The National Aeronautics And Space Administration (NASA) has issued a warning against a giant asteroid. It is supposed to be of the size of a pyramid.
This asteroid is expected to fly past through our planet in the morning. The planetary experts and other scientists have revealed that this asteroid is massive and has an expected diameter of around 556.7 feet.
Scientists have stated that this deadly asteroid is currently traveling at an alarming speed of over 33,700 mph. It is expected to approach Earth in the late hours of the morning, and the expected of its flypast has been estimated to be at 9:55 a.m. ET.
The U.S based space agency has assured that the contact with the massive asteroid will be a perfectly safe one, as the space rock will miss Earth by 3.6 million miles.
As per the reports drafted by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), this massive asteroid has been classified as an Apollo-type asteroid and has been identified as 2020 BR10. The near-Earth asteroid was first located by the scientists a month before, i.e., .e on January 17.
This asteroid had been thoroughly observed for 34 days, during which time NASA experts examined its orbital path to learn how close the asteroid would come to the planet’s surface.
This massive asteroid is considered one of the other deadly asteroids that are present in the Universe. The asteroid is reportedly 1.2 larger than the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt and is longer than that of Statue of Liberty by 1.8 times.
