, an asteroid will be passing by Earth this week and people can't help but to comment on the way is looks from one angle. Its that a social distancing mask?
The space rock, known as 1998 OR2, will be nearly 4 million miles away from Earth on Wednesday at 5:59 a.m. ET – classifying it as a "potentially hazardous" asteroid despite the impossibility of it posing a threat to Earth anytime soon.
A newly captured image by Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico brings its own surprise. As the asteroid approaches our planet, it looks as if it's wearing its own mask – and may very well be conducting its own social distancing practices.
Hilariously enough, I might have to agree with one Twitter users thoughts on what it actually looks like...
A giant space boob.
