Today is Wednesday, Aug. 29, 2018. Here’s what you need to know:

Good morning,

Our planet survived an asteroid whizzing past its atmosphere at about 20,000 mph early this morning. 

NASA classified the asteroid as “potentially hazardous” as it was projected to come within three million miles of the Earth, according to Esquire. This news calls for a sign of relief considering the space rock was projected to be larger in diameter than the height of the Great Pyramid of Giza. That could have definitely left a mark.
