BUT before you start looking for a bunker - don't worry NASA estimates that the Asteroid will be passing passed us!! It will however get "close" - 3 Million miles! Nasa expects it to pass near our planet on Saturday. 

It does get scary when NASA says - "the celestial planet killer will actually keep a distance of over 3.1 million miles when it passes."

They are calling it "Asteroid 2002 NN4" - and NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) has estimated the Asteroid to be 250-570 meters (820-1,870 feet) in diameter.

There are 20,000 near-Earth asteroids and they do occasionally make an appearance. In 2013, one slammed into Russia, injuring 1,600 people.
