NASA doesn’t believe that a collision is likely to happen but if it does it will be “Hazardous.”

The asteroid is about 6.5 feet in diameter and was first identified in California’s Palomar Laboratory in 2018.

Paul Chodas, director of Nasa’s Centre for Near-Earth Studies, said: “It’s really cool to see a small asteroid come by this close because we can see the Earth’s gravity dramatically bend its trajectory.”
