NASA asteroid tracker: Space agency reveals 2,700FT space rock to make near-Earth approach


This asteroid will be at its closet point to the blue planet at 7.04pm GMT (2.04pm ET).

Measuring just 180ft (55m) across, it is significantly smaller than its predecessor.

And its other stats are also less impressive, with asteroid zooming through the cosmos at ‘just’ 22.33km/s (50,500mph)

The asteroid will also be far further away than Sunday’s earlier encounter, at 0.03582 AU (3,329,676 miles).
