Near-Earth asteroid was blasted from a crater on the moon, study finds

 Hey, Space Placers!

Asteroid Kamo'oalewa source? A nearly circular, grey-colored moon crater.

Meet the lunar crater Giordano Bruno. It’s 13 miles (21 km) wide and located on the moon’s far side. This mosaic image of the crater is from NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC)/ NASA/ GSFC/ Arizona State University.

Get the low down on a piece of the Moon that became a Near-Earth Asteroid.

There have to be pieces of the Earth that are asteroids too as well as "meteorites on the Moon from Earth".  Why? Because our planet has had impact craters that blasted LOTS of material out into space.

Future astronauts and space missions to the Moon and Asteroid Belt will discover these ancient Earthroids (my term).
