Return of SKULL-SHAPED asteroid raises fears of earthquake and tsunamis





The eerie asteroid that first passed the planet on Halloween 2015 will return next year with some social media users fearful it could destroy a city or cause a tsunami.

One Reddit user said: “I assume it would wipe out any city it happened to hit.

"If it were to hit, there is a 71 per cent chance it will hit water.

"A tsunami would be the biggest concern. "Despite the dire warnings from online stargazers experts are less concerned, they point out that the deathly space rock will pass at a much greater distance when it makes its comeback in November 2018.

TB145, which resembles a skull in some images, passed at a distance of 486,000km away – 1.3 times the distance to the Moon, but on its return visit it will hurtle past at 105 further away than our Moon or may strike New York per reddit users.
