Space offers an asteroid in the form of hippo for Christmas on the planet


The SD220 will be 1.6 km away and only 2.9 million kilometers will be close to astronomical standards.

It rotates once every 12 days for a asteroid slowly and it pushes.

NASA says it is unusual among the nearest planet asteroids, known as the "non-core axis" rotation, at least about the shortest axis.

Asteroid images were taken by the radar.

In 2003, the final SD220 was fly-by 2015, over 10 million miles (Christmas Time) at NZ time.

According to the Purdue University Impact Calculator, hippo-shaped rock could have created a crater about 22 kilometers in length when it hit the ground with an angle of 45 degrees.
