However, the chances of it making an impact were 0.41 per cent. That is why NASA is monitoring the United States space agency.
NASA also revealed it will be travelling at a staggering speed of 8.2 kilometres per second - or 29,500 kilometres per hour. This speed is additionally higher than high-supersonic speed. Since it crosses the Earth's orbit, it is classed as an Apollo asteroid.
On the first day of the coming autumn, the asteroid will be at a distance of approximately 120 thousand kilometers from our planet. Thusly, they are contemplated.More news: IAEA concerned about N.Korea's nuclear activities
"It's really cool to see a small asteroid come by this close, because we can see the Earth's gravity dramatically bend its trajectory", said CNEOS Director Paul Chodas adding that their calculations show that the rock asteroid even turned by about 45 degrees as it passed by the Earth.
According to NASA, asteroid 2011 ES4 is a NEO (Near Earth Object), giving NASA the flawless opportunity to study the history of the solar system. Its separation will be not as much as Earth and Moon.

WashingtonMany asteroids are about to pass by the earth this week. About 10 asteroids will arrive in the month of October.
On September 1, a 25-meter (three London buses end-to-end) and a 28-meter (one and a half times the length of a bowling lane) asteroid are charted to fly past at a distance of 2.9 million and 121,000 km respectively.
However, there is nothing to worry as NASA has ruled out a possible threat, saying that the space rock will not hit Earth. Be that as it may, notwithstanding this there is no danger of damage. The satellite assembled information until 1969, was authoritatively decommissioned in 1971 and has been zooming quietly around Earth on a highly elliptical two-day orbit from that point forward.More news: Kai Havertz completes his Chelsea medical
