Another Massive Asteroid To Whiz Past Earth In April

Another Massive Asteroid To Whiz Past Earth In April

If this headline seems familiar, it’s because the same thing happened about 6 months ago. Last September, a 1400′ asteroid named FF14 whizzed past our planet. Now scientists are tracking another large space rock, 1998OR2, which should pass our planet late next month. This one is about the size of Manhattan, but don’t worry. Scientists say it poses no threat to our planet as it will be much further away than the moon.
