NASA rates any cosmic projectile with an approach distance of less than approximately 7.5 million kilometers (0.05 astronomical units) and measuring over 460 feet in diameter as "potentially hazardous".
The only matter of time before Earth is struck by a mega asteroid, the effect of which could possibly be many times stronger than a nuclear bomb, based on a leading scientist.
While it's classified by NASA as a "near-Earth object" it will make its closest approach at just after 3 am at a distance of about 4.6 million miles. As per McDonald, dreaded asteroid hits have happened in the past and the possibilities of such events in the future could not be ruled out.

The space agency has been working to pinpoint NEOs in the 140-meter range, with a goal of identifying at least 90 percent of these objects.
NASA has reported that it was about 45,000 miles from Earth on this Thursday. These have greater chances of hitting Earth since they are small enough to be easily affected by gravitational forces in space. The better technology will simply allow experts to narrow in on all the asteroids that "would potentially hit the earth" and consider the means on how to remove them, Wordon said.
Scientists are also considering essentially spray painting one side of an asteroid, which would cause it to be heated by the sun differently, Wordon said.
"Nevertheless, it's still going to have a global impact on transportation, networking, weather, and climate".
