The asteroid which is estimated to be the size of the London Bridge is officially known as Asteroid 2014 QJ33.

According to source, Asteroid 2014 QJ33 on 17th September will fly pass Earth with a speed of 19,371 miles per hour which is 8.66 kilometres a second.

National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has revealed that the asteroid they are tracking in space is predicted to be 48m to 110m 0r 157 to 360 feet wide which is equivalent to the size of the London Bridge.

NASA also revealed that the asteroid will not enter our planet's atmosphere but it will safely pass at a distance of 1,592,819 miles away from our planet.

They therefore urge us not to worry because Asteroid 2014 QJ33 will not crash on earth's surface.
