A large asteroid is headed for Earth and will harmlessly swoop by our planet tomorrow morning in what NASA describes as a “close approach.” Estimated to measure between 288 feet to 656 feet in diameter, the space rock is known as asteroid 2018 VX8 — and it won’t be coming alone.

According to asteroid trackers at NASA’s Center For Near-Earth Object Studies (CNEOS), three other space rocks are due to swing by our planet tomorrow, the closest of which will buzz Earth from around 3.5 times the distance to the moon.

Biggest Of The Bunch

Of the four asteroids expected to pay Earth a visit on Sunday, 2018 VX8 is the biggest and the most formidable. First discovered in late 2018, this space rock is a frequent visitor of our corner of the solar system. Over the past century, the asteroid has performed more than 30 flybys of Earth. However, tomorrow’s encounter will be the closest that asteroid 2018 VX8 has ever gotten to our planet.

Our celestial visitor is expected to pop by for its closest approach to Earth in the early hours of Sunday morning. Data from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California, shows that the space rock will barrel past our planet at 4:55 a.m. ET.

During tomorrow’s close brush with Earth, asteroid 2018 VX8 will only come within 1.46 million miles of the planet’s surface. That’s a little over six times the distance between Earth and the moon.

The asteroid will double back for another visit in a few years’ time. Its next flyby of Earth is expected to occur in 2027. However, during its next journey through the inner solar system, asteroid 2018 VX8 will only manage to creep in within 38.1 million miles of Earth’s surface.

2019 PDC approaches the Earth for well over a month after discovery, and it reaches its closest point of about 0.13 au on May 13. Unfortunately, the asteroid is too far away to be detected by radar, and it is not expected to pass close to the Earth again, until 2027.

The speedy asteroid, dubbed by NASA Asteroid 2019 JH7, shot past the Earth early this morning (Thursday, May 16). According to NASA’s asteroid-tracking systems, the space rock came dangerously close to our Earth around 1.06am BST (12.06am UTC). The incredible news comes just two days after NASA first observed the asteroid heading towards Earth on Tuesday, May 14. NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California, said the asteroid flew by on a so-called “Earth Close Approach” trajectory.

At it’s closest, Asteroid JH7 approached our home planet from 0.19 times the distance to the Moon.

In other words, the barreling space rock came within 44,618 miles (71,807km) of striking the Earth.

During the asteroid’s flyby, NASA said the space rock reached incredible speeds of around 9.64km per second or 21,564.07mph (34,704kmh).

NASA’s JPL further estimates the asteroid measures somewhere in the range of 10.1ft to 22.6ft (3.1m to 6.9m) in diameter.

At the upper end of the estimate, the asteroid is about as tall as an average giraffe and is just shorter than a London double-decker bus.
