Near-Earth Asteroids Today: Between 629 and 1406 Meters in Size! this rock is coming closer to earth

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

8 asteroids will reach their closest point in their orbit to Earth this Monday. Observations of the largest asteroids currently near Earth.

NASA currently knows of over 1.1 million asteroids. Thousands more are discovered every month. Special attention is paid to the so-called near-Earth asteroids, which do not revolve around the Sun like most asteroids in the asteroid belt, but orbit closer to Earth and therefore may also be dangerous to the blue planet. This article gives you an overview of all the near-Earth asteroids that are approaching their closest point in their orbit today.
On Monday, December 12, 2022, a total of 8 asteroids will reach their nearest station during the day.

Biggest asteroid near earth today

“516984 (2012 PN28)” Currently the largest with an estimated diameter of 629 to 1406 m small star near the earth. “516984 (2012 PN28)” will make its closest approach to Earth at 07:00 today. The second largest asteroid near the earth is “(2008 GD)” And its estimated diameter is 291 to 652 meters. “(2014 AD17)” Today it ranks third among the largest near-Earth asteroids (237 m – 530 m).

This asteroid is coming especially close to the earth today.

The closest thing to Earth today is an asteroid “(2020 XE1)”, It approaches our planet at 3.10 pm at a distance of up to 9.2 million km.
The closest asteroid that has ever come to us without colliding with Earth was “(2020 QG)”. On August 16, 2020, it flew near the Earth at a speed of about 44,000 km/hr at a distance of about 3,000 km. Coming from the direction of the Sun, experts didn’t see it coming: it was only seen 6 hours after it flew by. Even if it collided, it probably would not have caused much damage to the earth. Due to its small size, only 3 to 6 meters in diameter, it is believed that it would burn up in the atmosphere if it came close enough.

potentially dangerous asteroid

Potentially hazardous asteroids are asteroids that approach as close as 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 significant damage in the event of a collision. About 20 percent of near-Earth asteroids are classified as potentially hazardous.
Today there are no potentially dangerous asteroids near the Earth.

7 near earth orbiter cruiser

Asteroids that cross Earth’s orbit are also called orbit cruisers. near-earth type asteroid Apollo Cross Earth’s orbit outside, near-Earth type asteroids aten Cross Earth’s orbit from within. Today a total of 7 Earth Orbit Cruisers are coming towards our planet.

  • Apollo asteroids near Earth today: “516984 (2012 PN28)”, “(2008 GD)”, “(2019 CJ4)”, “(2020 XE1)”

  • Aten asteroids near Earth today: “(2005 YR3)”, “(2008 TF)”, “(2015 XQ55)”

Amor and Atira type asteroids do not cross the Earth’s orbit. while hard to find ATIRA-Asteroids move entirely within Earth’s orbit, near type asteroids Cupid Earth’s orbit from outside.

  • Near-Earth Amor asteroid today: “(2014 AD17)”
