NASA:Almost 2 km wide  asteroid approaching Earth

Potentially Hazardous

So far,

the year 2022 has been filled with astronomical surprises.

We ended the previous

 month with a total solar eclipse and we close the month of May with a gigantic asteroid making a close approach towards the Earth.

The situation is

concerning as the asteroid is 1.8-kilometers wide.

For a visual reference,

that is more than twice the size of Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world.

And if it were

 to deviate towards our planet, it would easily cause a global disaster.

The asteroid is expected

 to make its closest approach to the Earth at a distance of 40,24,182 kilometers on May 27th.
