NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory has recently announced that asteroid, dubbed TB145 will get very close to Earth on October 31  around 11:14 a.m., at 78,000 mph.

The asteroid will be the closest object to fly by Earth since NEO 2004 XP14 flew past at 1.1 lunar distances.

According to NASA asteroid TB145  which measures about 920 to 2,034 feet in diameter will safely pass the Earth.

Alarmingly, the asteroid was discovered only ten days ago by Hawaii’s asteroid-watch group but don’t worry — it’s not considered a threat to the Earth.

Hopefully NASA is right.

In 2013, a 20-meter wide meteorite traveling at a speed of 19 km/s exploded in Russia and over 1,200 people were injured.

We do not to tell you what an asteroid 20 times larger and almost twice as fast would do if it actually hit the Earth?
The asteroid TB145 should be visible in the Northern Hemisphere to astronomers with telescopes.
