Hi everyone.

Two years ago York University astronomers Dr. Kim Innanen and
Dr. Paul Wiegert working with a colleague in Finland discovered
that Earth has a second moon. Our second moon, initially known
as Asteroid 3753 (1986TO), has now been named Cruithne.

Cruithne is about 3 miles (5 kilometers) in size and its unusual
"horseshoe" shaped orbit around the Earth (see web site below
for details) brings it as close to us as 40 times the Earth-Moon
(with a large "M") distance.

Little else is known about this moon (with a small "m") but with
continued observations from York University, we should soon be
able to say whether it rotates or not and if it has permanent
dark and light sides.  Skye Turell may yet be vindicated and his
original statements regarding the moon (Skye used a small "m")
may true out to be prophetic.

Also, since this post is for UFO UpDates, I would like to say
that York University astronomers have _not_ yet ruled out that
Cruithne is artificial - a huge UFO in space near the Earth.

Since Koch's and Kyborg's version of Betty Hill's 'star map' did
not have any lines connecting Cruithne to other asteriods and
planets in our solar system, this is strong evidence to me that
their version is wrong.  ;o)
