ASTEROID COMING CLOSE TO EARTH
An asteroid weighing about 143,000 tons will zoom past earth around that time.
It won't be visible to the naked eye, and even if you watch with something like a telescope, you won't see much more than a bright streak, since it will be traveling around seventeen thousand four hundred miles per hour.
It is, however, a Near Earth Object, and it will pass by closer to the earth than some of our weather and navigation satellites.
That meteorite which exploded over Russia earlier and injured so many people was tiny by comparison – weighing in at only about ten tons.

He worked for the New York City advertising firm D F S when he accepted an assignment from the agency's largest client, General Mills, to create television cartoons to promote its breakfast cereals.

He spoke in simple rhymes, his most famous probably "There's no need to fear, Underdog is here."
