‘Potentially dangerous’ asteroid to fly by Earth on Halloween

(ORDO NEWS) — According to the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), on the night of October 31 to November 1, asteroid 2022 RM4 will fly past the Earth.

The diameter of the space object is from 330 to 740 meters, that is, it is slightly smaller than the tallest building in the world – the Burj Khalifa skyscraper (828 meters), which is located in Dubai (UAE).

The asteroid will make its closest approach to Earth on Tuesday (November 1), at which point the distance separating it from our planet will be about 2.3 million kilometers.

This space object is considered “potentially hazardous” because its size exceeds 150 meters, and the maximum distance of its flight from planet Earth will be less than 7.5 million kilometers.
