An asteroid the size of a bus flew past the Earth

(ORDO NEWS) — A space rock about the size of a bus (from 5.5 to 12.5 meters, according to astronomers) swept past our planet on the night of July 6-7.

The Virtual Telescope Project captured the flyby of asteroid 2022 NF, which was 90,000 kilometers from Earth at its closest approach, which is pretty close by astronomical standards.
