Dark, massive asteroid to fly by Earth on 31-May-2013

It's 1.7 miles long.

Its surface is covered in a sticky black substance similar to the gunk at the bottom of a barbecue.

If it impacted Earth it would probably result in global extinction.

Good thing it is just making a flyby.

Asteroid 1998 QE2 will make its closest pass to Earth on May 31 at 1:59 p.m. PDT.
