A huge asteroid is going to make a close approach to earth within the next week, according to NASA.

The giant rock, which is bigger than the Empire State Building, will come as close as 5.6 million kilometers away from Earth.

The asteroid is known as 388945 (2008 TZ3) and is expected to make its closest approach on Sunday, according to the new york post.

The same asteroid passed the earth back in May 2020, and came much closer to the Earth — just 2.7 million kilometers away.

About every two years it comes by, although this will be the closest it will be until May 2163, according to the report.
