Nasa reveals 1,600ft asteroid bigger than MOST buildings will make ‘close approach’ in six days ~ May 10, 2022


Editor’s Note: Let’s all please remember that NASA stands for “Never A Straight Answer”. Let that sink in, and then decide to BE in…

Quantum Joy!


EARTH is braced for a close brush with a massive asteroid bigger than the Empire State Building in a matter of days.

Nasa has been keeping an eye on the rock and has revealed it’ll be a “close approach” in space terms.

Thankfully, it will still be well over 3.5million miles away, so there’s nothing to panic about.

Experts believe the asteroid is somewhere between 220 and 490 meters wide.

At the maximum possible length, that would make it bigger than the Empire State Building, the Shard and the Eiffel Tower.

It would dwarf the Statue of Liberty too.

The space rock – officially known as 388945 (2008 TZ3) – is expected to make its closest approach on Sunday, May 15.

But this isn’t the first time we’ve seen this asteroid – it’s actually passed us before with no problem.

Last time it paid a visit was in May 2020.

Back then it came even closer, at 1.7million miles away.

It routinely gives Earth a wave about every two years, as it circles around the Sun just as we do.

And this weekend’s fly by will be the closest we see the asteroid come for the rest of our lifetime.

It is due to whizz past again in May 2024 but much further, at 6.9million miles.

The next time it’ll come anywhere near as close as this weekend won’t be until May 2163.
