The concern is not just around its giant size, but several other factors! (Pixabay)

The upcoming asteroid is travelling at a fiery speed of 50498 kmph and will come as close as 2.45 million miles to Earth. (Freepik)

All of these factors made NASA’s scientists call it a potentially hazardous asteroid! (Pixabay)

All the space rocks that approach within 4.6 million miles of Earth and have a size larger than about 150 meters are dubbed as potentially hazardous objects. (Pixabay)

According to TheSky.org, the asteroid 2023 CM will buzz the Earth on March 14 at 20:48. (NASA)

The asteroid 2023 CM was detected on February 12, 2023. This near-Earth object belongs to the Apollo group.(Pixabay)

However, you should not worry! Through the JPL and Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) telescope, NASA collects data for over 20000 asteroids. (Pixabay)

Not just that, NASA successfully diverted an asteroid from its path by crashing a spacecraft into- this was the DART mission, which has been proven a successful method to protect Earth in the future. (Freepik)
