    Science Asteroid to Pass Extremely Close By Earth On Monday


    UPDATE for 5:35 p.m. ET: NASA has recalculated the time of closest approach for this event to be about 3 1/2 hours later than initially reported. The change is reflected below.

    Here's something to dwell on as you head to work next week: A small asteroid the size of a tour bus will make an extremely close pass by the Earth on Monday, but it poses no threat to the planet

    The asteroid will make its closest approach at 1:14 p.m. EDT (1714 GMT) on June 27 and will pass just over 7,500 miles (12,000 kilometers) above the Earth's surface, NASA officials say. At that particular moment, the asteroid which scientists have named 2011 MD will be sailing high off the coast of Antarctica, almost 2,000 miles (3,218 km) south-southwest of South Africa.

    The Earth is expected to come face-to-face with an asteroid today, but experts say it's nothing to be alarmed about.
    The space rock, dubbed 2011 MD, will pass just 7,600 miles above the planet about 1 p.m., according to experts at NASA's Near-Earth Object Program.
    They say it poses no threat.

    "An orbital analysis indicates there is no chance it will actually strike [the] Earth," NASA said on its website.

    The small asteroid measures only 33 feet long, scientists said, and will pass over the southern part of the Atlantic Ocean.
