Watch Asteroid 1998 QE2 Pass Earth Live Through These Webcams and Webcasts
Asteroid 1998 QE2 will come within 3.6 million miles of Earth at 4:59 p.m. EDT Friday(5/31). Don’t be scared though because according to Space.com, this is about 15 times the distance from our planet to the moon. It won’t come close enough to blow us into trillions of pieces.

There’s no chance the 1.7-mile-wide (2.7 km) 1998 QE2 will hit us, researchers say. That’s a good thing, because a strike by such a big space rock would cause catastrophic damage, potentially wiping out our species.”
