Earth's Second Moon

A 3-mile-wide Trojan asteroid named Cruithne has become Earth's second moon. It completes an eccentric horseshoe orbit every 770 years and will continue to do so for at least another 5,000 years. Cruithne is unlikely to be the first or last asteroid captured in this way but a team from Queen Mary and Westfield University in London say that it is "almost impossible" for asteroids in such orbits to hit us.

"Cruithne" ("Cruidne") has seven sons "for whom the Pictish race and the seven principal divisions of Pictish territory were said to be named."

"Cruithne is given only a father in the Colbertine MS (Cruidne filius Cinge), but in the Irish version of the "Historia Britonum" he is given the following pedigree, tracing all the way back to the Biblical Noah: Cruithne mic Cinge mic Luchtain mic Parrthalan mic Agnoinn mic Buain mic Mais mic Fathecht mic Jafeth mic Noe."

Pict: a member of a possibly non-Celtic people who once occupied Great Britain, carried on continual border wars with the Romans, and about the ninth century became amalgamated with
the Scots. (Webster's)

CRUITHNE, CRUITHNICH, men of the grain, confers exactly with the Celtic "Breatan," a Briton or Pict. Some have said that the original bearer of this name had seven eponymous children who divided Alba (Scotland) among themselves, thus naming the ancient provinces: Cet (Marr and Buchan); Fiobh (Fife); Cirech (Angus and Mearns); Cat(Caithness); Folta (Atholl); Moireabh
(Moray) and Fortriu (Strathearn). Two thousand years before the Christian era, legend says that the Cruithne, who lived on the Continent, were hired by the Milesians of Ireland as mercenaries. The Irish people who lived about Inver Slaigne in the extreme southwest were, at the time, plagued by a tribe of virulent visitors from the east who were decimating the population using poisoned arrows. The Picts were were invited to fight for the Irish in return for land and pay. They were successful at eliminating the unwanted element, and were rewarded with a grant of land. Sadly, they were almost as barbaric as the earlier strangers and the chief of that quarter, a man named Crimmthann decided that they needed to be persuaded to "pass on over." Three Pictish chieftains were therefore given Irish wives and granted land in Alba, and according to Seumas McManus this was their wellspring in the land now called Scotland. This is not a universal interpretation of events; it is more usually supposed that the Picts were the early Britons and they are thought to have been in place in Scotland before the Gaels arrived in Ireland .
