The separation of one of these is not as much as that of Earth and Moon while the size of one is more than the enormous pyramid of Egypt.
Whereas the United States area company assured its Twitter followers over the weekend that there's most likely nothing to fret about, for perspective the Moon is 384,400 km away, so it will likely be fairly a detailed name certainly - astronomically talking - particularly given the danger posed by an object which is estimated to be travelling at a pace of 8.16 km per second. Two such asteroids - 2020 QG5 and 2011 ES4, will arrive on Tuesday.
NASA said there are three potential impacts. The estimated distance of the asteroid 2011 ES4 is 1.2 lakh km. Its separation will be not as much as Earth and Moon. Asteroid 2011 ES4 will be the closest to Earth for another decade as asteroid 2008 DB will approach earth in a similar trajectory in 2032.More news: NVIDIA teaser hints at potential August 31 Ampere GPU launch
But while the asteroid will make its close approach tonight, the distance at which it will buzz Earth from is uncertain, experts say. At that time it passed 4,268,643 kilometers from the Earth.
The so-called "Near-Earth Object", classified as such by the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), was first discovered by astronomers in 2010, and is set to cross Earth's orbit on Sunday.
"The giant outer planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune) formed from an agglomeration of billions of comets and the leftover bits and pieces from this formation process are the comets we see today". But the chances of it hitting the earth are slim. The last time it made a close approach, it was visible from our planet for four days.More news: The Ellen DeGeneres Show Producer Andy Lassner Speaks Out About "Rough" Time
