To name just a few, citizens have faced a global pandemic (COVID-19), skyrocketing unemployment rates, "murder hornets," an Ebola outbreak, and now a giant asteroid is heading towards earth. 

Really, 2020, really?

While many of us thought 2020 was going to be "our year" and a new decade would bring a brighter future, we've been met instead with a deadly virus and other issues. 

Now, NASA is tracking a massive asteroid that is set to hit close to Earth, which is reportedly traveling at a speed of 11,200 mph.

However, it has been reported that people should not be too alarmed. According to reports, even at its closest point to Earth, the asteroid is still 13 times the average distance between the moon and Earth.
