New ‘moon’ found around Earth

The thing that’s so weird about this article is not the discovery of a possible new moon around Earth but the fact that it’s the third moon. Who knew there was a second?

Earth’s second one is called Cruithne. It was discovered in 1986 and it takes a convoluted horseshoe path around our planet as it is tossed about by the Earth’s and the Moon’s gravity.
