Watch an Asteroid Tumble Through Space

NASA’s Deep Space Network antenna in Goldstone, California, captured this video footage of Toutatis, an asteroid that flew about 4.3 million miles from Earth on December 12 and 13. Take a good look because the next time the asteroid will have a close encounter with our planet will be in November 2069.

In 2029, the Earth could encounter a killer asteroid of epic proportions, says astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson.
