An asteroid like a human skull approaching the Earth will arrive in mid-November 2018.

It is the 2015 TB145 asteroid that was relatively well-known to scientists not only for its appearance but also because it was very close to our planet in 2015.

According to NASA and the Andalusian Institute of Astrophysics in Spain, it traverses the Earth every 3.04 years. Some astronomers believe it is a dead comet.

As Time magazine reports, in 2018 the asteroid will pass from Earth far enough to a distance equivalent to 105 times the distance between Earth and Moon.
