J025: Asteroid will be largest since 2004 to pass close to Earth

The asteroid will come within 1.1 million miles of Earth, only around five times the distance between our planet and the Moon.

Stargazers will be looking to the skies on Wednesday as an asteroid up to a mile wide will pass Earth 1.1 million miles away.

The asteroid, known as J025, will be the largest to come this close to our planet for the past 13 years.

It will be just five times as far away from Earth as the Moon is - a close pass in cosmic terms.

But we can all breath easy, as NASA says there is no chance it will hit Earth.

The object, discovered in 2014, will not be visible to the naked eye but it will be bright enough to be seen through a home telescope for one or two nights from Wednesday.
