NASA considered the asteroid 2009 JF1 a big threat – it is considered the fifth most dangerous in terms of its size, distance from the Earth and the speed of approach to it. Experts managed to establish the exact date and time of a possible collision.
This is expected to happen on May 6, 2022 at 08:34 AM Spanish Peninsular Time (06:34 GMT). The probability of this event does not exceed 0.026%.
The article says that the asteroid 2009 JF1 does not differ in grandiose dimensions, but it moves at a very high speed – 23.92 kilometers per second, which is almost twice as fast as that of the most dangerous asteroid in existence, which is expected to fall to Earth in 2880.
