A 4 billion-year-old comet 80 miles wide is headed toward Earth

Dot

An ancient comet, believed to be over 4 billion years old is headed towards the Earth.

Dot

The massive comet is at least 80 miles across, making it twice the width of Rhode Island.

Dot

It’s currently speeding towards the Earth at 22,000 miles per hour.

Dot

It’s hurtling inward from the edge of our solar system. Luckily, we won’t have to worry about the comet impacting the Earth.

Dot

Astronomers say it will never pass closer than 1 billion miles from the Sun. That’s a little farther than the distance between the Earth and Saturn.

Dot

The ancient comet is expected to pass that close to the Earth sometime in 2031.
