Earth's Second Moon

Blimey. Earth has more than one moon...

And what's more, we might have just acquired a third

Earth's second one is called Cruithne. It was discovered in 1986 and it takes a convoluted horseshoe path around our planet as it is tossed about by the Earth's and the Moon's gravity.
