Getting Closer

Well, the days are getting longer again (except for anyone reading this in the Southern hemisphere) which I take as good news.

Better yet, we're still getting closer to the Sun. Perihelion occurs on January 2, 2005.

So why don't I feel warmer?

Look Out for Falling Rocks

Via Instapundit, I pass along this story about a newly-discovered asteroid that zipped past inside geosynchronous orbit this week. Fortunately, it was really small and probably would have disintegrated in the upper atmosphere had it hit us. Unfortunately, there wasn't anything we could have done about it if it wasn't small and was headed right for us.
