Happy Near Miss Day

Happy Near Miss Day - Apocalyptic Fiction for TeensOn this day in 1989, the Earth had a near miss with what would have been an apocalyptic asteroid named Asclepius. How close of a call was it? The asteroid passed through exactly where the Earth was just six hours before. The scariest part is that scientists didn’t even know about the asteroid until March 31, when it had already passed!

So in honor of the day that we unknowingly avoided the apocalypse, here are some riveting reads about asteroids pummeling earth, nuclear fallout, natural disasters, and all kinds of apocalyptic fictional fun. After all, what’s a better way to say, “Yay, we survived!” than with a good book?
