NASA tracks THREE asteroids target this way, two spotted just 2 days ago – RT World News

NASA is currently tracking three Earth Terrestrial Objects (NEOs) scheduled to fly past Earth on November 20. It is disturbing that two of the three were spotted last weekend alone, once again raising tensions on planetary defense.

The first space fly and the largest, measuring 157.5 feet to 360.8 feet (48 to 110 meters), will be the 2019 UK6 asteroid, which will cross shortly at about 6.20 GMT (1.20 pm EDT) . It was 2019 UK6 that we had the most advance warning since it was first observed on 24 October.

NEO 2019 UK6 is an asteroid of Amor that orbits around the Sun and Earth from time to time, but very rarely, crossing the Earth's path. , Apollo's asteroids, on the other hand, intersect the Earth's orbit as the planet orbits the sun.

9659006] The Second Flywheel on Wednesday will be 2019 WF, first spotted by NASA's asteroid hunters just two days ago on November 17th. Estimated to be about 24 meters wide, it will make its closest approach to Earth approximately twice the distance to the moon, so there is no danger of an extinction event anyway.

The latter will be 2019 WE, also spotted at the last second on November 17. This asteroid will float along our planet at a distance of about 1.3 million kilometers. [19659003] According to NASA's Center for Earth Object Research (CNEOS), all three will have what is called "near the Earth," but fortunately no one is considered to be a threat.
