Once again the region between the Earth and the Moon has been busy. Not only one but eight small asteroids passed incredibly close to our planet. Interestingly, some of them were discovered JUST a few hours before their close approach. 8 asteroids were discovered from October 17 to 22, 2020, marking a significant increase in detection and flybys of asteroids within 1 lunar distance in such a short period of time. Eight 8 asteroids with an estimated diameter between 2 and 19 metres, buzzed by Earth a little too close for comfort and the world did not get much advanced notice. Eyes on the Skies!
