(Spoiler alert: there’s nothing to worry about! This asteroid will be further from earth than the moon)
Oh 2020, you are just the year that keeps on giving…NASA has announced that a “potentially dangerous” asteroid is about to fly by the planet this Friday, July 24th. At over 556-feet long, the asteroid named “2020 ND” will be whizzing by the planet at nearly 30,000 miles per hour this Friday. NASA says the asteroid’s distance to Earth, at 3 million miles away, makes it “potentially dangerous.” It’s not the first time this space rock has come hurling close to earth…this will actually be 2020 ND’s 6th visit.
