By Ukshep, 11/27/2016

Hey. Guess what? We've got 2 potentially hazardous objects that will be making close approaches to Earth in 2017 and 2018.

The three comets are 41P/Tuttle-Giacobini-Kresak, 45P/Honda-Mrkos-Pajdusakova, and 46P/Wirtanen. The comets will pass by Earth at distances ranging from 0.08 AU to 0.15 AU.
