Giant Asteroid Is Speeding Towards Earth



(New York, NY) -- Scientists are saying you shouldn't worry about the giant asteroid speeding towards Planet Earth.

Asteroid 2016 NF23 will pass by the Earth on Wednesday. It's getting a lot of attention because NASA says it's roughly the size of Egypt's Great Pyramid.

 Scientists point out, however, that a close call by space standards is still pretty far. The giant asteroid will brush past Earth at over three-million miles away.
