– “The circular 'goosebumps' (on Comet 67P) look very, very bizarre. To be frank, we don't know how those things were created. We have no clue.”

January 26, 2015 Albuquerque, New Mexico - On Monday, January 26, 2015, at 11:19 AM EST, a large asteroid about one-third of a mile wide will zip past Earth some 750,000 miles (1.2 million km) away. The Goldstone Deep Space Network near Barstow, California, will track the asteroid. At that time, the asteroid should be close to the Beehive Cluster and with a powerful pair of binoculars, you might be able to see it. See sky map.
