Happy Extraordinary Cosmic Events Day!
Today is a day of many posts, probably. Most importantly, it’s the day that 2004 XP14 was going to wipe out a small country or worse. Back when all those doomsday movies came out people were going crazy over this asteroid, discovered back in 2004, which actually did come close (between the Earth and the Moon).
Also, Today is the day of Earth’s Aphelion, for which my server is named. It’s the furthest distance from the center of the Earth to the center of the Sun, in it’s elliptical orbit. Should be a cold day, right?
