Asteroid to pass by Earth on Sunday. Wave hello to ‘the Beast!’

An asteroid the length of a New York city block will zip past Earth on Sunday, June 8, coming within 770,000 miles of our planet at its closest approach.

Nicknamed “the Beast,” it has been designated a “potentially hazardous asteroid” because of its size (between 800 and 1,300 feet) and because of how close it will get to Earth.
