Empire State Building Sized Asteroid To Pass Earth Saturday

Imagine a floating building speeding through space thousands of miles an hour whizzing by Earth.

That's what's happening this weekend when an asteroid the size of the Empire State Building zooms by the planet at a very close distance, buuuuuuut not close enough to do anything. So that's good, right?

The asteroid, named Asteroid 2002 NN4, is between 820 and 1,870 feet in diameter — will be cruising past Earth this Saturday, according to NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, which monitors evens such as these.

A NASA spokesperson said not to worry about the space rock. It will NOT hit Earth.

Phew.
