A colossal asteroid, designated 7335 (1989 JA), is making its way towards Earth, and it’s a remarkable sight to behold, Your Content has learned.

With a diameter of 1.1 miles, this space rock holds the title for the largest celestial body to approach our planet in 2022.

To put things into perspective, the Burj Khalifa, the tallest man-made structure globally, stands just over half a mile tall at 2,722 feet since its construction in 2004.

Despite its massive size and NASA’s classification of it as “potentially hazardous,” there’s no need to worry.
