A stadium-sized asteroid flies past us

10 months ago

There is no chance that he will hit the Earth. A huge asteroid flies past our planet today, which reaches the size of a stadium.

Astronomers will be able to see the flight of a monster rock through telescopes. The asteroid, known as 2002 NN4, dangerously approached the Earth, but the chances of it falling into our planet are equal to zero. A space rock will fly about 13.25 times the distance between the Earth and the Moon, which is 5.2 million kilometers.

The asteroid is more remarkable for its size, its diameter reaches from about 300 to 570 meters. Although the object is large, it is rather dim (paler than even Pluto), so it can only be seen with powerful telescopes.
