A potentially hazardous asteroid is travelling towards earth and is likely to cross the planet’s path on Saturday, according to NASA.
According to the agency, the asteroid—163373 (2002 PZ39)—will approach earth at 11 am GMT on Saturday.
According to the Express UK, the asteroid is moving towards the earth at a very high speed—at 57,240 km per hour. Since it has a diameter spanning 3,280 feet, the asteroid is extremely large in size. According to the report, NASA said it is bigger than even the largest man-made structures.
“Potentially Hazardous Asteroids (PHAs) are currently defined based on parameters that measure the asteroid’s potential to make threatening close approaches to the Earth,” according to a NASA statement.
