Another new moon (perhaps)

Scientists are speculating that a recently discovered object may be Earth's third moon. See this article for more details. It's not very big, but doesn't appear to be space junk...

(To be honest, even though it's a major site in Stephen Baxter's Manifold: Space I hadn't realised that Cruithne was anything other than a NEO asteroid. Check the link for some Java simulations of its complex 1:1 resonant orbit.)
