Asteroid Flyby On Halloween dubbed “Spooky”

SPOOKY – There have been better names for Asteroids, and what could be more fitting than this aptly named rock hurling itself through space than to pass by Earth doing 78,000 MPH on Halloween night.

Witches Beware!! This Rock may be an intergalactic Witch Hunting Device released from another planet seeking revenge on interplantery witches who meddled in the dark magic. OR, it could just be a rock?

What type of rock could “Spooky” be made from? No one really knows, as it was only detected three weeks ago, and scientists are still trying to get their bearings on the object as it appears, then disappears, which is why it is such a spooky object; not to mention its timely passing on the Solstice! YIKES!

From the looks of this neat little infogram, it will safely pass Earth; hopefully not spooking too many people in the process:
