Earth’s Second Moon is the Size of a smart car

How many moons revolve around the Earth? If you answered one right now, you’d be wrong. According to scientists, there is a smart car-sized asteroid orbiting around our blue and green planet.

The object, labeled 2006 RH120, was caught in the Earth’s gravitational pull. Scientists estimate that it will continue to orbit around our planet for up to nine months before it breaks off and goes on it’s own way.
