The approaching asteroid is approximately 220 meters in diameter and is expected to travel past our planet at a speed of about 8 kilometres per second.

Yet another (relatively) close brush with a massive space rock awaits our planet in the coming days, according to NASA.

Coined “2008 GO20,” the asteroid is expected to safely pass through our planet’s orbit on 24 July at a speed of about 8 kilometres per second.

The space rock in question belongs to the a group of asteroids known as the Apollo asteroids whose orbit crosses that of Earth.
