A giant asteroid is approaching Earth

(ORDO NEWS) — An asteroid 153201 (2000 WO107) with dimensions from 370 to 820 meters is approaching the Earth, according to the website of the NASA Center for the Study of Near-Earth Objects.

The asteroid will approach the minimum distance to the Earth on November 29 at 08:00 Moscow time. This distance is 11 times the distance to the Moon. Thus, this time the space “alien” does not pose a threat to our planet, although it belongs to the potentially dangerous, since it crosses its orbit.

It is interesting to others as well. According to the Asterank database, which collects information on 600 thousand asteroids, the cost of minerals for 2000 WO107 is estimated at 17.4 billion dollars. The celestial body contains nickel, iron and cobalt.
