A recently discovered asteroid had 'a very close encounter' with Earth

There was no reason to panic — an asteroid shot past our planet harmlessly Thursday night, NASA says. The space agency says the object — the size of a large moving truck — made one of the closest approaches to Earth ever when it zipped over the Southern Hemisphere.

There was no reason for alarm, as a NASA engineer called it "one of the closest approaches by a known near-Earth object ever recorded." It was only 2,200 miles above the Earth's surface.

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz announced Wednesday his country will export more than a dozen of its Leopard 2 battle tanks to Ukraine. The move follows weeks of pressure from western allies.
