Asteroids, which are monster rocks in space, travel around the Sun, but they can alter their paths due to a gravitational disturbance or some other force. One of these scary rocks is the Asteroid 2022 UF11, which measures just 25 feet in size, and is expected to come as close as 0.627 million miles. Which is just a bit too close for comfort. (Pixabay)
