The month of May has been relatively quiet so far in terms of asteroids coming close to our planet.

While there have been a few small space rocks flying past the planet at a considerable distance, and a few meteors lighting up the night sky here and there, nothing noteworthy has happened.

Dot

There was just one incident where a 1,600-feet wide asteroid was seen on May 15th but thankfully, it did not come close to Earth.

Dot

But now, concerns are rising as an asteroid more than double its size is headed towards the Earth.

Dot

A gigantic 3,400-feet wide asteroid will be making its closest approach to the Earth on May 27th, just 8 days from now.

Interestingly, if everything goes well and the asteroid does not make it towards us, astronomy enthusiasts can see this space rock floating around using a pair of professional binoculars.
