NASA: Huge Asteroid To Fly By Earth

NASA says a rock about the size of six football fields will pass close to Earth Wednesday.

The asteroid, nicknamed "The Rock", will be more than a million miles away and scientists say there’s absolutely no chance of a collision.

Smaller asteroids pass within that distance all the time, but it’s been 13 years since such a large one came close.

You’ll be able to see it with a telescope, or you can watch it online.
