Just to reinforce panic about the approaching date deliberately to end the world - December 21, shortly before its near Earth asteroid will fly great. Space object will approach our planet right on December 12, reports National Geographic.
Although, according to estimates asteroid does not pose a danger to Earth, astronomers are now ready to monitor its trajectory. The giant rock is called Toutatis 4179 and is one of the largest asteroids flying close to our planet. An interesting feature is that the shape of Toutatis very similar to peanut. Its length is estimated at 4.46 km, and its width - 2.4 km. It is estimated that when it reaches the closest planet to Earth, it will be located at a distance of 6.9 million kilometers. 4179 Toutatis approaches Earth every four years. Was observed in 1996, 2000, 2004 and 2008

According to one hypothesis, the unusual "fastakovidna" form can be explained by the collision of two asteroids - perhaps less subject to crashed and crashed into another, larger object and the end result is Toutatis.
