Massive asteroid to whiz by Earth next month

An asteroid larger than the Empire State Building will come uncomfortably close to planet Earth next month.

Dubbed Asteroid 2000 QW7, it’s estimated to be between 1,000 – 2,100 feet in diameter, the size of some of the planet’s tallest buildings.

Fortunately, astronomers say QW7 will still be about 3 million miles away when it passes by on Sept. 14 and should pose no danger. Nevertheless, NASA says it will keep tracking the asteroid.
