Large asteroid to pass near Earth on Sunday

(ORDO NEWS) — On Sunday, July 17, an asteroid will fly by the Earth. NASA provided data that the diameter of this space object reaches 88 meters.

The asteroid is so large that it is quite realistic to compare it with a large building. It is worth paying attention to the fact that the space body will fly from our planet at a distance of 6.1 million kilometers.

This suggests that the object poses absolutely no threat to the Earth and its inhabitants.

An interesting point is that on July 16 another asteroid will approach our planet. On July 14, two cosmic bodies flew past the Earth at once, which were named 2022 NY and 2022 NC.

They had a diameter of 25 and 30 meters. They swept at a distance of 2.7 and 2.9 million kilometers.

On July 15, an asteroid approached our planet, which experts called 2022 NJ. Its diameter was only 23 meters and it flew at a distance of about 1.3 million kilometers.

A 40-meter stone flew past the Earth on July 16 at a distance of no more than 3.5 million kilometers.

To date, experts are closely watching a huge number of space objects that are at a short distance from the Earth.

Very rarely, these asteroids can be potentially dangerous. This will happen only if the cosmic body suddenly changes its trajectory.
