A known asteroid will safely pass Earth Wednesday closer than the distance from Earth to the moon, NASA announced Tuesday.

This asteroid, 2014 DX110, is estimated to be about 100 feet (30 meters) across. Its closest approach to Earth will be at about 217,000 miles (about 350,000 kilometers) from Earth at about 4 p.m. EST on Wednesday.
