Astronomers using the European Southern Observatory's Very Large Telescope in Chile have captured the most detailed images yet of a dog bone-shaped asteroid named Kleopatra. New observations provided more accurate estimates for its shape and mass, and show the bizarrely-formed space rock is approximately 168 miles long. The recent study also shed light on how Kleopatra's two moons, AlexHelios and CleoSelene, were formed. Pictured: A size comparison between asteroid Kleopatra and northern Italy.
