A NEO is any object that comes within a distance of 30 million miles (48 million km) of the Earth's orbit. By NASA's estimates, most of the NEOs are rather small. However, 7335 (1989 JA), the one hurtling in space at 47,200 miles an hour, is larger than 99 percent of the NEOs the space agency tracks.

However, 7335 (1989 JA), the one hurtling in space at 47,200 miles an hour, is larger than 99 percent of the NEOs the space agency tracks.  A stony asteroid, 7335 was first spotted in 1989 at the Palomar Observatory in San Diego, California. The asteroid belongs to the Apollo class, which means it orbits around the Sun and completes an orbit every 861 days or two years and four months. The field was forced to shut as a result of the plant's closure. Since the Earth has its own orbit to follow, the asteroid and our home planet luckily do not cross paths that often. She is a tortie without the attitude, a snuggler and a gentle playmate for people and pets.

On May 27, the two celestial bodies will be 2.5 million miles (4 million km) away from each other. Register now for FREE unlimited access to Reuters. The next time they cross paths, we will all be 33 years older from now. The date for that fly-by is June 23, 2055, but the asteroid will be about 17 million miles (27 million km) away from the Earth.  Nevertheless, NASA classifies 7335 as a potentially hazardous asteroid, meaning if the giant rock were ever to change its trajectory and hit Earth, it could do enormous damage. both days at 1250-H Newell Ave.
