Burj Khalifa size asteroid, is wandering through space and will pass through the earth, this month, according to NASA.

The asteroid is called the 2000 QW7, which is huge, with a diameter ranging between 951 and 2132 feet (290 and 650 meters), and its length is close to the Burj Khalifa, which is 2716 feet (828 meters) high.

The Center for Near-Earth Object Studies (CNEOS), part of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, predicted that the asteroid would pass our planet on September 14.

The Burj Khalifa size asteroid will travel at an astounding speed of 14,361 miles per hour (23,100 km / h), and although it is an object close to Earth, it will still be far enough away to prevent it from colliding.

The asteroid will pass within 0.03564 of the Earth’s astronomical units, which is equivalent to about 3.3 million miles (5.3 million km).

Asteroids and other space objects are near-Earth objects, if they pass within 1.3 astronomical units of our planet, and the astronomical unit is the distance from Earth to the Sun, or 92.9 million miles, and the last time 2000 QW7 approached our planet was on September 1. 2000, the next time it is expected to pass by October 19, 2038.
