    Giant pyramid-shaped asteroid to shoot past earth in hours

    A 427-foot pyramid-shaped asteroid is due to fly by Earth on Sunday, scientists say.

    According to the Centre for Near-Earth Object Studies at Nasa’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, the object, called VH5 2019, will harmlessly fly past around 4.27 million miles from our planet at a speed of 6.1 miles per second.

    At 187ft by 426.5ft, the asteroid is “pyramid-shaped" and almost as large as the Great Pyramid of Giza.

    The asteroid is one of five due to fly past Earth over the weekend, all at safe distances.
