A mini-moon is an object orbiting a planet but isn't actually a moon. And in the latest discovery, a total of two mini-moons have been spotted around Earth. The second mini-moon has been orbiting us for around 2.7 years and a lot has been discovered about the mysterious space object since then.
The object has been named as 2020 CD3 and recently it came really close to Earth. At 8,100 miles, it was at the closest it has ever been.
