The asteroid 2014 DX110, which is 98ft (30m) across, will pass less than 1 lunar distance from Earth, offering an interesting show for those who want to pursue it through a telescope.
The Space rock will reach a distance of less than 350,000 miles away from our planet at 9:07 p.m GMT. You can watch the Images of the asteroid live at the site Virtual Telescope Project and Slooh at 20:30 GMT.
The astronomer Bob Berman, from the Virtual Telescope Project and Slooh, says that every few centuries an even more massive asteroid strikes us but fortunately they usually impacting unpopulated areas (e.g Antarctica) or in an ocean. Also, once in a century, there is undiscovered asteroid which hit our planet and is not noticed in time, as it happened on February 15, 2013 in Russia.
The asteroid 2014 DX 110 is an Apollo class asteroid (asteroids that crosses the orbit of Earth). So far, NASA has detected 240 Apollos asteroids, but experts estimate that there are at least 2,000 such rocks with a diameter of 1 km or larger which could hit Earth. If it hit Earth, an asteroid of this size would throw so much dust into the atmosphere that would block sunlight for several years.
