According to NASA, on March 21, the Earth will be the largest celestial body among the asteroids ever discovered.
According to the publication, the asteroid 2001 FO32 has a diameter of 1.7 km. However, despite its gigantic size, it will be impossible to see it with the naked eye.
It is noteworthy, however, that the asteroid is moving at high speed, although, as stated by NASA, this will not affect its trajectory.
NASA has designated 2001 FO32 a «Potentially Dangerous Astronomical Object,» but it poses no threat to our planet.
The asteroid will hit Earth for the second time in just 31 years, on March 22, 2052.
