A huge asteroid 2014-YB35





mrshadow
A huge asteroid 2014-YB35 its going to have a date with Earth. Today will be 4,5 mio km from the Earth. 1km large and with speed of 37000km/h.

It's 4,5mio km huge distance? No, 11x4,5mio km it's distance between the Moon and Earth.

I think the distance between the Moon and the Earth or lunar distance is 384,400 km.

I think jajarvin is right about the lunar distance. Thus as Wikipedia writes this flyby will be in 11.7 x lunar distance.

Not that close. NASA is not worried about this.

Asteroid 367943 Duende ( 2012 DL14 ) was close.

Quote:

This 30 m wide rock flew past Earth on February 15, 2013, passing us at a distance of just over 27,000 kilometres. That comes out to around 7 per cent of the distance to the Moon, which is actually closer to Earth than the ring of geosynchronous communications and weather satellites that circles the planet.
