A massive #asteroid will pass near #Earth on #Thursday, according to The Guardian.
The 2012 TC4, measuring at 15 to 30 meters, will miss the blue planet by 42,000kms.
The upcoming asteroid will fly over the Pacific Ocean at 1:42 AM ET.

A small asteroid is scheduled to pass by Earth safely at a distance of around 50,000 km above our globe's surface on Thursday.
In regards to this, the fly-by will allow astronomers to test an worldwide asteroid warning network made up of observatories and scientists to help develop plans for what to do in the face of a real threat.
It is certainly an event that will be closely watched.

It followed the collision of the USS Fitzgerald and a container ship in waters off Japan in June, which killed seven sailors. A guided-missile cruiser, Antietam had caused damage to its propellers while anchoring in Tokyo Bay in January.
In other words, if there's a real, Armageddon-style asteroid threatening Earth, expert bodies around the world will be able to detect it and hopefully be able to come up with a better plan than sending a bunch of oil drillers up in space to divert it away from sending us into oblivion.
Experts have said the asteroid, called 2012 TC4, is "no danger", not even to satellites above us. It is also within the range that some of our satellites orbit and could pose a threat to those spacecraft.
Pretty close means the asteroid will pass around 26,000 miles from Earth, but that's not very far away in space terms.. For example, in 2013, a meteoroid, similar to the size of TC4, exploded in the atmosphere over Chelyabinsk in Russian Federation and the resulting shockwave blew out the windows of almost 5,000 buildings and injured more than 1,200 people. This asteroid was discovered by the Panoramic Survey Telescope and Rapid Response System (Pan-STARRS) in Hawaii in 2012. Since then, observers around the world have been tracking the object as it approaches Earth and reporting their observations to the Minor Planet Center. "There are tens of thousands of objects that are known or tracked and nothing now poses any direct risk, but organizations like NASA and other space agencies around the world are working on plans for what to do if something is coming our way, so we have a better chance than the dinosaurs", said Glenn.
