(Mirror) – This weekend, three enormous asteroids will make a ‘close approach’ to Earth, NASA has warned. The asteroids – the biggest of which is predicted to measure up to 30 meters across – will whizz past our planet on November 10. At around 14:03 GMT, an asteroid dubbed 2018 VS1 will pass the Earth. This asteroid is predicted to measure between 13-28 meters across – suggesting the asteroid could be five times as tall as a giraffe!
Thankfully, NASA’s trajectory estimates indicate that 2018 VS1 will be around 861,700 miles away from Earth during its closest approach. Just 16 minutes after 2018 VS1 passes our planet, another asteroid dubbed 2018 VR1 will swing by. This asteroid is predicted to measure up to 30 meters wide, but thankfully will pass at a distance of 3.12 million miles from Earth. READ MORE
