An asteroid that’s greater than 800m excessive and over 500m large is ready to race previous Earth on 29 November at a pace of 90,000km/h. The asteroid 2000 WO107 is as tall because the Burj Khalifa in Dubai and is predicted to cross the planet at round 9.09 pm (AETD) on Sunday.
And opposite to stories that an asteroid the scale of the world’s largest constructing is hurtling towards Earth, Asteroid 153201 or (2000 WO107) will truly miss the blue planet by almost 2.7 million miles.
Categorised as a Close to-Earth Asteroid (NEA), the 153201 is an Aten-class Asteroid. NASA JPL has labeled it as a ‘Doubtlessly Hazardous Asteroid’ as a consequence of its predicted shut cross with Earth.
The asteroid orbits the solar each 318 days coming as shut as o.20 AU and going so far as 1.62 AU from the solar in an orbit that’s extremely elliptical. The asteroid is bigger than 97 % of asteroids and its spectral kind None signifies that it probably comprises nickel, iron and cobalt.
Since 2000 WO107’s orbit is 0.00 AU from Earth’s orbit at its closest level, it implies that the orbit irrelatively near the Earth’s one. The asteroid has 28 shut approaches predicted within the coming many years.
It was final formally noticed on 13 January 2018 and after 29 November, it’s once more imagined to cross by Earth carefully on 6 February 2031.
