Looks like the tumultuous year of 2020 could go out with a bang – literally. An asteroid – known as 2018 VP1 – is headed straight to Earth, just a day before the 2020 US presidential elections. The asteroid could hit on November 2, 2020.

It is approximately 6.5ft (.002km) in diameter. If it were to hit the atmosphere, the asteroid is so small that it would only look really bright before breaking up into tiny pieces.
