Large asteroid bigger than London Bridge to pass Earth
388945 (2008 TZ3) is heading in the planet's direction at a speed of approximately 8.22 kilometers per second
It will pass us by at a distance of over 5.7 million kilometers.
this large asteroid has an estimated size of 292.8 meters,
the Moon orbits the Earth at a distance of roughly 384,000 kilometers, so this is much farther but is actually much closer on a cosmic scale
Asteroid impacts are one of the worst possible natural disasters that could possibly occur due to their potential for sheer destruction
over 300 meters wide like the asteroid Apophis – could destroy an entire continent
NASA has declared the Earth free of risk of any catastrophic asteroid impacts for the next century
