Two asteroids to fly safely past Earth

To put it in perspective, the asteroid is predicted to pass under communication and weather satellites in orbit, travelling at over 40,000 kmph when it swooshes past Earth.

In a statement by NASA, the asteroid 2000 QW7 has passed our planet from a distance of 3.3 million miles.

The asteroid 2000 QW7 is between 290 metres and 650 metres wide and is nearly 828 metres tall. Thankfully, NASA assures us that's not going to happen any time soon. Depending on how much time we had before impact, a mission to destroy a threatening space rock may be possible, but if one truly snuck up on us we'd have little choice but to cross our fingers and hope for the best.

2000 QW7, the skyscraper-sized asteroid, should whiz past Early at 7:54 p.m. EST.

Experts at B612 Foundation, a non-profit organization whose mission is to protect Earth from asteroid impact, say while this is not a threat to our planet today, it could be in the very distant future, as its orbit will cause it to repeatedly pass near Earth. The agency expects the asteroid to approach the planet from a distance of 0.03518 astronomical units or around 3.3 million miles away.

The Pan-STARRS telescope was also operating and captured part of the sky where the asteroid could be seen. It can spot small asteroids half a day before they arrive at Earth and could point to larger asteroids days before.

First up will be asteroid 2010 C01, which is about 400 to 850 feet (120 to 260 meters) in size and will fly by late on Friday, Sept. 13.

NASA's Near-Earth Object (NEO) Observations Program scouts, tracks, and monitors near-Earth asteroids and comets.

While it's extremely unlikely that this asteroid will hit Earht, NASA's chief, Jim Bridenstine, has warned that more needs to be done to protect Earth from a killer asteroid collision in the near future. Asteroid 2006 QQ23 is less than a mile long, but the biggest known asteroid that orbits our sun is about 21 miles long, though asteroids of that size are rare.
