The asteroid 441987 (2010 NY65) has also been studied extensively due to its proximal orbit to Earth, after having been discovered a decade ago.
The asteroid, which is known as 163348 (2002 NN4), will come within 3.2 million miles of the Earth, according to NASA's Planetary Defense Coordination Office. Though they are not necessarily now near the Earth, but they can potentially approach the Earth relatively closely. On that day it will come within 1 million miles of Earth, per Space Reference. This asteroid measures about 174 feet wide and is moving at speeds of nearly 35,000 miles per hour.
Many reports have said the rock is heading towards Earth, implying that it may pose some threat.
In fact, Asteroid 2002 NN4 is the first of four fairly large asteroids to pass by Earth this month.
NASA is now studying Asteroid Bennu, where its OSIRIS-Rex spacecraft arrived in 2018.
2002 NN4, is expected to pass by on Saturday 6 June at a velocity of 11,146km/s.
The last asteroid that will approach Earth on Saturday has been identified as 2020 LA. It will breach the MOID at 0.025 AU (3.76 million kilometres) from Earth. The widget keeps track of any Earth approaches within 4.6 million miles of the planet.
There's no need to worry about this huge rock, although it would create some significant damage if it hits Earth.
One NASA expert has this reassuring message to us Earthlings: "All we have to do is change its speed a little faster or a little slower so that when it crosses Earth's orbit, it crosses either in front of us or behind us". Further, no asteroid larger than 140 metre has a "significant" chance of hitting the Earth for the next 100 years, less than half of the estimated 25,000 NEOs that are 140 metres or larger in size have been found to date.
