Asteroid
A note to readers:
Take care not to confuse Asteroid 2016 CM194, which was discovered Saturday as it passed closer than the orbits of some manmade satellites, with Asteroid 2016 DB, which was discovered Wednesday, two days after it passed closer than the orbits of some man-made satellites.
Always reassuring to have the incoming asteroids straight.
