Asteroid “The Size Of London’s Big Ben” Will Whiz Past Earth Minutes After Tonight’s Presidential Debate

In what is perhaps yet another signal of end times upon us, an asteroid that is the “size of London’s Big Ben clock tower” is going to fly past the Earth tonight, moments after the end of the next Presidential debate. 

It’ll pass the Earth safely on Thursday at 10:49PM EST, Fox News reports

The asteroid is called 2020 TGI and is traveling at an estimated 30,700 miles per hour. It’s going to miss the Earth by about 7 million miles. 

It had recently come close to the Earth on April 20, 2013 and won’t make its way back around again until Feburary 6, 2024. It is estimated that the asteroid is between 154 and 360 feet wide. “Potentially hazardous” near Earth objects are defined as those who come within 0.05 astronomical and measure over 460 feet in diameter.

There’s currently more than 18,000 of these near Earth objects. 

One asteroid “the size of a pickup truck” passed the Earth by just 2,000 miles in August. It was the closest call ever recorded and NASA didn’t notice the object until after it had passed the Earth. In 2018, the agency put together a plan for the Earth to better prepare itself against near Earth objects. 

NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine said in 2019 that an asteroid strike was the possibly the planet’s biggest threat. The topic of asteroids and other existential threats, including volcanos, pandemics and earthquakes, was also discussed last week on a podcast with University of South Florida professor Dr. Marc J. Defant. 

But with the way the year has been going, we’re sure there’s plenty of people out there with their fingers crossed that the asteroid will change paths and finally put an end to it all…
