We have been hearing the media reports of some massive asteroid that will closely pass earth on Christmas 2015. This is not all, some reports rumored that the huge asteroid could cause earthquakes on the planet. Sounds terrible but thank God as the reports have been denied by asteroid experts at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The object traveling in the space is not as huge as some are claiming it to be. Its size is about 1.24 miles, or 2 kilometers wide.
The asteroid will surely pass by planet earth but on a quite safe distance. The object will reportedly be 28 times the distance between earth and moon and would not be visible to human eye anywhere on earth. For those interested in it, will be passing the earth around 8:08 a.m. EST (1300 p.m. GMT). Lastly its not a threat to earth at all. So keep on preparing for your Christmas and have a blast.
