Another asteroid, this one the size of a city block, is going to pass by Earth.

Apparently, this one is further away — 600,000 miles from you and me. That’s twice as far as the moon.

Asteroid “2013ET,” which is simply code for when it was discovered, will pass by Saturdayafternoon.

Last month’s asteroid was just 17,000 miles away.

And there was that meteor over Russia, injuring some 1,500 people with its sonic boom.
