Massive asteroid big enough to 'destroy a city' skimmed by yesterday at just half the distance between Earth and the moon - and scientists only noticed it HOURS before

An asteroid traveling at 66,174 miles an hour came close to Earth yesterday just hours after it was noticed.

The asteroid is named 2018 GE3, and it was first observed at Arizona's Catalina Sky Survey on Saturday night.

Soon after it was noticed, it skimmed past Earth, getting within 119,500 miles of our planet.
