NASA: A giant asteroid is passing Earth closer to the moon tomorrow

The US space agency NASA announced that a giant asteroid the size of a 10-story building will pass near the Earth on Thursday at a distance equal to half the distance between the earth and the moon.

According to the newspaper "The Independent" British, the agency said that the asteroid will pass about 136 thousand miles of land, avoiding a devastating collision with the ground.

NASA has warned that the orbital orbit of the asteroid shows that it may still pose a danger in the future, where it is estimated that it may at some point reach a point from Earth 7.5 to 30 meters.

NASA astronauts put the asteroid shortly after it was discovered on April 9 on the list of asteroids that pose a danger of colliding with Earth over the next 100 years.

It is difficult to accurately predict the exact path of the asteroid but is scheduled to pass close to Earth again in 2034, 2041 and 2048.
