As part of his apocalyptic vision of the end times, the Apostle John saw an asteroid the size of a mountain slamming into the earth causing massive devastation.

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, 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)

Well, an observatory in Chile has just spotted three massive asteroids within what is described as our inner solar system, the Daily Mail reports.

And one of them, 2022 AP7, is one mile or 1.5 km in diameter and actually has the potential to cross the path of the earth’s orbit around the sun.

The asteroids within the inner solar system are very difficult to spot because the sun’s glare makes them almost impossible to spot.

The Daily Mail explains:

A massive asteroid described as a ‘planet killer’ has been spotted lurking in the inner Solar System – and it could one day hit Earth, scientists warn.

Nearly a mile in diameter (1.5km), the asteroid, called 2022 AP7, has an orbit that crosses the orbit of Earth and is described as ‘potentially hazardous’. […]

Finding asteroids in the inner Solar System is difficult, because experts have only two brief 10-minute windows each night to survey this area and must contend with a bright background sky resulting from the sun’s glare.
