Asteroids regularly make close approaches to Earth, and Nasa creates alerts for each one of these objects. Sometimes several will even pass by in a single day completely unnoticed by humanity. For instance, four ‘All Saints’ asteroids skimmed past Earth on November 1, completely harmlessly.
Now Nasa has revealed that another asteroid is scheduled for an Earth fly-by on November 25.
The asteroid is called 2019 VF1, named because it was first discovered this year.
It measures up to 492 feet (150 metres) across, and will skirt Earth at 4.09am UK time or 11.09pm on Sunday in New York.
The asteroid will be travelling at a nippy 38,498mph (61,956km/h) about 63 times faster than the top speed of a Boeing 747 jet. Fortunately, this gigantic space rock will pass Earth with a very wide berth.
The asteroid is expected to come no closer than 3,172,582 miles (5,105,776km).

The asteroid is expected to come no closer than 5,105,776 kilometres.
To make you feel even better, that distance is about 13 times farther from Earth than the Moon.

I doubt if they did see one coming for us they’d let us know.
I don't see us colonizing Mars this century, and even if we did
I'm not so sure we should be allowed to spread into the cosmos until we accomplish global unity or become a Type 1 civilization.
Unless they already did either colonized it or made some bases on Mars with shadow technology.
What makes you so sure that they would tell the public anything they do in the shadows?
Its almost like as if the Global Elitists are keeping Humans as Prisoners on Earth and making sure that we never achieve that goal. While they make profit out of people's misery and chaos.
