Halloween's Day Asteroid encounter with Earth Poses no threat - NASA

Fear not! It's not DOOMSDAY yet though this asteroid 2015 TB154 believed to be around 1.5 miles (2.5km wide) will make a close encounter with Earth on Halloween's day, NASA has said the rock 'poses no threat' of impact...so you can sleep with both eyes closed.

An asteroid just quarter-of-a-mile wide could cause global devastation..


The space rock, named 2015 TB145, will safely fly past our planet at 78,000mph (125,500km/h) at 310,000 miles (499,000km) away.

That's around 1.3 times the distance between the Earth   and the moon, allowing anyone with a telescope to see the event.
