An Apollo class asteroid named 2018 VP1 is one of just 29 objects listed by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory Center for Near-Earth Object Studies (CNEOS) as having a 1 in 240 chance of colliding with Earth on November 2.

CNEOS data shows the lingering 6.5-foot diameter boulder will pose a threat to the planet three times between now and 2015 and has listed the object’s next close approach in early November.

“Sentry is a highly automated collision monitoring system that continually scans the most current asteroid catalog for possibilities of future impact with Earth over the next 100 years,” NASA’s official website states. “Whenever a potential impact is detected it will be analyzed and the results immediately published here, except in unusual cases where we seek independent confirmation. It is normal that, as additional observations become available, objects will disappear from this table whenever there are no longer any potential impact detections.”

Scientists have warned that an oceanic impact from a meteor could potentially cause a 400-foot tall tidal wave that would have the potential of engulfing U.S. coastlines altogether. The possibility of a water strike is more probable based on the simple fact that 70% of the planet is covered by oceans.

Moreover, the data coincides with the Deagel report which forecasts a two-thirds reduction of the U.S. population by the year 2024.
