NASA captures images of big asteroid set to fly by Earth

( CNN) A big asteroid is whizzing by Earth this week, and NASA has the images to prove it.

The space rock, known by the very dull name of 2014 JO25, are planned to safely fly by Earth on Wednesday night, according to NASA.

Radar images obtained by NASA a day earlier depict a peanut-shaped asteroid that rotates about once every five hours.
