You needn’t worry about the zombie apocalypse, alien invasions or ominous Mayan prophecies any longer as according to NASA an asteroid is on a collision course with Earth. The Asteroid 2013 TX68 is scheduled to fly by on March 5th, 2016.

When it does pay a visit to our solar system, it’s said that it could fly as close as 11,000 miles away from Earth and while that may not be close enough to actually hit us, it’s still pretty close. However, it’s been said that the asteroid could hit our planet on September 28th 2017.

NASA does say the likelihood of it hitting Earth is pretty slim, putting the odds at ‘no more than 1 in 250 million,’ making it 18 times more likely for someone to win the lottery. The asteroid is estimated at being 100 feet wide.

Interestingly enough, this isn’t the first time that the asteroid has passed Earth. It was actually 1.3 million miles away back in 2014. However, while that may not sound like much, in galaxy speak, that’s basically dropping by to borrow a cup of milk.
