2 Asteroids Fly By Earth Safely

Rocky visitors passed by Earth within 2 hours of each other, says California based Center for Near Earth Object Studies.

This week two asteroids, one the size of a bus and the other a car, passed by the Earth safely, the Center for Near-Earth Object Studies (CNEOS) announced on Wednesday. According to CNEOS – part of US space agency NASA based in Pasadena, California – the close flybys happened within the space of just two hours on Monday. The first asteroid, a bus-sized space rock called 2020 RF3, flew by the Earth at distance of 94,000 kilometers (58,500 miles) at 0649GMT. Roughly two hours later, the second rock, a car-sized asteroid called 2020 RD4, forged a similar path 106,000 kilometers (65,700 miles) away from the Earth at 0833GMT. Considering the distance between the moon and the Earth is 385,000 kilometers (239,000 miles), the first asteroid was quite close to our home planet. Every year, a large number of asteroids are dispersed into the interior of the solar system. Some of them could enter the Earth's orbit. *Writing by Fahri Aksut -
