Close Call with Huge Asteroid Headed to Earth January 26th

NASA has warned of an impending asteroid pass – and says it will be the closest until 2027.

The asteroid, designated 2004 BL86, will safely pass about three times the distance of Earth to the moon on January 26.

It will be the closest by any known space rock this large until asteroid 1999 AN10 flies past Earth in 2027.
