Jumbo Jet-Sized Asteroid Due to Whiz Past Planet on Tuesday Afternoon

Asteroid 2010 WC9

GETTY HUGE Asteroid 2010 WC9 will come incredibly close to Earth next week

Pacific Standard Time: 3:15 p.m.

According to EarthSky, it's traveling at speeds of more than 28,600 miles per hour.

However, an asteroid discovered earlier this month - ZJ99C60, spotted on May 8 - turned out to be a blast from the past as astronomers realized it was actually 2010 WC9 coming back after nearly eight years. The Arizona Catalina sky survey was first discovered on November 30, 2010, and astronomers watched until December 10, when it became too weak.

2010 WC9 completes one complete orbit every 1.12 years and approaches the sun as close as.78 astronomical units and as far away as 1.38 AU.

Terrified onlookers watched on as the float, representing the character Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty , went up in flames. According to "Disney Dan", the fire was extinguished quickly and cast members confirmed that "everyone is fine".

Another asteroid will fly by near Earth on Tuesday, May 15. However, 2010 WC9 could still do quite a bit of damage on a local scale if it were on a collision course with Earth (which it's not, for the foreseeable future). Your best bet for generating a refined track for the asteroid is to use NASA JPL's Horizons web interface to generate Right Ascension/Declination coordinates for the 2010 WC9 for your location.

Scientists are paying close attention to a fairly large asteroid that will soon pass through the earth. The diameter of the asteroid is estimated at 60-130 meters. "This asteroid was "lost" and then discovered again".

An asteroid which was lost in space for eight years is making a reappearance tomorrow - with an alarmingly close whizz past our planet. For those hoping to catch a glimpse of the asteroid, it will be visible with a telescope for some people.

According to NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, this is the closest it will come in 300 years, the report said.

Despite the large number of women who spoke out, Weinstein only made specific statements about Hayek and Lupita N'yongo - who claimed she was harassed by the star in 2011.

Not to worry: There's no chance the asteroid will hit us.

Although Tuesday's visitor won't be visible to the naked eye, star gazers might be able to catch a glimpse of it with a telescope.

Guy Wells, of the observatory, said: "We are planning to broadcast this asteroid live to our Facebook page if the weather forecast remains positive".

Just last month, astronomers spotted a slightly smaller asteroid for the first time just before it buzzed by us.

That being said, any further film, be it a team-up or standalone, will hinge heavily on the box office numbers for Deadpool 2 . One of the biggest reasons that Crews finally agreed to break into the genre was because Reynolds reached out directly to him.

Individuals may see the scene online and that the observatories of Northolt Branch at London will broadcast it live.
