Boo! Halloween Asteroid Looks Just Like a Creepy Skull


NASA has called it a "Great Pumpkin." Others have called it "spooky." But this image of a huge asteroid making a Halloween flyby of Earth today looks so much like a skull, it's scary. The radar image of the stadium-sized asteroid 2015 TB145 was captured on Friday, Halloween eve (Oct. 30), by scientists using the Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico. It shows a haunting view of an asteroid with an uneven surface, with depressions in regions that give it the appearance of a human skull staring out from the void.
