Two Asteroids Just Flew Past Earth Closer Than the Moon

Asteroids GW9 (20 feet by 46 feet) and GP28 (12 feet by 26) zipped past Earth multiple times today, both at distances closer than the moon. No danger of collision was expected and none occurred, but people were probably too busy worrying about the dead birds and fishes, or whatever it is this week, to get in proper illogical freak-out mode anyway.
