Asteroid ‘taller than the Empire State Building’ is flying close to Earth at 11,200 mph

U.S. space agency NASA keeps track of asteroids in space, including ones that are within 7.5 million kilometres of Earth.

When first spotted by The Sky Live, the asteroid was approximately 552 111 kilometres from Earth but posed no threat to our beloved planet.

With an estimated diameter between 820 feet and 1,870 feet, the asteroid is "large as compared to most asteroids but not almost the largest in size", Bieryla said.

There are 20,000 space rocks in Earth's galactic area and they do at times sway, recognizing for 2013, when one pounded into Russian Federation, harming 1,600 people. This asteroid measures about 174 feet wide and is moving at speeds of nearly 35,000 miles per hour.

RECOVERY trial to stop enrolling patients to 'ineffective' hydroxychloroquine arm
The study was the reason the World Health Organization (WHO) last week halted the hydroxychloroquine arm of the Solidarity Trial. The US president, Donald Trump was among those who backed the drug before any high-quality trial evidence had been published.


The third asteroid that will be flying by the Earth is the asteroid 2010 NY65, and astronomers have studied this asteroid thoroughly because of its proximal orbit to the Earth.

NASA is tracking a giant asteroid which may be taller than the Empire State Building in the U.S., and it will be flying near the Earth on June 6 (Saturday). These objects are called near-Earth objects (NEOs), and they zoom past us on a daily basis. It will be the first of three massive asteroids that will be breaching the Minimum Orbit Intersection Distance, which is 0.05 astronomical units. According to NASA, at 12 noon EDT (European time), ie 6:17 pm Indian time, the asteroid will pass closest to Earth. As reported by The Sky Live, the asteroid is now in the constellation of Lyra.

The last asteroid that will approach Earth on Saturday has been identified as 2020 LA.

On its website, NASA posted an Asteroid Watch Widget to track the asteroids and comets that would make relatively close approaches to our planet.
