Last month itself, an asteroid also made a record for passing through the nearest Earth. Now once again another asteroid is going to pass near the Earth. This time the asteroid will pass less than the distance between the Moon and Earth on September 1. US Space Agency NASA has given this information. This asteroid is named 2011 ES3. It is said that for the next decade, it will pass the nearest of the asteroids passing near the Earth.
According to NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, earlier this asteroid passed closest to the Earth on March 13 in 2011. At that time it passed 4,268,643 kilometres from the Earth. This time the concern is that this asteroid will pass only 45,000 miles from the Earth. According to the report of the news agency ANI, the size of this celestial body is being reported between 22 to 49 meters.
NASA has named this asteroid Asteroid 2001 ES4. The eagerness of people all over the world is about the question of whether this celestial body will hit the Earth. On this, NASA Asteroid Watch tweeted that the Asteroid-2001 ES4 will not hit the Earth. Yes, it is definitely that it will pass very close to the Earth. There is no danger of it hitting the Earth.
NASA Asteroid Watch has said that astronomical scientists estimate that on Tuesday, the first September, this celestial body will pass at least 45 thousand miles (equivalent to 792 thousand football fields). NASA estimates that the speed of this asteroid is about 8.16 kilometres per second. This body has passed very close to the Earth once before. Last time, it was continuously visible from the Earth for four days.
