A newly discovered “potentially dangerous” asteroid nearly the size of the world’s tallest skyscraper is poised to zip past Earth just in time for Halloween, according to NASA.

the asteroid, named 2022 RM4, has an estimated diameter of between 1,083 and 2,428 feet (330 and 740 meters), just below the height of Dubai’s 2,716-foot (828-m) Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. It will zoom past our planet at about 52,500 mph (84,500 km/h), or about 68 times the speed of sound. according to nasa (opens in a new tab).
