    Default Asteroid Florence



    Hi all,

    I know its been a while since I last posted and I have updates to post but more importantly.....

    I read an article that a gigantic asteroid is supposed to flying past us either today or tomorrow... I say tomorrow becasue I'm in Australia, so it it thier time or our time.. as its NAsa im taking it as tomorrow....
    Nasa has said that it will pss through constellations Piscis Australis, capricoinus, aquaris and delphinius, but hasn't given any time frames..

    Would anyone in our little forum have any idea? Especially for the southern hemisphere?

    Thanks everyone
