Asteroid Passing Earth Today Live 2022 – Asteroid 2022 KY4 coming to earth at a more rapid speed than a rifle bullet. know asteroid 2022 were to see and how much danger it is.
An asteroid named ‘Asteroid 2022 KY4’, 16,900 mph (27,000 km/h) Hour) is closing the Earth at an estimated speed. It is expected to get the closest to earth on July 17th.
On July 17, 2022, an asteroid is coming extremely close to Earth. Earlier, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) had found a small 41-foot-wide asteroid near our planet and now astronomers have warned of the arrival of a giant asteroid that is set to get the closest to Earth on July 17.
This asteroid has been identified as 2022 KY4. According to astronomers, it is the size of a 50-story skyscraper. It’s about 290 feet wide and is coming closest to our planet in nearly 100 years.
Multiple space agencies including NASA are closely monitoring such object like KY4 asteriod. Even if an asteroid’s rotation positions it millions of miles from our earth, there is an incredibly slight possibility that the asteroid’s rotation could divert barely after interacting with the gravity of a bigger object, like a planet. Even such a small change could potentially set an asteroid on a crash trajectory with Earth on a forthcoming flyby.
Asteroid 2022 KY4 is dangerous to earth
According to the researchers, this space rock will pass through the Earth at a distance of about 3.8 million miles i.e. 6.1 million kilometers. NASA says that this is more than the average distance between the Moon and Earth so there is nothing to stress about. It is far from the asteroid 2022 NF, which came within a radius of 56,000 miles (90,000 kilometers) on July 7.
Asteroid 2022 KY4 16,900 mph (27,000 km/h) hour) is traveling at the approximate speed of. You must assume that it is about eight times faster than a bullet of a high-speed rifle. It first came close to Earth in 1959 and 1948.
