NASA warns that the Jumbo Jet size asteroid is on Earth today



NASA warned that a huge asteroid of the same size as Jumbo Jet is currently occupying our planet.

The asteroid, dubbed 2019 BC, will "approach" the approach to the Earth at about 17.59 am, reaching 29,500 miles per hour.

Fortunately, at that moment the asteroid will remain about three million kilometers from Earth.

However, this distance is considered "close" by NASA.

It will pass our planet around 6 pm tonight

2019 BC measure about 31-69 meters in diameter.

To put this in perspective, at the upper end of that estimate, it's the same size as the Jumbo Jet!

Before you begin to panic about the upcoming end of the world, the good news is that 2019 BC there is not much chance of hitting the Earth.

NASA says: "NASA does not know about an asteroid or comet at the moment of a collision with the Earth, so the likelihood of a major collision is quite small.

"In fact, the best we can say is that there is no big facility to hit the Earth at any time in the next several hundred years."
