After several months of downtime after Hurricane Maria blew through, the Arecibo Observatory Planetary Radar has returned to normal operation, providing the highest-resolution images to date of near-Earth asteroid 3200 Phaethon during its Dec. 16 flyby of Earth. The radar images, which are subtle at the available resolution, reveal the asteroid is spheroidal in shape and has a large concavity at least several hundred meters in extent near the leading edge, and a conspicuous dark, circular feature near one of the poles. Arecibo's radar images of Phaethon have resolutions as fine as about 250 feet (75 meters) per pixel.

The alien spacecraft is thought to be on a friendly mission. There is writing on the side that translates as ‘to serve man’.
I am the egg rock. Coo coo cahoo.
The universe is a big Easter egg hunt.
Experts fear alien invasion would be more like ‘Independence Day’ than ‘E.T.’
Far easier to launch a ‘seed’ from light years away which on arrival blossoms, sucking the solar system into a 2-dimansional object. No muss, no fuss, and certainly no danger.
Or take an object and accelerate it to near light speed and aim it at Earth. Instant no earth. No muss, no fuss, and certainly no danger.
Aliens: keeping their hands clean since 5 billion years ago ...
In space no one can hear you scream.
Well, come and get it you alien turds!
I’m pretty sure my wife bought me a new pair of alien ass-kicking boots for Christmas and I’m itching to break them in!
They won’t need to worry about no warp drive baloney when my boot connects with their posteriors. They’ll be doing warp bazillion when they go sailing past Mars.
And I’ll barbecue the ones I don’t kick.
I’ve got my own special alien barbecue sauce. Lots of beer in it. And paprika.
We’re having company, so send your whole damn invasion fleet. My cousins can really wolf down some barbecued alien wings.
How do you get the enzymes off? I scrub & scrub . . .
Worse than scaling bass!
Dunk em in boiling water and their feathers come right off.
Thanks BenLurkin. Sorry, just saw this.
