This "Death Comet" Looks Like a Skull

Actually that's Asteroid 2015 TB145 as spotted by NASA's Infrared Telescope Facility (IRTF) on Mauna Kea, Hawaii, when it zipped past Earth - missing it by just 300,000 miles - on Halloween three years ago.

It's making the rounds again on the Internet, but its likely won't come that close to Earth when it comes around again this year.
