However, an asteroid discovered earlier this month - ZJ99C60, spotted on May 8 - turned out to be a blast from the past as astronomers realized it was actually 2010 WC9 coming back after nearly eight years.
When it was first discovered in 2010, astronomers could not predict when it might return because the data on the orbit was not clear. Astronomers think that in spite of its dimension as well as range to Earth, 2010 WC9 will securely zoom past the planet. However, it is rapidly brightening and is expected to get even brighter than eleventh magnitude when it is at the closest distance to the Earth.
The asteroid that would be moving at an estimated distance of about 203,453 kilometers (126,419 miles) could be reportedly witnessed even by the help of a small telescope.

Thanks to Northolt Branch Observatories, you can actually watch it while flying. "Check out the link below to learn more about this asteroid, why it's special, and how to see it for yourself", on their Facebook page Say. We will be at us on Monday.
The space rock - dubbed Asteroid 2010 WC9 - will pass by the planet at around half the moon's distance on Tuesday. Estimates of its size range from 197 to 427 feet (60-130 meters), making the May 15 pass one of the closest approaches ever observed of an asteroid of this size.
