The size of the Burj Khalifa … an asteroid approaching Earth – Saudi News

The giant asteroid 2000 WO107, which is expected to be 0.51 km in diameter, or about the height of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, is expected to approach Earth at 10.09 GMT on Sunday, November 29.

Despite its enormous size, the visitor will not walk for long and will travel at an impressive speed of 25.07 kilometers per second. Even most Earthlings would not be visible, as NASA was labeled a “direct fly” at 0.02876 astronomical units (AU) from Earth – or 2673409 miles.

NASA defines NEO as any asteroid or comet approaching 1.3 astronomical units on Earth.
