NASA: After a brief period of calm, a massive asteroid is yet again headed towards the Earth, according to the American space agency.

The incoming asteroid is a massive 450-meters wide space rock, which can be compared to the famous Golden Gate Bridge located in San Francisco.

This large space rock, classified 418135 (2008 AG33), could have a diameter of up to 780 meters.

That’s more than twice the height of New York City’s famed skyscraper, the Empire State Building, which stands 381 meters tall from base to roof.

The asteroid will travel by the Earth at a speed of roughly 10.39 kilometers per second on April 28 at 2:46 a.m. UTC, or 10:46 p.m. EDT on April 27.

It’s a good thing that 418135 (2008 AG33) won’t collide with Earth because the result would almost probably be devastating.
