Asteroid Toutatis
Image credit: NASA

Uploader comment: One of many asteroids, Toutatis makes frequent close approaches to Earth at a currently minimum distance of 2.3 times the distance from the Moon. Radar images show Toutatis to have an highly irregular shape - each 'lobe' measuring 4.6 and 2.4 kilometers in width respectively.
