Nasa confirmed that the asteroid named 153201 2000 W0107, will pass earth by only 1.3 astronomical miles (4,302,775km) of earth.
The Asteroid was discovered by a group of scientists in New Mexico, 20 years ago on the 29th of November.
Exactly 20 years after it has been discovered, this giant Asteroid will be the closest it has been to earth.
Is there any reason to panic?
no, there is absolutely no reason to panic, this time.
There are over 1M known asteroids in our galaxy, but there are enough reasons to believe that a meteor hitting earth is a very rare occasion.
