Astronomers were shocked when they discovered a bus-sized asteroid would be skimming by the earth today, July 7, 2022.
The asteroid that goes by the name of 2022 NF is reportedly 12 meters long and 5.4 meters wide. It will only be 54,844 miles (ca. 88,263 km) out, or a quarter of the distance of the moon, when it passes by at 24,606 miles per hour (ca. 39,599 km/h).
Astronomers only became aware of its presence three days ago but added that because of its trajectory, there is very little chance it will hit the earth.
But one will hit
In his vision of the end-times, the Apostle John saw a mountain-sized asteroid smashing into one of the earth’s oceans, causing massive tsunamis and destruction:
8 The second angel sounded, and something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea; and a third of the sea became blood, 9 and a third of the creatures which were in the sea and had life, died; and a third of the ships were destroyed. (Revelation 8:8-9 NASV)
