The agency has informed that Astroid will pass close to the Earth at 10:38 in the morning. Scientists have placed this astroid in the class Neer Earth Astroid (NEA). NEA is such a group of comets and astroids that fall into the orbit due to the gravity of nearby planets. Because of this, they come closer to the earth. The special thing is that NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab has described it as very dangerous due to its passing close to the Earth.
Even after coming close to the Earth, this astroid will be 43 lakh km away from the earth. This distance is more than the distance between the Earth and the Moon. According to reports, this astroid was officially spotted on 13 January 2018. After 29 November, it is expected that it will pass so close to the Earth on 6 February 2031.
