Someone call Bruce Willis ASAP! There's a bus-sized asteroid heading in Earth's direction.
The asteroid will fly between the Earth and the moon today, February 2, sometime around 3:30 pm EST.
Astronomers discovered the asteroid, dubbed 2017 BS32, just a few days ago, according to MailOnline.
The space rock is estimated to be somewhere between 36 to 82 feet, or roughly the size of a double-decker bus.
Fortunately, in spite of its late discovery, asteroid 2017 BS32 will not hit Earth and cause all of us to die in the disaster of all disasters.
Asteroid 2017 BS32 will be just 100,214 miles from the Earth at the time of its closet approach, which is 60 percent closer than the moon, according to Slooh.
This is not the first time an asteroid has come close to our beloved planet this year.
Slooh astronomer Paul Cox said,
Are all of these asteroids a sign that "Doomsday" is on its way?
Probably not (thankfully).
NASA has us covered.
According to NASA's NEO (Near Earth Object) program,
In other words: There are some really nerdy people out there who are watching out for us, and we should all be extremely thankful for their commitment.
Hooray for science!
