A recreation of 2008-TC3's tumbling pattern.

Do you remember what you were doing October 7, 2008? Astronomers the world over sure do, that was the day they tracked an asteroid from outer space all the way to its impact site for the first time. Read that again because it’s freaking terrifying, especially the “first time” part.

Don’t worry, it landed in the Nubian Desert, but not all of them will. Sleep tight.
