As 2020 continues its quest to win the “most bananas year ever” award, NASA has announced that a “potentially dangerous” asteroid is about to fly by the planet July 24th.

At over 556-feet long, the asteroid named “2020 ND” will be whizzing by the planet at nearly 30,000 miles per hour this Friday.

NASA says the asteroid’s distance to Earth, at 3 million miles away, makes it “potentially dangerous.”  Don’t panic over the asteroid’s label, though, since this will be the sixth time it’s passed Earth.

Have you ever witnessed an astronomical event like a meteor shower?
