NASA finds three large rocks heading towards Earth
December 01, 2019

NASA’s asteroid trackers have found three large rocks heading on their way to Earth trajectories.

The asteroids are expected to scrape by the planet at separate times on Sunday.   

NASA’s trackers estimate the fastest of the three rocks is barrelling through space at speeds of nearly 22,750mile per hour.

The rocks are all comets and asteroids racing around the Sun on trajectories that bring them incredibly close to our home planet.

NASA scientists say that just a very few of these bodies are potential hazards to Earth and by understanding more about these space rocks now, we are better prepared to take appropriate measures in the future.
