NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) has warned that another potentially hazardous asteroid is hurtling towards the Earth

Bigger than the Empire state building, the space rock dubbed 2013 BO76 has a diameter of 450 metres

In addition to this, the massive asteroid would travel at a speed of 49,513 kilometers per hour although it poses no threat to the Earth considering the distance in between.

The JPL even released a map showing the orbit of the asteroid which overlaps that of the Earth and even Mars.

In the picture, the asteroid's orbit can be spotted in the colour white whereas the orbit of Earth and Mars are represented in blue and red colours respectively.

The asteroid 2013 BO76 came closest to our planet in 2013 and was about 78,88,295 kilometers from Earth.
