As indicated in the agency's asteroid database, the space rock is now traveling at a speed of 18,200 miles per hour and has an estimated diameter of around 820 feet.
After a "city killer" asteroid bearing the positive-sounding name 2019 OK snuck up on us in July, with most astronomers hardly aware of it, talk about "potentially hazardous objects" has resumed, with the upcoming 2019 OU1 flyby being described as one potentially exceeding the Great Giza Pyramid in size.
A nonprofit foundation president of B612, Danica Remy, said that it's certain that "we're going to get hit" by the asteroid.
She added: "The real issue is that we need to have an inventory of all the asteroids".
That fly-over qualifies as a crisis averted since, as noted by NASA, the asteroid measures a whopping 1,870 feet in diameter, more than 400 feet bigger than the Empire State Building is tall. But it will not threaten that may lead to the destruction of the planet as a whole, as NASA has mentioned.
The space rock will come 10 times closer to Earth than Venus, our nearest neighbor, when it passes by at a distance of 0.049 astronomical units (4.6 million miles) while traveling at speeds of around 10,400 mph.

However, the hazard that it may inflict still remains. Based on their latest findings, Earth is now not in danger of getting hit by one of these giant asteroids.
According to CNEOS manager Paul Chodas there are very few asteroids identified by NASA that have a chance of hitting Earth, one of which, Bennu, is the subject of frequent monitoring by the agency. If an impact occurs, it will trigger disaster in the affected area.
Scientists think that the impact site on Mars called Lomonosov, which is one hundred and twenty kilometers (120km) deep and the same height as the estimated depth of the ocean, must have been the ground zero for the mega-tsunami that struck the surface of Mars.
