NEAR MISS: An asteroid is hurtling towards Earth tonight after a string of near misses
The newly-discovered space rock - named Asteroid 2017 TD6 - is expected to zoom past our planet at around 7.53pm.

It will be travelling at a distance of 191,000km away from civilisation.

According to NASA the chunk of rock is a whopping 22m wide.

Last week another asteroid made a close shave with Earth, as it soared past at a distance of just 27,000 miles above the surface.

And experts have warned a second bus-sized asteroid will zoom past our planet again today at half the distance between the Earth and the moon.

But thankfully, experts predict there is no threat of it hitting out planet.

The asteroid was discovered by the Pan-STARRS survey in Hawaii last Wednesday.

After today's near-miss, 2017 TD6 will then pass by the moon tomorrow at 6.06am.

Its next pass with Earth is predicted to be on May 29 2018.

While 2017 TD6 is expected to miss our planet, if it did hit Earth, experts believe it would be worst than the impact of the 59ft asteroid that hit the city of Chelyabinsk in Russia in 2013.

That particular blast injured around 1,500 people, and damaged over 7,000 buildings.

The passing comes just a week after asteroid 2012 TC4 flew by at just one-eighth of the distance between Earth and the moon.

During its journey, the asteroid narrowly missed communications satellites orbiting 22,236 miles above Earth.

IMPACT: If the asteroid hit the Earth it would have a devastating impact
But in one of its next passes with Earth, experts suggest that 2012 TC4 may not miss.

The near-misses coincide with end of the world fears.

Doomsayers believe a huge alien world called Nibiru or Planet X is hurtling through space towards us - and will hit tomorrow.

The planet will cause devastation on Earth with a direct hit or catastrophic near miss, believers warn.
