Even though the asteroid isn't a big as some out there, it's large enough to create widespread devastation if it impacted on Earth.

Nevertheless, crossing the Earth could b devastating for the asteroid, as per the previous statements by experts.

In news which may exacerbate concerns over our lack of planetary defenses, asteroid 2019 QS was first spotted on August 21.

Although NASA had once feared that the 340-metre wide space rock was on a path of collision with Earth, subsequent calculations allayed those concerns by showing that Apophis was going to pass within just 19,000 miles of our planet's surface.

'We have effectively ruled out the possibility of an Earth impact by Apophis in 2036, ' said Don Yeomans, manager of NASA's Near-Earth Object Program Office at JPL.

Even at the smaller end of the scale, the asteroid is nearly as wide as the wingspan of a Boeing 747 aeroplane. NEOs are objects, likes comets or asteroids that usually orbit between 91 million and 121 million miles from the Sun.

The asteroid, dubbed 2019 OU1, is a so-called Near-Earth Object (NEO) flying on a Close Approach Trajectory.

The asteroid was also discussed at NASA's annual Planetary Defence Conference in April, with scientists and disaster planners simulating an asteroid apocalypse for an emergency response. According to NASA's calculations, its diameter is 2,132 feet.

"'Apophis is a representative of about 2,000 now known Potentially Hazardous Asteroids (PHAs)", said Paul Chodas, director of Nasa's Centre for Near Earth Objects Studies (CNEOS).

It is estimated that at least three potentially unsafe asteroids will pass by Earth before August ends.

Another slightly smaller asteroid, 2006 QV89, is set to pass Earth on September 27 having not been sighted for 13 years before July.

Asteroids and other space materials are considered near-Earth objects if they pass within 1.3 astronomical units of our planet, where one astronomical unit is equal to the distance from Earth to the sun, or 92.9 million miles or 149.6 million kilometres.

The 370m wide space rock was discovered in June 2017.
