A WHOPPING five asteroids are set to hurtle past Earth this weekend – with one bigger than London’s iconic St Paul’s Cathedral.

NASA said the space rocks will start to fly past at 10.29am on Sunday before the last one skims us at 9.15pm.

The agency anticipates the first to be the 2013 US3, the biggest of the asteroids measuring up to 360metres.

At that length it is over three times as tall as St Paul’s Cathedral, which measures 111m from bottom to top.

It is also flying past at a startling speed of 17,179mph.

Later the 2018 GO4 will head towards our planet at 12.34pm measuring up to 68m.

Then in the evening, monster rock 2018 GY1 is set for an approach at 6.20pm.

NASA measure this one at up to 240m, which is taller than San Francisco’s iconic Golden Gate Bridge at 227m from above water to the top of the towers.

And later, the rocks 2018 FV4 at 7.13pm and the 2002 JR100 at 9.15pm will hurtle by.
