A large asteroid flew past Earth

Asteroid sized 14 meters flying between the Earth and the Moon. The asteroid 2017 SX17, has a diameter of 6.3 m to 14 m. The Celestial body approached the Earth at 87,000 km. Scientists discovered the asteroid only on September 24.

At present, another heavenly body – 2012 TC4 – is approaching our planet, which will fly to 43 thousand km from the Earth on October 12. Its size is from 12 to 27 m, so it is compared to the Chelyabinsk meteorite, which entered the Earth’s atmosphere on February 15, 2013 and exploded.
