Asteroid 3 times taller than Niagara Falls to pass Earth today!


Fall kicks off this Wednesday afternoon at 3:20 ET, but before that an asteroid larger than the Statue of Liberty will be zipping past Earth at 11am ET.

The asteroid, named 2021 NY1, is classified as a Near-Earth Object and is roughly 580 feet long, making it more than two times taller than Lady Liberty standing in New York Harbor and more than three times taller than Niagara Falls.

Don't worry, NASA says that it is NOT on a collision course with Earth. This is also the closest it is projected to pass by Earth through at least the year 2193.
