Missing asteroid found: "Known as Asteroid 1937 UB, or 'Hermes' for short, the asteroid set a record for closest recorded approach to the Earth on Oct. 30, 1937. In the 66 years since then it had not been located. ...

"Brian Skiff of the Lowell Observatory in Arizona spotted an interesting bright object with the LONEOS telescope in the early hours of Wednesday morning. ... he and other scientists were able to work together to identify the object as Hermes, which will again pass Earth Nov. 4—by a comfortable margin of 4.2 million miles."
