Earth is approaching a large asteroid

The European Space Agency reported the approach of an asteroid, whose size is 15-30 meters in diameter, which is comparable to the whole house.

Scientists note that the effect from the entrance of an asteroid of a similar size to the atmosphere of our planet can be compared with what had fallen in 2013, a meteorite in Chelyabinsk.

According to the director of the European Space Flight Control Center Rolf Densing, the asteroid will fly very close to the Earth – only 44 thousand kilometers.

Astronomers plan to study the space object in as much detail as possible, including information about its composition, as long as it is visible.
