An asteroid called 2018 VP1 will approach earth on November 2, the day before the US election, NASA said recently. It may even enter our atmosphere, but it is not a threat to the earth. NASA’s asteroid watch, which closely monitors the space rocks, tweeted on Sunday. The diameter of asteroid 2018 VP1 is about 6.5 feet (2 meters). “It currently has a 0.41% chance of entering our planet’s atmosphere, but if it does, it will disintegrate due to its very small size,” NASA said. < / P > < p > since the discovery of the asteroid at the Zwicky transient facility of the Paloma Observatory near San Diego in 2018, this year’s flyby will be the first close flyby of an asteroid to the earth. But even though scientists say the event is close, the space rock will remain far away from Earth: more than 260000 miles away. Global Tech
