Don't Look Up!
NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory is projecting a significant asteroid fly-by today. The closest it will get will be around 1:51 pm PST when it's expected to come within 1,231,184 miles of Earth. That might not seem like a lot, but it will be our closest encounter with an asteroid since 1933 and it's twice as big as the Empire State Building!
Because of that, NASA is calling this asteroid "potentially hazardous" for the "potential to make threatening close approaches to the Earth."
No need to be alarmed, yet. [CNN]
