Asteroids Near Earth Today: 9 Cruisers Coming to Earth Orbit!

Asteroids Near Earth Today: 9 Cruisers Coming to Earth Orbit!

“(2014 RE11)” Comes Closest to Earth! A total of 11 near-Earth asteroids have reached their closest point in their orbit today. Observation of the largest asteroids near Earth on September 5, 2022.

NASA is currently aware of more than 1.1 million asteroids. Thousands of these and usually irregularly shaped rocks are discovered every month. Particular attention is paid to the so-called near-Earth asteroids, which, like most asteroids in the asteroid belt, do not revolve around the Sun, but come close to the Earth’s orbit and therefore can also be dangerous to Earth. In this article, we provide you with an overview of all the near-Earth asteroids that have reached their closest point in their orbit today.
A total of 11 asteroids will reach their nearest station during the day on Monday, September 5, 2022.

Today’s Largest Near-Earth Asteroid

“(2015 ed 7)” Currently 184 to 411 m. is the largest with an estimated diameter of small star near the earth. “(2015 ED7)” will make its closest approach to Earth today at 08:16. The second largest near-Earth asteroid is “(2012 SY20)” And it has an estimated diameter of 80 to 179 meters. “(2014 RE11)” Today ranks third among the largest near-Earth asteroids (77 m – 171 m).

This Asteroid Is Coming Especially Close to Earth Today

Asteroid is the closest object to Earth today “(2014 RE11)”, It reaches our planet at 9:01 am at a distance of 23.1 million km.
The asteroid that has come closest to us so far without impacting Earth was “(2020 QG)”. On August 16, 2020, it flew over the Earth, about 3,000 km away, at a speed of about 44,000 km/h. Coming from the direction of the Sun, experts didn’t see it coming: it was seen only 6 hours after it flew by. Even if it collides, it probably does not cause much damage on Earth. Due to its small size, only 3 to 6 meters in diameter, it is believed that it would have burned up in the atmosphere if it came closer.

potentially dangerous asteroids

Potentially dangerous asteroids are asteroids that are close to 0.05 AU (about 7.5 million km) and have an absolute luminosity of 22 mag or less. They are therefore thought to be large enough (at least about 140 m in diameter) to cause considerable damage in the event of an impact. About 20 percent of near-Earth asteroids are classified as potentially hazardous.
There are no potentially dangerous asteroids near Earth today.

9 near earth cruisers orbiting the earth

Asteroids that cross Earth’s orbit are also called orbit cruisers. Near-Earth type asteroids Apollo Out-of-Earth orbit, near-Earth type asteroids atten Crossing Earth’s orbit from within. Today a total of 9 Earth Orbit cruisers are approaching our planet.

  • Apollo asteroids near Earth today: “(2013 PG10)”, “(2015 ED7)”, “(2018 EU1)”, “(2020 FF4)”

  • Aten asteroids near Earth today: “(2002 AO11)”, “(2008 WT62)”, “(2014 RE11)”, “(2018 VC7)”, “(2021 JF)”

Amor and Atira type asteroids do not cross Earth’s orbit. While hard to find atira-Asteroids move entirely within Earth’s orbit, approaching asteroids Cupid Earth’s orbit from outside.

  • Near-Earth Amor asteroid today: “(2012 SY20)”, “(2020 RX2)”
