Strange Science: Earth’s New Tiny Moon

You won’t see it if you look up into the sky, but the Earth currently has a bonus moon.

The second moon is considerably smaller than our normal moon, only about the size of a compact car. It’s probably an asteroid, though it could be a chunk that was knocked off the normal moon, or it could be space debris of a non-natural sort, like a piece of a rocket. Whatever it is, it’s been in orbit around the Earth for a short while, and it will eventually no longer be in orbit. But for right now, we’ve got two moons!
