The huge asteroid, named WO107 2000, is close to Earth’s orbit by 10 am GMT on Sunday, November 29, 2020.

The asteroid, with a diameter of about 0.51 kilometers, would orbit for a long time, despite its huge size, but it would travel at a tremendous speed of 25.07 kilometers per second, and would not be visible to most of the Earth’s population, because it was designated for what NASA considers “close fly” at 0.02876 astronomical units (AU). From the ground – or 2,673,409 miles.

NASA defines a NEO as any asteroid or comet approaching 1.3 astronomical units from Earth.
