How to post more photos than the rules allow – use collages. You can combine several of your pics into a single collage pic by using this free (you need to provide email) online tool. So by using this tool, each pic submitted may actually be many more pics combined. https://www.fotor.com/create/collage/

Telling friends about DigameXtra: Please do not hand out the submission email to persons who are not already Digamextra subscribers!!! These new people are sending in ads without having read an issue or the rules page, with many errors, creating a ton of extra work for me answering their incorrect submissions.

How Did We Miss This Week’s Shockingly Close Asteroid Flyby?: This week, an asteroid flew by the Earth, coming as close as 44342 miles away. No, you shouldn’t worry about this specific asteroid (anymore, at least), but you might wonder how we missed it.
A team at the SONEAR Observatory in Brazil first noticed the asteroid on Wednesday, and it appeared in another American team’s data later that day, before flying by hours later. The asteroid itself was between 53 and 130 meters in diameter (187 and 426 feet), or as several astronomers have referred to it, “a city killer.” It was not a city killer, of course—it didn’t hit a city, and probably would not have hit a city had it hit the Earth. Still, how do you miss something like that?
Well, these asteroids are incredibly faint, and a few hundred feet might sound large if it pummels the Earth, but that’s incredibly small on astronomical scales. Even if these rocks eventually get close enough that we can actually detect them, survey telescopes must be looking at the right place in the sky when the blips pass by.
