NASA warned that a big huge asteroid The Eiffel Tower will enter Earth’s orbit within a week.
A massive 1,082-foot-high space rock is heading towards us and is supposed to leave us on December 11th.
NASA is tracking asteroid 4660 Nereus as it is more than 492 feet long and 4.6 million miles from Earth.
This puts it in the “potentially dangerous” category.
However, do not panic, as the asteroid Nereus is not expected to have an impact on Earth.
If all goes well, it should be moving around our planet at 14,700 miles per hour.
NASA expects the space rocks to stay 2.4 million miles away from us.
This is about 10 times the distance between the Earth and the Moon.
It may seem far away, but it is actually close to near-Earth asteroids.
NASA considers anything within 120 million miles of Earth to be close to Earth (NEO).
Scientists are watching thousands of near-Earth objects to see if they are on a collision course with our planet.
NASA has a full schedule that is constantly updated.
Any fast-moving space object up to 4.65 million miles away is considered a “potential hazard” by space warning organizations.
A small change in its course could spell disaster on Earth.
The asteroid Nereus was first seen in 1982 by astronomer Eleanor Helen.
It orbits the Earth quite often, so NASA and the Japan Space Agency (JAXA) once considered it a “hit” by the Hayabusa spacecraft.
Instead, space agencies have agreed to target asteroid 25143 Itokawa as part of the asteroid’s double redirection test.
