image for Asteroid set for fly-past of Earth particularly scary for those with depth perception issues
To you and me, this looks like a rock. To those with macropsia, it looks like a planet sitting on their chest.

HARFOLD, Vt.--This week, an asteroid 1,300 feet in diameter will pass between Earth and the moon. Traveling at about 30,000 miles per hour and 200,000 above Earth, the normal, everyday person will be none the wiser.

For those, however, with depth perception issues, this occurrence could scare the living bejesus out of them.

"Particularly those people affected by macropsia," said Harfold State College professor of astrology Yeshi Patel, "will be especially freaked out. These people see objects much larger than normal. They also feel smaller, which doesn't do a lot for their self-esteem."

Experts recommend that those people suffering from macropsia stay at home from work and school on Wednesday and not look out the window.
