3 Asteroids To Zip Past Earth This Weekend — NASA Asteroid Tracker

3 Asteroids To Zip Past Earth This Weekend — NASA Asteroid Tracker”

"Asteroids this size are far smaller than what we're tasked to track".

The asteroid, 2019 MO, was burnt in the Caribbean atmosphere on 29 June.

NASA has detected an asteroid nearly as big as the Empire State Building that's on a near-collision course with Earth.

"Near-Earth objects are comets and asteroids that have been nudged by the gravitational attraction of nearby planets into orbits that allow them to enter Earth's neighborhood", CNEOS stated.

2019 GT3 is nearly as big as a skyscraper, with a diameter of 1,247 feet and will hurtle past Earth at 30,500 miles per hour.

As indicated in CNEOS' database, 2019 RH is now traveling at a speed of nearly 38,000 miles per hour.

A small asteroid reached Earth and NASA absolutely nothing about it knew. Computer-simulated awful footage produced by the Discovery Channel for the Miracle Planet documentary series in 2008 shows the effect a huge asteroid would have if it struck the Earth.

2019 RH is expected to make its approach on Earth on September 10 at 4:41 am EDT.

CNEOS classified 2019 RH as an Apollo asteroid.

Since 2019 GT3 oftentimes intersects and approaches Earth at dangerously close distances, it has been labeled by CNEOS as a potentially hazardous asteroid. During this time, the asteroid will be about 0.01787 astronomical units or roughly 1.7 million miles from the planet's center.

Asteroids, warming at the Earth's orbit, begin to deviate from the Sun and change their trajectory to the Ground.

The reports of asteroids bigger than the Pyramid of Giza and passing by awfully close to Earth has gotten some scientists thinking that it's only a matter of time before an asteroid will collide with the planet's surface. Aside from Earth, the asteroid is also known to approach other planets such as Mars and Venus.

NASA said: "As they orbit the Sun, Near-Earth Objects can occasionally approach close to Earth". After this week's approach, the asteroid is not expected to appear in Earth's vicinity until June 20, 2030.

The photograph of the situation told: Earth is headed directly by a huge asteroid from space, as big as it had affected 4 billion years earlier.
