    “Fox News scares readers with warning of asteroid hurtling towards Earth — but there’s a 1 in 7,000 chance it will hit” (6/6/19) https://www.rawstory.com/2019/06/fox-news-scares-readers-with-warning-of-asteroid-hurtling-towards-earth-but-theres-a-1-in-7000-chance-it-will-hit/ The asteroid is known as 2006 QV89 and will fly by the Earth in September. It will pass by at a distance of more than 4.2 million miles. To put that in context, Mars is 33.9 million miles from Earth. Fox explained it “could potentially hit the planet on Sept. 9, 2019,” citing the European Space Agency. [See http://neo.ssa.esa.int/risk-page ]
