3 Asteroids To Zip Past Earth This Weekend — NASA Asteroid Tracker

Davide Farnocchia, a scientist at NASA's Center for Near-Earth Object (NEO) Studies, stated: Asteroids of this measurement are far smaller than what they are tasked to trace.

2019 RG2 is an Apollo-type Near-Earth Object (NEO) that flies around the inner ring of the solar system on a trajectory, similar to Asteroid 1862 Apollo. CNEOS predicted that the asteroid will enter Earth's neighborhood on September 6 at 12:21 am EDT. This means the asteroid has been pulled into a trajectory path that passes near the planet.

About a days relieve, Lembit Opik, the Chairman of Parliament for the place nation Asgardia had published that earth will certainly face a doomsday direct of affairs at some point soon or the more than just a few due to an asteroid hit. According to the agency's database, this asteroid is now traveling at a speed of 30,500 miles per hour. "They are so small that can't survive passing through our atmosphere and doesn't cause damage to the surface of the Earth". According to CNEOS, this asteroid was first observed on August 9. During this time, the asteroid will be about 0.01787 astronomical units or roughly 1.7 million miles from the planet's center.

The object was an asteroid, known as 2019 MO three meters in diameter.

Asteroid 2019 QZ3 flew by at 6:49 a.m. ET; asteroid 2019 RG2 follows at around 3:13 p.m. ET, and the third, asteroid 2019 QY4, flashes past at 9:10 p.m. ET, the International Business Times reported. Occasionally, the asteroid's orbit intersects with that of Earth as the planet travels around the massive star.

In other words, at its closest, the asteroid will safely miss us from a distance of 3.3 million miles (5.3 million km). After this week's approach, the asteroid is not expected to appear in Earth's vicinity until June 20, 2030. A single astronomical unit is the same distance as between the Earth to the Sun, which is about 149.6 million kilometres.

Over 17,000 near-Earth asteroids remain undetected in our solar neighborhood. Opik moreover added that the potentialities of earth being hit by a doomsday asteroid is 100 percent.
