It is time to thank your stars. A 1,000-feet wide "beast" at a speed of 50,400 km per hour - that could wipe out an entire city - will zoom past by Earth within a range of a million miles today.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has reportedly revealed that the chances of the 1,300-foot-wide asteroid impacting Earth have increased following ongoing investigations.
The US space agency has narrowed its hunt for an asteroid to capture to three, NASA said.
NASA is planning to launch a new mission in 2016 to find potentially hazardous asteroids and predict their impact threat to Earth.
