NASA has reported that an asteroid the size of a football field is about to come closer to earth than the moon!
The asteroid known as 2014 DX110 is expected to get as close as 350,000 km from earth.
The asteroid is hurtling towards earth as a speed of 53,000km/h but NASA says it will not collide with earth or cause any damage.
However, scientists say that the asteroid will provide an excellent show for those with a telescope as it draws closer.
