Asteroid taller than Empire State Building to fly close to Earth


A massive asteroid taller than the Empire State Building is expected to skim past Earth on Saturday, June 6.

According to the Daily Star, the asteroid, dubbed 163348 (2002 NNF) by the Space Administration, is estimated to be between 820 ft and 1870ft, making it potentially bigger than the Empire State Building.

Scientists do not think the asteroid will collide with Earth, but are keeping a close eye on it in case it enters Earth’s atmosphere.
