Enormous Asteroid Is Passing Close by Earth in Two Weeks Time

Enormous Asteroid Is Passing Close by Earth in Two Weeks Time:

On 1 September, a mammoth 4.4 kilometer (2.7 mile) chunk of rock will pass within an astronomical whisker of our planet – the largest near-Earth object to come this close since NASA set up its Near Earth Observations program in 1998. 

But .. it’s far far away. 

18 times the distance between Earth and the Moon this asteroid poses no threat..
