Well, 2020 didn’t exactly get off to a great start. Every time things start to calm down, something else seems to come up. Riots are raging throughout the US and now this comes along… as if we don’t have enough going on already.

NASA scientists believe an asteroid approximately the size of a football stadium will come its closest to Earth on June 6th. That asteroid, named 2002 NN4, will pass by at an approximate distance of 3.16 million miles from our planet.
This, however, is only one of the five asteroids NASA has been keeping tabs on; two have already passed by the planet on June 3 and June 4. They’re both about the size of an airplane — at right around 100 feet across. The third is set to pass today, which is estimated to be roughly the size of a house; that’s just the smallest of the five.
Currently, NASA doesn’t believe the approaching asteroids will impact the earth, but they are watching them all the same.
With the COVID pandemic still an issue, and rioting spreading across the globe, the idea of an asteroid collision seems to be par for the course at this point. 2020 isn’t even halfway through yet, which begs the question, what’s next?
