NASA asteroid alert: Agency tracks a 33,000MPH asteroid approaching Earth tomorrow 1

Aten-type rocks are asteroids barreling around the solar system on a trajectory similar to Asteroid 2062 Aten.

NEOs are all comets and asteroids that approach the Sun within 1.3 astronomical units.

According to the European Space Agency (ESA), NEOs frequently visit Earth’s corner of space – sometimes too close for comfort.

ESA said: “NEOs could potentially hit our planet and, depending on their size, produce considerable damage.

“While the chance of a large object hitting Earth is very small, it would produce a great deal of destruction.
