Posted by Iva Radman – email

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Around 6am Wednesday morning one of two small asteroids zipped past Earth, but NASA says it's nothing to worry about.

They were discovered just a couple of days ago.

The first asteroid passed within 154,000 miles of Earth shortly before 6 am.

The second is due about 5pm. It is 49,000 miles away.

The double fly-by should be visible through a telescope.
