    NASA have said a mysterious object hurtling towards Earth 'could be a comet or an asteroid'.

    The space agency recently spotted two massive space objects heading towards our planet.

    While the American space agency has pinpointed one as a comet, the other has left it slightly more baffled, the Daily Mirror reports.

    The comet is set to fly close to Earth this week.

    The object, dubbed "2016 WF9", was detected by NASA's asteroid- and comet-hunting NEOWISE project.
