OUTER SPACE — A mysterious object hurtles toward Earth — today on Friday the 13th no less — and Bruce Willis is nowhere to be found?

Relax people, the sky isn’t falling.

It’s just a piece of space junk, appropriately named “WTF,” that’s been floating around. Most of it will burn up on entry; the rest will fall in the ocean.

Blah blah blah. We just want to see the epic light show as it streaks across the sky.
