NASA has predicted that two space rocks will zip past our planet on Sunday.

The first asteroid, 2016 DY30, is about 15 feet wide and currently moving in the direction of Earth at a speed of over 54,000 kilometres per hour. The second asteroid, 2020 ME3, is 131 feet wide, and moving at a speed of over 16,000 kilometres per hour. 2020 ME3 will fly past Earth at a much farther distance as compared to 2016 DY30.
