Space JunkWe are begin invaded!!! Nasa doesn’t know what is going to fly by the Earth on Wednesday, but I think its aliens doing a fly-by. Their just checking us out and getting ready for 2012.

Astronomers say it may be space junk or it could be a tiny asteroid, too small to cause damage even if it hit. It’s 33 to 50 feet wide at most.

If you are into Space and things like that you might want to check out Heavens-Above.com. Heavens Above allows you to track the ISS so you can watch it fly over you. You can type in your location using GPS coordinates or use there database of known location.

Typically you can see the ISS for about 5 minutes when it passes over. It looks like a bright star moving slower than a jet does when it flies over you.
