The name of the astroid is 481394 2006 SF6 and is set for its closest approach to Earth on November 21st. The celestial slice of 650 meters is classified as an Apollo Asteroid, the most dangerous class of an asteroid that has an orbit crossing Earth. It is also likely to be squeezed much closer to Jarkowski's effect.
The Jarkowski effect is where the soft power of sunlight can direct asteroids into orbits crossing Earth and drastically alter the pattern of its paths through the solar system.
Asteroids greater than approximately 35 meters in height can pose a threat to a city or city, so 481394 2006 SF6, with a diameter of 650 meters, can pose a serious threat to large populations of Earth.
The massive space rock is not yet rated on the Turin Impact Risk Scale.
The Torino Scale, adopted by the UIA in 1
The system has an overall scale ranging from 0 to 10 with associated color coding.
The balance shall take into account the likelihood and consequences of a potential impact.
Ten on a scale means a collision is certain, capable of causing a global climate catastrophe that can threaten fu civilization as we know it, whether it affects the land or ocean.
Such events occur on average once every 100,000 years or less.

NEOs are all comets and asteroids whose orbits approach the Earth's path around the Sun.
NASA says, "NEOs include any asteroid, meteor or comet orbiting the Sun within 18,600,000 miles, 30 million miles, of Earth's orbit. “
Of the 829 361 known asteroids and 3592 known comets in the system, more than 20,000 cosmic rocks are classified as NEO.
Although this cosmic rock makes a close approach to Earth, it is very unlikely. that it could endanger our home world.
The distances of asteroids to Earth are measured in astronomical units.
An astronomical unit measures the distance between Earth and the Sun, or about 93 million miles (149.6 million km).
