Massive asteroid will pass Earth on Christmas Eve | Daily Mail Online
A 1.5 mile-wide asteroid is expected to make its closest approach to Earth on Christmas Eve.
Asteroid 2003 SD220, also known as asteroid 163899, will pass our planet from 6.7 million miles (11 million km) away - 28 times farther than the moon.
Despite its huge distance, reports have circulated the asteroid could cause earthquakes and trigger volcanoes on Earth.
But experts have dismissed these claims, saying that there is no scientific evidence to back up these theories.

Fresh off the heels of Spooky the Halloween Asteroid comes news of yet another celestial object coming to pay us a visit during an important calendar event. But have no fear, this space rock won’t be the Grinch that annihilated Christmas.
Asteroid 2003 SD220, also known as asteroid 163899, is scheduled to make its closest approach to Earth on Christmas Eve, a.k.a. December 24, 2015. At more than 28 times the moon’s distance, NASA says it’s nothing to worry about.
