The asteroid, dubbed 2019 SX5, is estimated by NASA to measure between 62 and 140 metres in diameter.
On the greater finish of that estimate, this implies the house rock could possibly be as large because the Nice Pyramid of Giza.
The house rock will sweep previous Earth at 00:07 BST, at which level it is going to be travelling at a staggering 48,854 miles/hour!
Fortunately, it is going to be 4.2 million miles away from Earth at the moment. Whereas this would possibly sound like a big distance, NASA nonetheless classifies the passing as a ‘close approach.’
2019 SX5’s passing comes simply days after a swarm of asteroids made an in depth strategy with our planet.
On October 8, seven asteroids handed Earth, together with one dubbed 2019 TW1, which measures as much as 16 metres in diameter – making it virtually twice as large as a London bus!
Whereas this all sounds relatively scary, NASA reassures that there at the moment aren’t any asteroids on a collision course with Earth.
NASA defined: “NASA is aware of of no asteroid or comet at the moment on a collision course with Earth, so the chance of a significant collision is kind of small.
“In reality, as finest as we will inform, no massive object is prone to strike the Earth any time within the subsequent a number of hundred years.”
