The Hubble Space Telescope has discovered a six-tailed asteroid in the asteroid belt between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter. Scientists say they’ve never seen anything like it. Incredibly, the comet-like tails change shape as the asteroid sheds dust. The streams have occurred over several months.
Scientists say a large asteroid came near to Earth in September and will return in 2032.
It’s not too late to catch the spectacular Venus and Jupiter show.
On Monday and Tuesday evenings, Venus and Jupiter will appear just 3 degrees apart in the western sky. The gap has been narrowing since last month.
