Massive 155m asteroid in Earth's orbit this weekend as NASA track 'close approach'

NASA are keeping track of a large asteroid that is set to make a 'close approach' to Earth this weekend.The fast-moving space object, named 2022 JE1, has an estimated diameter of between 50 metres (164ft) and 155 metres (500ft).According to NASA's Earth Close Approaches list, the asteroid is expected to come within relatively close proximity to Earth's orbit on Sunday (June 3), although it is not classed as hazardous or expected to crash directly into the planet.READ MORE: NASA baffled after 'mystery spacecraft' smashes into the Moon leaving odd craterUnlikely many asteroids, which are monitored over the course of many years, 2022 JE1 was only detected on May 7 this year.At its closest on Sunday, it is expected to pass 3.29million kilometres (2.04million miles) past our home planet, which is about nine times the distance between Earth and the moon.It has still been labelled by NASA as "potentially hazardous" because it will come within 4.65 million miles of our home planet.Its next expected approach will happen in five years time on July 14, 2027. The famous Halley's comet, by comparison, comes every 75 years.A different asteroid much further from earth is believed to be carrying $10,000 quadrillion (£8,250 quadrillion) worth of minerals that could completely transform the future of our planet.To read more out-of-this-world astronomical and alien news, why not subscribe to the Daily Star's Spaced Out newsletter.The 16 Psyche is an M-type asteroid, which means it appears to contain higher concentrations of metal phases, in this case, iron, nickel and gold.

Some suggest the hotel was developed by Indonesian President Suharto’s son Tommy and was shut down following him being jailed in 2002, reports this theory is entirely unconfirmed.And, locals have whispered about constructions workers passing away during the resorts building – another unconfirmed rumour.They believe the ghosts of those who died haunt the palace.And, others say that the palace was doomed after the businessman behind the venture was cursed.A pair of Australian tourists recently shared snaps inside the once luxurious palace that is now overgrown and open to the elements.They claim to have seen a “figure” and wrote on Facebook: “My mum and I were standing at the top of the stairs and I called out to see if I would get a response.“We both heard a disembodied voice and the air went very cold.”She also posted an image of a figure that seemed to reach out to those exploring the property.They added: “It’s definitely haunted and beautiful inside, and there’s lots of stains.

Mum's genius hack turns economy seats into a giant bed on long haul flights
The Real Mumma, flew from Melbourne, in Australia, to Los Angeles, in the US, on a mammoth trip that takes longer than 14 hours.But, instead of stressing out and keeping the kids from crying, Adele was able to ensure her children got plenty of sleep on the journey.And, it only cost her £104 rather than the hundreds extra a business class flight would cost.Adele managed to snag her family a Sky Couch as part of an upgrade available on Air New Zealand, which transforms a row of seats into a full flat bed that’s perfect for napping.If you’re lucky you’ll even be able to fit two of you on the bed side by side.Anyone looking to make a long journey from New Zealand to the UK should check if their flight has the Economy Sky Couch available.You can book the Sky Couch alone – you don’t have to share with a stranger – or a Sky Couch with an additional seat.Recommendations on the Air New Zealand site explain what’s suitable for every size of family to book here.Adele wrote about the clever option on Facebook and said: "If there is two of you travelling, you can purchase a third seat at half price and you will get the entire row to yourself."The leg rests all rise to meet the chair in front and create a completely flat, large play or sleep area. Paul and Harvey had a bed and so did Chloe and I."It’s the next best thing to business (but way cheaper) and perfect for long haul flights with young families.
