Asteroid news: NASA tracking DOUBLE space rock on near-Earth approach – Daily Express

And the space rock may be up to 200ft (60m) in size, which is big enough to cause significant damage, were it to slam into a city – which it is certainly not about to do.

The second space rock is arguably of even more interest, as it is set to make an even closer approach than RH6.

At its closest, asteroid 2020 RQ3 is going to get approximately twice as close as its predecessor – 0.01586 AU (1,474,279 miles).

The asteroid is 147ft (54m) in diameter and hurtling through space at far faster speeds – 25.42km/s (56,862mph).
