A massive, out-of-control rocket has flown over New York before crashing into the sea.

The rocket narrowly missed both Los Angeles and New York.

The Long March CZ-5B was launched from China and was supposed to burn up on re-entry after its successful launch on May 5.

However, it instead went into an unstable low orbit. This caused the rocket to orbit the earth without an control from the ground.

At 21 tonnes, it is now the biggest object to make an uncontrolled entry in almost 30 years.

Experts say it would have been big enough to destroy a house.
