If any of you are interested in this sort of thing..........

A massive asteroid (2000 EM26) will be passing earth on the 17th of February, and while it’s still 0.018 AU away from the earth it is classed as a ‘potentially hazardous’ object. No need to be worried though, 1 Astronomical Unit (AU) is the distance between the Earth and the Sun, so 0.018 may sound close, but it’s really more than 2.6 million kilometres, meaning this asteroid is ‘close’ in astronomical terms, but flipping miles away in human terms.
