After almost eight years the staff of the American Observatory was again able to fix 2010 WC9. NASA says that this will be the closest approach of this asteroid in nearly 300 years.

He clarified, however, that there is no reason to worry about the nearby passage of the 2010 WC9 asteroid. The 2010 WC9 would reportedly be at the closest distance to our planet at near about "6.05 p.m".

As compared to various other planets, 2010 WC9 is not a big one yet it is likely larger compared to the Chelyabinsk meteor, which was originally approximated to be 65 feet long.

Despite its seemingly large size, the asteroid will not be visible to the naked eye from Earth.
