NASA says asteroid is headed towards Earth near Election Day

All things considered, 2020 continues showing signs of the worst year ever.

In the midst of a pandemic, common agitation and a disruptive US political decision season, we presently have a asteriod zooming toward us.

On the day preceding the presidential vote, no less.

That’s right. The heavenly asteriod known as 2018VP1 is anticipated to approach Earth on November 2, as indicated by the Center for Near Earth Objects Studies at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

Its distance across is 0.002 km, or about 6.5 feet, as indicated by NASA’s information. It was first distinguished at Palomar Observatory in Quite a while in 2018.

NASA says there are three likely effects, yet “dependent on 21 perceptions spreading over 12.968 days,” the organization has decided the asteroid most likely – phew! – won’t have an immediate effect, not to mention bring Armageddon.

Its possibility hitting us is simply 0.41 percent, information show.
