Watch Your Asteroids

Computer model shows J002E3 6 turning around the Earth and then transitioning into a heliocentric orbit.

Detected by an amateur astronomer William Yong September 3, 2002. Further studies showed that the object was not a stone asteroid, but a third stage (S-IVB) rocket from the Saturn 5 Apollo 12 expedition.
