Creator's note Hadria Beth

We've observed binary asteroids before, but it's incredibly rare to see two that are the same size orbiting each other like this! Like all near-Earth asteroids, it's believed these are remnants of our solar system's formation. You can read more about these two here: http://www.astronomy.com/news/2018/07/rare-equal-mass-binary-asteroid-discovered-near-earth
