Asteroid 2015 DR215 LIVE – Fears asteroid could hit Earth as exact date revealed for next ‘close’ large asteroid TODAY

A HUGE asteroid made a “close approach” to Earth in the past hours and another one will swing very close to our planet this weekend.

Asteroid 2015 DR215 was expected by experts at Nasa to buzz past Earth in the early hours of Friday morning, with the agency’s “close approach” chart listing the exact time as 6.40 UTC.

The asteroid stands out as one of the largest on the table, but another one is following close behind.

Asteroid 2022 ES3 will end up between the moon and Earth at around 2.18pm ET on Sunday, March 13, Newsweek reported.

The Virtual Telescope Project will host a livestream of the asteroid’s “very close, but safe, encounter with us” on its WebTV page beginning at 18.30 UTC on Sunday.

Asteroid 2022 ES3 is smaller than Asteroid 2015 DR215, which, at up to 1,607 feet wide, is three times larger than the Great Pyramid in Egypt. An asteroid of this size would cause some serious damage if it hit Earth.
