It may be Friday the 13th, but don’t like the thought of a killer asteroid scare.
NASA’s discovery of three near-Earth objects (NEOs), which flew by the planet on Friday, including one that will be coming out in 0.03561 astronomical units (au).
Of the three attributes, 2010 to RM82, 2013 CV83, and 504800 (2010 CO1), do not represent a danger for the Earth and safe to fly by the planet at different times, and in the Center of the Near-Earth Object Studies (CNEOS said.

FOR THE ‘SPOOKY’ FRIDAY THE 13TH-THE HARVEST MOON
Asteroid 2010 to RM82, flew past the planet at about 6:38 a.m. EDT, within 0.04655 astronomical units (au) (by about 4.3 million kilometers) from the planet’s center, CNEOS mentioned. 2010 RM82 traveling nearly 33,000 mph, and it has an approximate diameter of 128 meters.
It is not expected to come close to Earth again until Aug. 12, 2027.
The second asteroid to be designated as an NEO in 2013 CV83, which flew past Earth at 8:54 a.m. EDT, at about 29,000 mph, the agency noted. 2013 CV83 came 0.04134 astronomical units (au) from the planet, and it had a diameter of about 328 feet.
Also, it is not expected to come close to the Earth, at any time, with CNEOS the assessment of the course will be close to the Earth on Feb. 15, 2025.
The third time an asteroid has been well-known as the 504800 (2010 CO1), which is in the zip past the planet at about 11:42 a.m. EDT, at a distance from the 0.03561 astronomical units (au), or approximately 3.3 million kilometres, NASA said.
Asteroid 504800 2010, as CO1) is to move to 32,000 km / h and has a diameter estimated to be 853 feet. The asteroid will fly past Earth next year, on Sept. 16, 2020, with a subsequent visit in September 2021, September 2022 September 2023. After that, it doesn’t come close to the Earth again until January of 2061.
Another asteroid, of 2006, QV89, is scheduled to fly past the Earth at a convenient distance of 4.3 million kilometres on Nov. 27, 2019 at the latest, CNEOS added to it.
NASA has been preparing for planetary defense from asteroid strikes, for a number of years. A recent survey showed that Americans prefer to have a space program that is focused on the potential for asteroid impacts on sending people back to the moon or to Mars.
SCIENTISTS DISCOVER NEW EVIDENCE OF THE ASTEROID THAT KILLED OFF THE DINOSAURS
In 2016, NASA formalized the agency’s preliminary program for the detection and monitoring of NEOs, and put it in the Science Mission Directorate. In June of last year, NASA unveiled a 20-page plan that details the steps the united states should take in order to be better prepared to NEOs, such as asteroids and comets — that is, within 30 million miles of the planet.
In addition to the improvement of, NEO discovery, tracking and characterization and the improvement of the model predictions, the plan also focuses on developing technologies for deflecting NEOs, with the intensification of international co-operation and the creation of a NEO impact, emergency procedures and action protocols.
Earlier this year, NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine said that it is a natural disaster, a strike is not something to be taken lightly, and it is, perhaps, the Earth’s greatest threat.
