Astronomers have discovered an asteroid that could be up to 2 000 m wide and and is thought to be on a collision course with the Earth.
For the first time this asteroid has been given a positive threat rating on 'The Palermo technical scale' and sits at 0.06.
However more observations are expected to show the asteroid will actually miss the earth.
Astronomers have however said that the asteroid could hit the earth on 2019-02-01 if it is shown to have a collision course.
