Now the celestial body is flying to Earth at a speed of more than 25 thousand miles per hour, said the American astrophysicist.

American astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson said that the day before the US presidential election – November 2 – an asteroid the size of a refrigerator could fall to Earth.

The scientist wrote about this on Sunday, October 18, on his Instagram post.

2018VP1, a refrigerator-sized space-rock, is hurtling towards us at more than 25,000 mi/hr. It may buzz-cut Earth on Nov. 2, the day before the Presidential Election,” the scientist wrote on his Instagram wall.


However, the scientist is sure that the asteroid is not so large as to somehow harm earthlings or disrupt the procedure for electing an American president.

“So if the end of the world comes in 2020, it will not be the fault of the universe,” he added.

According to NASA, the asteroid named 2018VP1 is very small in size and poses no threat to Earth.

Current location and status can be checked on NASA’s website.
