June 23 a dangerous asteroid will approach the Earth

On Saturday, June 23, a dangerous asteroid will approach the minimum distance from Earth. Scientists do not exclude that a space object can be more dangerous than a Chelyabinsk meteorite. The asteroid bears number 441 987. At the minimum distance from the Earth it will be at 04:38 Moscow time.

The diameter of the dangerous giant is 300 meters. At the specified time it will be from the Earth at a distance of 3.036 million kilometers. The speed of the asteroid is 45.65 thousand kilometers per hour.

NASA astronomers discovered a space body in 2010 with the help of infrared telescope WISE, which patrols the Earth’s orbit since the winter of 2009.
