You know how uncomfortable it is when someone invades your personal space? Think of that happening on a global scale thanks to a rude asteroid.
The asteroid, the size of a football stadium, is going to be very close when it shoots past Earth today, at least "close" in astronomical terms. The giant space rock will be one-point-one million miles away when it flies by. That's a long way, but it's only a little more than four-and-a-half times the distance from Earth to the moon.
Astronomers say that's really close, as these things are measured. It's the closest a big asteroid has come since 2004. As astronomy website is calling it "The Rock," after actor and former WWE star Dwayne Johnson.
The best time to see the asteroid float by is tomorrow and Friday, but don’t miss it. The space rock isn’t supposed to come back around for 500 years.Source: AOL
