A space rock the size of the Statue of Liberty will skim past Earth today.

The asteroid 2010 WC9 is up to 427 feet (130 meters) wide and will get within 126,000 miles (203,000km) of Earth – about half the distance to the moon.

The flyby will be the closest the object has whizzes past our planet for the next 300 years and is one of the nearest approaches ever observed of an asteroid of this size.

Scientists insist there is no reason to be alarmed as the space rock is predicted to pass at a safe distance.
