Asteroid 2015 TB145 will make a close approach to Earth on Halloween, but will not pose a threat to the planet, NASA announced Tuesday.

The object, which NASA estimates is roughly three football fields in diameter, will whiz by Earth at a blistering 35 kilometers per second.

The 320-meter in diameter 2015 TB145 asteroid is bigger than the meteoroid that exploded over the skies of Chelyabinsk, Russia in 2013. The 17-20 meter wide asteroid that exploded over the skies of Russia emitted the same energy as 440 kilotons of TNT, according to NASA.
