Asteroid news: NASA confirms space rock as big as St Paul's will pass Earth tomorrow

And it is a good thing the rock will safely miss our planet as it is potentially big enough to whack a considerable punch upon impact.

According to NASA, TG1 measures somewhere in the range 154ft to 360ft (47m to 110m) across.

At the upper end of the estimate, TG1 is comparable in height to St Paul’s Cathedral in London and the Statue of Liberty in New York.

And at the lower end of NASA’s estimate, TG1 is comparable in height to Nelson’s Column or The Arc de Triomphe in Paris.
