An asteroid that could be taller than the Eiffel Tower is expected to shoot past Earth next month.

The mammoth space rock has been classified as “potentially hazardous” by NASA, per Newsweek, though it is expected to pass by safely. NASA usually determines whether an asteroid is possibly hazardous by examining its size and distance from our planet.

Known as 2021 KT1, the asteroid will make a “close approach” to Earth on June 1 at about 10:24 am EDT, according to NASA.

The word “close” is a relative concept in cosmic terms. It is estimated that the distance the rock will actually swing past Earth is around 4.5 million miles. Even though this is roughly 19 times the distance between the Earth and the Moon, NASA still considers the pass in its near approaches datasheet, Newsweek reported.
