A small asteroid will make one of the closest-ever fly-bys of Earth by a celestial object Thursday, but experts at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena said there’s no chance of it striking the planet.

In fact, the asteroid known as 2023 BU is so small — estimated at just 11.5 to 28 feet wide — that it would burn up in the planet’s atmosphere and largely disintegrate if it approached Earth, according to JPL.

The asteroid is expected to fly over the southern tip of South America at 4:27 p.m. Pacific Time on Thursday, passing within 2,200 miles of Earth.
