NASA: A truck-sized asteroid is headed toward Earth one day before the November election

All things considered, 2020 continues showing signs of improvement constantly.

Amid a pandemic, common turmoil, and a troublesome US political decision season, we currently have a space rock zooming toward us.

On the day preceding the presidential vote, no less.

That’s right. The divine article known as 2018VP1 is anticipated to approach Earth on November 2, as indicated by the Center for Near-Earth Objects Studies at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. It was first distinguished at Palomar Observatory in Quite a while in 2018.

“Space rock 2018VP1 is extremely little, roughly 6.5 feet, and represents no danger to Earth. If it somehow happened to enter our planet’s air, it would break down because of its incredibly little size,” NASA said in an announcement. “NASA has been guided by Congress to find 90% of the close Earth space rocks bigger than 140 meters (459 feet) in size and reports on space rocks of any size.”

NASA says that “because of 21 perceptions spreading over 12.968 days,” the organization has decided the space rock likely – phew! – won’t have a profound effect, not to mention bring Armageddon.

Its possibility of hitting us is simply 0.41%, information show.

CNN has connected NASA for any extra or refreshed data yet has not heard back.
