ASTEROID ‘to fly past Earth closer than the moon tomorrow,’ scientists warn

An asteroid discovered just eight days ago, the size of a double decker bus will give our planet a close shave tomorrow, astronomers have warned.

Only Eight days warning? What if the asteroid was not going to miss? What if it was a bit bigger and was going to wipe out your city? What would you do?

Earth will be entirely safe: the asteroid will fly past at a distance of 0.57 lunar distances, or 136,000 miles.

The asteroid was spotted by the Catalina Sky Survey, Arizona, on April 9, and is thought to be between 42-92 feet.
