Qatar Calendar House dismissed news and social media rumours that an asteroid will hit earth today.

Qatar Calendar House Astronomer Dr. Basheer Marzouq said that asteroid PZ39 2000 has a diameter of 589 meters and is moving at a speed of 57240 kilometres per hour. He said that NASA said the asteroid will approach Earth on February 15, but the distance will be 15.1 bigger than the one separating earth and the moon, or more than 5.5 million kilometres.
