A skull-shaped asteroid is expected to zip by in November this year. In mid-November, the asteroid will make its second flyby past Earth since it was discovered just beyond the moon as it went pass Earth on Oct 31. Officially known as 2018TB145, it spends most of its time beyond Mars and Jupiter, but its orbit brings it close to Earth every 3.04 years.. Researchers hope to get the opportunity to learn more about the rock, considered "potentially hazardous" by NASA because of its close approaches. In 2015, the asteroid came within 300,000 miles of Earth---as a gauge, the moon is 239,000 miles away. So far, experts have gathered the asteroid is around 2,100 feet wide, rotates once every three to five hours, and looks like a skull from some angles.
There have been a few artist renditions of the asteroid, but we're the pro's here. So let us create our own versions of what the "Skull Shaped Asteroid” will look like as it passed by Earth. PLEASE NOTE: LIMIT 3 ENTRIES PER PLAYER. To learn more about this story Visit This Link

It was not til the 19th century that eyeglasses became stylish, modern, and popular so much that people liked to be photographed and painted with them.
Let us show how famous paintings would look if characters there were depicted with eyeglasses (modern or antique) PLEASE NOTE: LIMIT 3 ENTRIES PER PLAYER. Thanks to Hobbit for the theme post. For some good examples of past Eyeglass Art Visit This Link
