Sweet Asteroid of Death teases us once again.

Express: NASA asteroid Earth approach: MILE-WIDE asteroid with its own MINI MOON set to skim Earth.
NASA has warned an asteroid big enough to boast its own mini moon will this week make a near-Earth approach.

Asteroid 1999 KW4 is actually two objects, consisting of a larger space rock measuring 0.8 mile across (1.3km) and a mini moon orbiting it.

It will only travel as close as 3.2 million miles from Earth, which equals about 13 times the distance between the Earth and the moon, CNET reported.

The flyby will be visible starting May 24 and last until May 27. If you miss it, you’ll have to wait until 2036 to see it again.

The second image...it's a two-day old muffin marked down half-price in the bakery shelf at Starbucks.
