Asteroid flies close by Earth

March 9, 2016

An asteroid whipped past the earth early on Tuesday morning around 3am NZ time.

The asteroid came closer than some of the communications satellites that orbit the planet!

The asteroid could pass the Earth again in a year’s time, but it would not hit the planet for at least another 100 years.

This asteroid is twice the size of the one that exploded over Russia in February 2013. That asteroid sent fireballs crashing to earth and injured 1200 people as its shock-wave shattered windows and damaged buildings across a wide area.
