A very large asteroid is coming towards our earth 19 April 2017.
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory announced in this week that the “2014 JO25 asteroid”, was spotted a few years ago for the first time, & it will fly by Earth on April 19. It is coming from the direction of our Sun. Even Amateur astronomers can See this with a small telescope at night as it flies away from us.
This Asteroid is very big in size. According to Nasa it is almost 1 Km wide in Size & There is No Possibility of the asteroid to collide with our planet earth but it will pass the earth from a very small distance. The distance from Earth will be 1.8 Million Kilometers “More than four time as the Distance of earth from Moon”. Some People will Say it is very large distance but for 1 km wide asteroid, this distance is very Small.
We don’t know very well about these kind of asteroid but this approach will give us chance to know more about them.
Nasa Said, It is predicted to brighten at about magnitude 11, when it could be visible in even small optical telescopes for one or two nights before it fades as the distance from Earth rapidly increases.
