On Saturday, an asteroid will pass by Earth that’s larger than some of the tallest buildings on the planet.
Two gigantic asteroids, touted as minor planets, will fly past the Earth on September 14, warned National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). The warning came from NASA’s Centre for Near Earth Object Studies (NEOS).
These two gigantic asteroids are 2000 QW7 and 2010 CO1.
2000 QW7, which is as big as the size of Burj Khalifa (the world’s tallest building in Dubai) is all set to fly close to the Earth on September 14. 2000 QW7 is approximately 290 to 650 metres wide.
This is not the first this asteroid that has approached the Earth. Earlier, it had first approached our planet on September 1, 2000.
