A Massive Asteroid To Hit Earth on Christmas Eve

Looks like Christmas Eve will start with a bang if it's really true that a massive asteroid that's flying by Earth on this year's Christmas Eve. This discovery has scientists on edge but NASA is downplaying any threats to human life and property that this asteroid may bring. Several conspiracy theorists and several experts claims that space rock 2003 SD220 is larger than believed.  Therefore, the possibility to cause deadly earthquakes and eruptions from dormant volcanoes is on the rise. NASA officials measures the Christmas Eve asteroid at about 1.5 miles wide and is moving at 5 miles per second.

“Little is known about the remaining 10 high-priority targets other than the absolute magnitudes and their heliocentric orbits that make six of them potentially hazardous to Earth. There is no scientific basis — not one shred of evidence — that an asteroid or any other celestial object will impact Earth on those dates. If there were any object large enough to do that type of destruction in September, we would have seen something of it by now." - Paul Chodas, manager of NASA’s Near-Earth Object Office 

Extraterrestrial collusion theorists are not convinced about the recent announcement that downplays the potential threats of its impact. There are also some beliefs that the asteroid is, at least, four times the size of Jupiter, the largest planet in our Solar System. It might fly by the planet within the year’s end and destroy all life forms due to its inescapable gravitational pull.
