Data from the National Aeronautics Space Administration shows that a 6 and a half foot wide asteroid named 2018 VP1 will make its close approach to Earth just one day before the 3 November election and will have a 0.41% chance of impacting the planet.

However, even with 1 in 242 odds of impacting the space boulder shouldn’t pose much of a risk even if it were to hit due to its small size but it will surely have amateur astronomers on alert.

Experts warn the asteroid may come as close as 300 miles to Earth.
