Trojan Asteroid Dances ahead of the Earth

Trojan asteroid dances ahead of the Earth as it orbits of the sun.

The asteroid, called 2010 TK7. LOL.

Astronomers have spotted a huge lump of rock that hurtles throughspace ahead of the Earth in its orbit around the sun.
The rock, which is 300 metres across, is known as a "Trojan asteroid" because it shares Earth's orbit but remains far enough away it will never collide with the planet.
